        Re: Folding @ Home

        After folding for HardOCP for many years I have switched both PCs to TG.

              The results are coming in slow

              User Score WU
              DavidMcLarenPS3 5166 18
              TG-5th_Melee 500 1

              PS3 is quite impressively pumping away the WUs. I am on my way to submitting my own first WU, but it takes forever. Like a couple days. So leave your machines on over night!

                This only for PS3's or can anyone join the party?

                  It was originally developed for PCs years ago. The PS3 is new to the party, but since the folding software on the PS3 is optimized for it's unique processor, and the processor is quite powerful, a single PS3 cranks through much quicker than a PC. The PC software is written to accommodate many different types of CPUs, both single core and multi-core.

                  For comparison, while my PC isn't state of the art, it's not to shabby either - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ at 2 GHz.

                    Yeah, I was just wondering if you guys wanted PC's folding on your team, or if you just wanted to keep it a PS3 "only" score.

                      I think we can all agree that having PCs help out would be a tremendous help.

                      As for the PS3, I've never turn mine off, I set the Auto-Start to 10 minutes. I have left my PS3 on for about 2 or 3 weeks straight and only turn off the controller. I keep the PS3 vertical and have had no heat related issues :)

                        My first result is in 500 points, which puts my Opteron 170 a couple days behind Melee. I hope San Diego gets a power outage so that I can pull in front of him. Norcal yeah!

                        One more thing: at http://sfbayacm.org/events/2007-06-20.php you can find a presentation on the technology.

                            I recently switched my wife's PC over to the TG team, so we'll see if you can catch up. It's pretty old, but every little bit helps.

                              I don't think we're any match for McLaren's 8 cells of fury :)

                              I see that we are slowly climbing up the rankings though. Anyways, I've converted my lab workstation (2 x Xeons @ 3GHz) which goes 24/7 over to Team-TG. Hopefully we can make a dent.

                              Cheers!
