That doesn't sound right. The GPU might be "stealing" cycles from the CPU client. I have a Phenom II X4 940 BE at 3 GHz, it's my file server that doesn't get used very heavy and it's producing about 10k ppd right now (smp only).

I have a dual xeon (LGA 771) 8 cores in total (linux only smp) and it gets between 16k and 22k.

Both systems above only use smp folding. I'd try setting your smp client to use 7 cores and then set the affinity of the gpu/smp client so it only uses the core that the smp core isn't using.
