Anyone ready for this CPU and fold
 
Damn ... im sure that can be great folding with that. I Just can't image a 2P or 4P WOW

Wow! 20 threads.

Anyone know off the top of their heads how many cores are supported max for folding?

supaflyx3 December 29, 2011 01:23 PM

24 IIRC

64 cores become a pain to deal with. Better to run dual Clients with a '-bigadv -32 flag'. :ph34r:

DT has like 4 of those puppy's I believe... :shok: I think he's still waiting for :censored: heatsinks that will fit.
Will be very interesting indeed once the beast comes to life...

I wonder if he's using a 4p board for those chips, or just 2p? can't wait to see pics of his setup regardless. hope he shares. Assuming one ran 2p, -bigadv -40 or a client for each chip? Very cool.

I believe this is the board he has on-hand:

Cool. I can see now that only a special heat sink would be compatible.

There's some early info on the build in this thread:

that board alone is 2000$. factor in the RAM and 4 CPUs like that and is a 20K $ system, the price of a new small car.
