I have a hunch it is being done to reduce the likelihood of work unit shortages for the new projects by significantly reducing the population of eligible donors. If that's the case, this would be a situation of responding to a vocal minority of complainers, as I'm sure I speak for most of us when I say "Who cares if there's a work unit shortage for bigadv?" If I'm right about this, then I must admit it disappoints me somewhat that they are pandering to those who are in it for the glory rather than the science.

Meh. Oh well. I complain way more on the Internet than I do in real life. Bring on the big'uns!

Can't wait to see some results of this new project (PPD wise of course)

They should have named it bigberta ;)

For those folding with an 980x or 970, I'm curious to know if PPD will be more on those new WU...........

In term of bandwith, it would be nice to know how much MB is the unit once finished.

I would like to see some numbers for these. 12 cores means I can't use vmware though. Might have to check out a real version of Linux if the reward is great enough.

The WU is only available on the 64bit Linux Client, Chris.

edit: then again, I just re-read your reply. Please disregard mine... I'm tired.

If going to bigbeta, increase the ram size to 3Gb, 4GB if possible for the Client.

Been reading about some insane ppd folding those WUs... you guys won't believe this.

Come on rig, get one!

I seemed to have ran out of work folding bigadv units so I switched to these. I'm running a I7 920 oced to 3.8ghz with 6 gbs of ram and I have folded 25% in a day so far. I'm glad I ran into your post my computer feels useless if I'm not folding with it, even though i use it for everything. (mainly gaming)
Thanks for the tip. Cheers
