I almost posted from the hip and said this was not so good. These numbers look similar to the frame times I was getting when I was testing no HT @ 4200 MHz on my i7 - My data on that is at home, so I can't look at it now, but if I can dig it up I'll post it in here. I was timing frames at a lot of different settings to see how much I could min-max the TDP from the wall to actual point production, trying to determine if I should (maaaybe) fold under 4.20 GHz... The bonus points on the -bigadv seem to throw the numbers off, so I stayed running 4200 MHz because I was shooting for a mil by the EOM.
Whenever I extrapolated that extra 7 to 8 min / frame x100 it gave me the heebie-jeebies..That's like 12-ish more hours on the WU.. so many points lost..
I wonder if it will likely get better for Sandy Bridge folding after the a3 core gets optimized a little more since SB was not even out when a3 came out?..
(on edit - I lied, my 4200 HT off data is for a proj 6701 WU..
