    How long does it take to do a work unit?

    I just started folding this evening, it's been running for about 4 hours and it says the WU wil be finished sometime in the wee hours of Saturday... is this normal or am I running like a bag of spanners??

    Well without knowing
    a) The client (SMP, stand alone, GPU)
    b) Your system specs
    c) The work unit type (although these don't seem to vary by a huge amount now)

    We really cant say

    Find what client your using and I will have put up some rough timings for units I had completed when that was written and the specs of the machines that did it.

    Re: How long does it take to do a work unit?

    I've got a 2600+/abitAN7/1GB so Saturday sounds about right for a big WU...

    I'm about 1/3 through and my next one is due Thursday morning.

    Get Lynni's PC folding too... hehe

    thanks for joining Tumble

    every bit counts, and as I've said litereally a hundred times, it's all the smaller inputs that make the difference.

    Are you on Economy 7 electricity (ie cheaper from midnight to 7am)?

    If you arem use those PC's while you sleep to warm the dogs bedroom which is what I do

    Re: How long does it take to do a work unit?

    Manx electric works different to that - more old skool but I think there's a similar off-peak rate thing going on, haven't really looked tbh as we pay a DD, and we've never been found wanting with the PCs on all the time. The rest of the house doesn't use much juice anyway - it's that small it doesn't use much of anything really....




    PS: got herself's pooter folding now too, slowly, but folding...

    Re: How long does it take to do a work unit?

    Worked out why this thing was being so slow - the Sempron 1.8gHz cpu in my laptop at work completed a WU quicker than my home PC which has got a 2800 barton in it - it was this chuffing PSU I've got.. when it crapped out the last time, it decided to reset all the BIOS to defaults, thus the machine thought it had an Athlon 833 in it according to the boot screen, and CPUZ told me it was running at 1100mHz, which is crap, so I've tweaked it and now it's running at 2083mHz, which is MUCH better
