Yup, and then running 2x VMWare setups on a Q66 since they were really just 2x E66 glued together on a package.

When they released projects that used SSE2 there were tasks that ran 50% faster on my Centrino laptop compared to my AMD Barton desktop that was still clocked 50% faster.

First 3 years was Gromacs core cpu only. October 2006 Gpu folding was introduced. SMP and PS3 clients of March that year.

[email protected] was the first to break petaFLOP barrier getting into the Genness World Records.

Ah the good old days of folding on 9800GX2 and 8800GT cards, and folding on quad and dual core CPUs
And before my time, there was no GPU folding...

mmonnin And before that 1 task per thread so you'd have to open up multiple command prompts if you had a 2P for 2 whole cores. In like 2002 there was a project with credit less than 1 measly point

deafboy lol, I miss it a lot to be honest with you. Especially the days before the 4p boards took over, are those still even a thing for folding?!

I feel like I kind of just dropped off the face of the earth with folding after I moved.

QMopar Wild...I remember back in my day I had the FAH on 16 PCs. Wow, I sound old. We also used to have to walk to school uphill both ways

The Pook Pretty much. High core count CPUs still do okay.
