hey guys....im in good ranks in folding, but this is really funky. my 4.3 ghz system always only does crappy little WU that are only worth liek 50pionts....but then my moms computer, a 1.8ghz P4 always gets the 240-600 point tinker/gromacs...
...so im so confused, because my faster comps produce less then the crappy ones that i have. all the compuyters have the program installed the same....and ive tryed clearing all previos projescts and preferences, but still got the same WUs. its gettin all the cpu power, but still folds worse...why?

stability isnt the issue, it passes prime95 with flying colors...

but i guess i can check the >5mb thing...even though it takes up 40,000kb of memory...

There does seem to be something else involved actually. I remember one of my crappy AMD's (2000+ or something) got a WU that was estimated to take 3 or 4 months to complete.

do you use your computer alot more than your mom? if that's the case then whatever you are doing is probably interrupting the client's processing time. If your mom doesn;t do much then the software has all the time in the world to crunch WU's...

Where exactly does it show how many points the WU is worth? All I can find is remaining frames, mine seems to always work on 400 frame projects.

match your WU number in here, then see how much
