I am using the V7 newest client in windows, I am folding on a 3930k and 2 GTX560Ti 448's.
I have been toying around with different SMP settings.
I have found that folding on 10 threads is much better than using all 12.
When I am folding lets say a 7036, when I am at SMP 12 and also folding on the GPU's this project nets my cpu roughly 23k PPD.
While folding the same project 7036, when I am set to SMP 10, and also folding on the GPU's, this project nets me 34k PPD.
That is an 11k increase while using less of my CPU. If I am to understand correctly, Nvidia GPU's take virtually no CPU cylcles, unlike ATI cards.
Is this no longer the case? Is it more efficient to dedicate some CPU to GPU? Or is this just a fluke and needs more data to be definitive.
Also, my 3930k is only OC'd to 4.2Ghz, as I am having thermal issues when I go higher than that at the moment. (this is neither here not there, just to negate the "You should be getting way more than that on that chip")
Thanks in advance for any info/insight into this
As always, FOLD ON, OCN!
