See, while I'm not an active folder, I think it's kind of a double standard to cap GPU, but not SMP. Sure, GPU is faster than most normal SMP, but the newest CPUs and SMP clients are turning ridiculous points that can only really be matched by people folding on their GPUs without restriction.

How about you try for a month just saying anything goes as far as PPD as long as the number of core/client rules stays the same. Then we can figure out just how unbalanced stuff would become without caps.

I'm a graduate student, and I develop HPC codes in Fortran and Matlab to make the world better.
My user name too long or weird for you? Feel free to call me LBN. FYI, it's French for "the black box."

Well this would work out great for me. I would stop folding on my CPU and fold on my GTX 260 instead. I will double my PPD.

I guess whatever has to be done, I will really miss the team comp.

Question: If I am hitting 5400PPD and one of my teammates are hitting ~1300PPD, can I make up the difference for them and cap them out at 2k plus my 2k? Or is each individual member responsible for their own points?

Each person is responsible for their own points. You'd get 2350 PPD.
And the other person would get whatever they scored below the 2350.
