Not getting bigadv
 
Hey guys just started folding again since the weather is getting cooler. Is it just me? or is there no more bigadv, my rig has been on for 3 days but not even one bigadv is that normal? I remember a few months back all I got was bigadv.

I had bigadv units regularly over the last couple of weeks, however today it seems all I'm getting is standard smp units. There could be a shortage, however iirc the bigadv units are only worth ~20% more than the standard smp units in terms of ppd.

Basically it works out to ~31k ppd for standard smp units for me and ~37k ppd with the 6900 units.

Are you using a VM or no?

No, not at the moment. I know it gives more ppd, but I'm currently lazy and don't want to setup the backups ... my power grid is not the best here.

Is this w/ normal SMP units or bigadv?

Mine's a 2600k running at 4.8GHz. Once this work unit finishes up I'll make the switch to vmware folding again, I've already went through the steps to create the backup images (decided to not be lazy).

This is normal smp

Just swapped over to VMware, and managed to pick up a 2684. Will report on what the ppd is for my cpu and clockspeeds once a few frames are done.

I haven't done bigadv since pretty much the chimp challenge. I was hoping P2684's would be died by now.
