Default A folding quarrel

So iv just been starting to fold and im noticing a odd trend, my SMP client takes maybe a day to do one project... But my 580 blares through them bi-hourly, yet my SMP still gets a projected 15K PPD... Whats the deal here? Im guessing im probably just an idiot and the SMP load is more, or due the the fact GPUs are much more powerful.

Perfectly normal for the SMP client to take longer to complete a work unit... some of mine take up to 2 days to complete. I guess it's because the gpu is much more efficient at crunching the data and because the SMP work units are different (much larger I think).
