Default New GPU2 WU for NVIDIA

Couple of new WU were released for NVIDIA Folders using GPU2. These new projects are dam fast! They are Project 5799, 3469, and 3470. I currently have project 3470 on my 9600GT and getting 6400PPD!!! It's taking me just 1 minute to complete a frame! I wish I get more of these when I'm doing the current one.

I said leased instead of released...

Apparently the GTX cards have a drop in PPD, and they're folding slower than these older cards. High shader clocks ftw? Fast new 445 points WU (P3470).

Whoa. I raised my core clocks and memory clocks from my usual folding speeds to a full OC setting while the shaders remained at 1800Mhz, I got an extra 1000PPD. That or the WU just automatically sped up coincidentally when I changed my clocks...

It seems that these units are small, so they don't benefit much from more shaders but do benefit significantly from higher clockspeeds.

Wow. My GTX 285s are only getting ~8300PPD on these right now. I usually get over 10,000K on them. My GTS 250 is got ~8200PPD on one of these earlier. Nuts that the 285 and the 250 is so close in performance.....

Cus these new WU are all about your core, shader, and memory speeds, not the amount of shaders that you have. At least that's the conclusion I've come to. Never before had my 9600GT pull 7000 PPD.
