so I installed folding on my roommates PS3 yesterday around 6pm, and it's only completed 4 units so far , isn't this a little slow? I thought PS3's were supposed to be folding power houses? :blink: (and the WU's it did complete weren't worth many points)

 

It hasn't been shut off at all since I installed it. It does go into screensaver mode while folding... does that somehow throttle down the CPU?

 

is this normal or am I retarded (or both :bah: )

back in 2006 before CUDA 900PPD was like amazing when my 3700+ would only get 150ppd.

 

 

the screen saver is normal btw. since the ps3 is running a nvidia 7800gtx it can't do CUDA so folding is coming 100% from the SPUs.

Yeah apparently the new thing is the nvidia client... a $110 9800GT can put out 5500+ ppd... and the best price/performance ratio is coming out of the 9600GT which makes about 4200.

 

And I like it... doesn't slow/eat system resources like CPU clients.
