Here are some interesting stats:

The GPU is only working at 68% it seems using this client.

In the link to our stats you will notice a team called "whoopass". That would be the Nvidia folding team consisting of GTX 280 cards.

Points are UP!!! 196 points for 3 WUs.

Hmmm....I was hoping for a bit more than that.

One thing is for sure though: the a GTX 280 folding I won't need a heater in the winter.
Thats a step in the right direction to reducing your electricity bill already Sky, now if you're married or got a girl just float that by her and see what she thinks.



Just out of curiousity can I join the folding @ home team for HWC or is there some special requirements to be a part of it?

/me removes his HWC F@H badge and pins it onto Eagle Eye. *slight nod*
Make us proud son! *shakes hand*

I have not been using it lately anyway, it is too much of a pita to constantly make sure my computers have internet access when each WU is done and even then it can take a long while to download and upload(disrupting anything else using the connection). Not to mention that even though I mostly use OS X, when I get more games for both Mac OS and Windows I will be rebooting more often. I have not been folding at all recently though so I don't really deserve a F@H badge.

Does seem kinda low. Most of the ATI WUs are 196, and I can pump off 1.XX in a 3 hour period.

Keep in mind that the points given out by each different WU are not necessarily a perfect match to the processing power. The # is set arbitrarily but is monitored to keep some kind of logic to the PPD it puts out.

If FAHMon works with the beta, you can set it up to use the last three units to generate a PPD. The stats format isn't going to give you that unless you're running 24/7.
