How long should this unit take? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If you put your CPU client on idle priority and your GPU on low priority, you can set your CPU to 100% without reducing the ppd from your GPU. This is under "advanced settings" in the client.

If your GPU ppd is still slightly lower than it should be after doing that, go to the task manager and set the Windows priority for your GPU client to "normal" or "below normal". You can use a tool such as ProcessLasso to automate this part so you don't need to do it every time you start the client.

You can probably increase your PPD a bit by running the CPU client under a linux virtual machine, but the linux client has some bugs that require you to restart it every few days, so it's only helpful if you check your machine regularly.

It's folding. Who cares if you only get 1200PPD. Also, like others said, the 6701 and 6702 WUs are pure crap. Once it passes and you don't get one of those WUs the PPD should go up.
This is overclock.net, not wesettleforwhateverwecanget.net. If there's more potential, why not go for it?

CPU folding isn't worthless at all at the moment; with a very fast system you could see as much as 150k PPD. It's not really fair to compare ppd from the latest available GPU core with a CPU that is four generations old.
8800 is pretty old, just saying, it is also 4 generations old, so he is comparing apples to apples. 1.6kppd is pretty good, being from a phenom 1
