Limiting i7 cores through Set Affinity a PPD increase? - Page 2

Yes, you should see an increase. -bigadv does not scale linearly according to core usage when running GPU clients. It's best to isolate the GPU2 clients to the last core. I actually picked up 3K ppd by doing this.

Your PPD on -bigadv seems to scale perfectly to frame times. If the point loss due to longer frames/total time is not made up for with the GPU(s) then it's not worth it to fold on them. Your losing points and consuming more power to run the GPU. If he is folding on his 7 CPU threads @ 4.20 GHz and his card and CPU combined keep him well over 36000 PPD then it's all good, if not then it's more worth it to just fold on the CPU. It really is that simple..
