well, I am not 100% sure the performance differences and such, but if you could get 2 high performance gpus and declock them some to get thier power down, you may get similar folding power to multi-cpu systems?
I do bitcoin mining, I had stopped down F@H awhile back, I know with bitcoin, AMD most certainly is faster.
F@H Core 16: Taking AMD GPU Folding to the Next Level?
I know AMD is no where near currently as fast to my knowledge as Nvidia is in Folding, however, that may change soon enough, the thing with Nvidia is their hardware generally speaking is easier to reach its performance maximums, AMD is alot more complicated to reap the benefits from, main reason is the shader design, but this being said, once they can(example bitcoining) AMD cards really do trump Nvidia cards.
