    Woah - we're getting some big names cropping up now!
    Yep, IBM should be behind us in 2.5 hours and joystiq are about a day away. TweakGuides and DivX are also close by . However things look set to become very difficult once we pass 200. As it stands now the teams table suggests that it will take us 11 years to get to 45th, lol..... We still require more slaves to add to the cause! hehe.


    EDIT: 10 minutes after I posted this and it seems we just past IBM!

    we knew xeon was faster than opteron for floats when we bought the kit

    the opteron is for memory-bound code (which gromacs is not)

    a ps3 is still only worth about 900 points a day - a dual-core cpu is twice that

    okay, it's unquestionable now. the xeon nodes are almost finished with WU 3 (96%), the opteron nodes are only halfway (46%)

    and we seem to have a dodgy opteron node, which is only on 16%

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    The difference between my AMD Barton 2500+ (wrongly thought he was a 2400 earlier ) and my folks old crappy laptop is staggering.

    Cruddy intel laptop at approx 60% of a 5000 step job, AMD at 30% of a 1500 step job :s

    They were started within 5 mins of each other and neither have been used for anything which should have detracted from the folding (bit of web browsing on each)

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    Doug, they are different unit types so they will run at different speeds independent of the CPU type. Of course the may be a CPU element as well (probably is) but until they both do the same type of unit you cant really compare, not all frames are created equal!

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    Ah ok :]

    I'm sure in general the AMD is a better machine, probably due to it having double the RAM and a decent GFX card

    It's done me well over the last 3 years anyway :]

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    I'm going to order a replacement HDD for my dead box and get that back up and running ASAP, I wish the pande group would pull their finger out of their ass about using other graphics cards for GPU folding...

    Apparently the 3870's stream processing should utterly monster the units...

    I did toy around with the thought of buying a 40gb PS3 purely for folding, but I'm not sure if it's worth the cost/point

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    Sod it for the price I'd upgrade your 'my system' pc and build another out of left over parts!

    I agree with the GPU thing, would be great to see nVidia cards able to fold, I've got an 8800 and a 6600 doing nothing for 90% of the time

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    LOL, I've already got 2 main pc's a laptop and a PS3 - I think that should be sufficient... I don't run the laptop with folding, I don't like it running 24/7..

    The other box just needs another couple of gigs of ram and a new HDD, and that can start crunching again, although I might see if I can nab a nice x1950 from ebay and get it gpu folding too..
