Hey guys, as Some know.. I started folding 5 days ago, with 1 260 and 1 8800gt working hard, already 1,212 place!

Anways, seeing some threads, How do I get my CPU a higher PPD? Right now I only get 291PPD for the CPU, and close to 7.5kPPD with the 260.

When I see people get like 2k PPD with their CPU, why mine low? I'm I not using the right program?

Thanks! cheers

the stock [email protected] client doesn't use all cores...if you want to run SMP it utilizes all cores.

personally on a dual core just run what you have its not worth the hassle and full usage of cores to get a few more pts.

Hm, thanks for the bit of info, reading that guide quickly, seems very confusing at first glance


Once I get my 2nd 260 online, I'm sure it be enough points!!

You would get substantially more than with regular cpu :/ prob 2k a day at least. Especially at those clocks. But 2 260s will get you a lot as well.

SMP is very benificial as long as you know how to prioritize and divide tasks between cores... I SMP on every dual core I come into contact with
generally adds about 1.5kppd per dual core client to my folding stats
which is great
I suggest looking into it

Yeah depending one how you set it up I would say you'd net an extra 2000 ppd. My dual does 4000ppd at 4.1 right running native Linux. If you ran a VMWare SMP client you would get better ppd than just the regular Windows SMP client.

I am using SMP myself with my Q6600, which is racking up 3500PPD.

I wish I got 3500ppd with my Q6600. I have it @ 3.4 and only getting 2500PPD.

quick question, as Im setting up SMP

it wants to know how much memory to use, im following the guide, on this step

Memory, in MB, to indicate (1013 available) [1013]?

i have 4093 to use, but guide says lower if want to, if use programs that need it.. i just use firefox and xfire mostly when folding, what should I set it to?

Sorry for a double post, but Isn't SMP suppose to run dual cores? Its only working Core 1, at 90% to where I set it, core 2 is just sitting idle..

Shows I'm getting 3.9k PPD off the SMP
and 13k off the 260

Did I set it up right?

Also says deadline is in 10min, my ETA from FahMon is 1hr and 19mins...? I think I did something wrong.. what happens if I dont meet the deadline?

sounds right use set affinty 2 or prifinnity then look at the core usage.

did you create a shortcut and put -smp at the end?

Guide did not mention this at all.... will do when I get home.

I did set this, -smp -verbosity 9

Think that guide is outdated......hope I didnt screw up too much


edit; set affinty? no clue what that means, sorry.. this guide is bogus

Nope, GPU2 and SMP are totally different clients afaik. You also have the choice to take small or big worklogs. Seeing as I am only home for 6 hrs of the day and on my PC for 2 of that, I take bigger ones, more PPD, longer run times though. If you set it to 100% useage it will use only 1 full core (usually 75% of one and 25% of the other), you will have a full core of your CPU left over for w/e you need to do.
