This may be a dumb question, but what do you guys think.

Would having your system running dual channel improve folding?

The reason I ask is that the mobile 2600's and the DFI's I ordered came in...so I'm gonna end up swapping over the XP3000 for the 2600. The DFI's have dual channel capability...so I was curious to know if it helped at all.

TIA

You got the dfi lanparty nfii ultra b Xav cause it 's a nice board I've had no trouble with it, oh and I've also got the 2600xp mobile too. You know when you say Dual channel your talking about dual channel ram right I thought most boards had that now. I really can't say if it's help me fold any quicker because this is the only set up I've used for folding, but lets say i've had no probs with it yet

hehehe, yeah, my other DFI Ultra Inf is awesome.

My XP3000 is running on an older gigabyte board...good stable board, but not PCI/AGP lock...nor dual channel

I was just curious about the dual channel thing because I'll go buy two more 256meg sticks to make both new systems dual channel... (if it folds better that is)

BTW folks, we've got a team hot on our trail...no one else is even thinkin about overtaking us, but this team has got the momentum and the 24 hr point average to make a good move on us.

I have yet to see that much of a difference that dual channel makes on anything. I wouldnt think it warrants spending any money on if you wouldnt have on the contrary.

Blah

I've seen benchmarks suggesting dual-channel has only marginal advantage over single stuff, but it was nothing to shout about.
