I'm getting them again, knew it was too good to be true. Are you starting to get a decent ppd from the 260's yet ?.

Man, about 70% of the WUs I have done since I started have been 511s. I am trying to crack 12000pts in 24hrs but just cant get there. My best so far has been 11966pts. So close and yet...

EDIT - That score is a combination of both my GPUs.

THe GTX 285 seems to get between 6500 - 9500 ppd while my 8800gts is getting between 3900-6300 ppd.

What I don't understand is that it was ChriskWarren (I believe) that did some tests and found out that dropping the mem / core had little to no impact on ppd. And I found the same on the 280s...

Odd.

The same thing is posted on all the different Folding forums I read...

There must be some magical cutoff numbers you can't go below, either that or your cards are just really really picky...

Yea i underclock my memory and core from 625 too 500 and 1900 stock to 1800 sometimes 1700 and i dont notice a hit just got my shaders on 1830 on my 8800GT. Maybe the newers cards are different in some way and how they handle the underclocking ??
