Default News for Bigadv folders: new Bigadv16 projects

Update for those folding bigadv:
Folding@home
Quote:
As previously announced, our plan is to shorten the deadlines of the BA projects. As a result, assignments will have a 16 core minimum. We've been developing the new projects for the new "bigadv-16". This development has taken a bit longer than we expected, but we are now completing internal testing and reading beta projects for bigadv-16. We are bringing a new server online for bigadv-16. It will start by offering a new class of bigadv projects, but we will soon add in a number of projects on the same server that are more similar to bigadv projects donors have already seen. We want to make these work units available for testing, but at the same time we are still examining the points yield of these bigadv projects. So the points valuation remains a work in progress; we may alter points, bonuses, and/or deadlines in the process of testing.
Vijay ends the post with this:

As a side note, we recognize that the number of cores is a somewhat crude measure for system performance. Long-term, we have some ideas on how we'd like to improve this and use better metrics. But in the near term, we are using this admittedly imperfect metric.

Looks like ppd is pretty low on the new BA-16 WUs (p8101) so far but they are still in Beta, should be interesting to see what it finally settles at.

[H] has a thread on the new Beta WUs already here

News from the Folding Forum.

It appears that the base points for 6900, 6901 and 8101 -bigadv 16 units will be, or have gone up.

Good news, no?

or it could be a move to lower the PPD to allow for non-ridiculous PPD from the bigger folding farms and would drop the PPD of regular folders. this way they can allow for more growth in tech.
