My System Specs

Default

I just don't understand how putting a few CPU cycles towards GPU Folding makes that much of an impact. I would think that the PPD produced from the GPU's would be more than the lost PPD from the CPU. Isn't the CPU utilization from GPU folding like 3-5% for nvidia cards? If this is the case then I can't see it being better to only run CPUs instead of CPU and GPU in the same system.

Has somebody actually tested this? Perhaps somebody can clarify the situation for me and Linus a little as I am sure he is wondering the same thing.
