I can't see why they'd bother spending any time on core counts for -bigadv - if they want to ensure only the fastest systems can run those units, the easiest way is just to tighten the deadlines, and give no points at all if a unit is submitted past the preferred deadline.

If a single core machine could be made that was fast enough to complete a -bigadv unit within the timescale and therefore help the project, why disallow the results just because you feel only high core count machines should be good enough for the task? Makes no sense.

If they kill bigadv on x6 and i7. oo my I wonder which will get more points running smp as they will only count real cores.biggrin.gif
As I see its not really about the points its about the final product. What if running these VM with folding on them is causing a slight miscalculation. The model built with it is slightly different then reality. And they develop a drug to cure cancer, and end up with zombies.
Think about it.biggrin.gif

I think threads can still be used to Fold on; they just won't be counted as a core for -bigadv detection.

Problem?

I, for one, welcome our new zombie overlords.

What is really bugging me is, WHY won't they let us do the -bigadv WU's?
If we could know the reason, I think a lot of us would be more understanding(including me).

I fold for the cause, so I'd rather do a 20k ppd WU that helps the project than a 30k ppd WU that doesn't help the project. I just want to know why I can't do the 30k ppd one. confused.gif

Time is critical for bigadv.
Some people who fold bigadv don't meet the preferred deadline.

-bigadv is meant for high end computers, which would finish the WUs in a matter of hours.

Not for i7s/x6s/2500ks that wil take the majority of the deadline to finish them.

Well, first off we dont know their plans for bigadv as of yet. I seem to be inclined that they will leave it as is for now (until moar better sweet 8+ core cpus come out). simply because there are very few folders with better hardware and the wu's wouldnt get done (imo).

Secondly, (and this isnt directed at you scurk) we should all stop freaking out about the changelog. They were very gracious in listening to the will of the people in being more forthcoming with information, and I would hate to have them change their minds because everyone got in an uproar. Just hold onto your butts, and we'll find out exactly whats changed and how it impacts us once the client is released :-D

EDIT: Anyone know what happened to deeeeebs?
