I too don't care what people fold -bigadv with as long as it doesn't slow the project down. Though you may not read that into some of my post on the FF.

I'm in the process of building a 4p Magny Cours like what BaBa, tear and sfield have so the x6 will be going back to BOINC very soon anyway and it will be a moot point. Though I may try v7 with it

At least I'll be ready for BD and Interlagos. Some of the -bigadv test runs on Interlagos are very very impressive.

Fold on my friend!

First off, its all speculation that v7 will implement some mystical line of code to make sure your not folding with 4 cores.

Second, If you think about it... why the heck would they care anyways? My i7 has a tpf of 46 mins, where my i5 has a tpf of 27 mins... seems to me like they would want that i5 folding bigadv to turn around projects faster.. Just my $0.02

And that's what Grandpa_01 and I have been doing...speculating. We don't know, only PG knows.

imack eek.gif What happens when you get a 2684 on that thing. It has to have close to 1 hr frame times which will not make the dead line. Don't tell me you are deleting the WU's. Why don't you put that thing on -smp. In my opinion that is 1 that should be blocked from folding bigadv. It is definitely slowing things down.

If Stanford considered a 1 hour TPF as "slowing the project down" wouldn't they have changed their deadlines for bigadv?

I think it's been proven that the x4s and x6s can do the work in time and that's what's most important.

I think you need to do a little math.
1hr per frame = 100 hrs to complete WU
Preferred Deadline = 4 days no bonus after that and that WU is assighned to another folder thus slowing down the project.
4 X 24 = 96 hrs so 1hr frame times = 8995 points 8995 / 4 = 2248 PPD

So why would they change their deadline it should already discourage people from running them. If a machine can not complete every bigadv WU that might be assigned to them on time then that machine should not be running bigadv.

What's a final deadine then? So the WUs are reassigned even if they're finished before the final deadline?

My normal tpf is 31-34 minutes. My last bigadv had 58 minute tpf and I still got >30k ppd.
