is there a comparison chart somewhere between video card ppds?


My 4890 play around 2,6 k and near 4 K , but mostly around 3 k it depend on the WU. that's with a regular client on the cpu, if I use a smp 2 , the ATI lost 20 - 25% and also reduce the SMP 2 client enough to not justify to use both of them at the same time ( the ATI have a huge overload on the CPU compare to the Nvidia)

im using SMP2, with Zero's trick there's too little reduction in CPU folding (definately not ~3000 ppd worth, at least on my Q9400. I get about ~5-6k ppd on my CPU) to warrant elimination of one of the folders.

I'll have to get the 8800gt's folding soon...
