So is Folding...
the main DC project being supported by the TIMO team?
I haven't ran any DC in a loooong time.
I just have a PC (24/7 at home) and I guess the PS3 does run Folding also...boo!

Yep it's the current TIMO dc project. FAD and other dc projects are still being supported by TIMO members but on different teams. So if you want to have that cruncher at home crunching for TIMO while your away F@H is it.
PS3 does produce lots of points in a short time period. Come on in, grab a beer. Pop your feet on the chair and enjoy.

F@H is our main focus, We no longer support FAD. FAD died.

I'll see what I can do to help.
It seems these molecules are big! (or my PC underpowered! hehehehe ;-))boo!

And we sure could use all the help we can get.
The PS3 is a nice cruncher. It does produce quite a bit of points.
Also, if your running a mutlicore CPU, they have clients that will take advantage of all the cores.
Come join the team. We may not be the best and fastest, but us crunchers know how to have a good time, and we entertain ourself nicely.

Karma I'm shocked! You didn't mention the Graphics card client.

crunch! why I never,
ok maybe just a little,
I heard their going to ban crunching indoors,
seems people think us crunchers are causing some kind of problem when we get in a group,
so they think we should crunch out doors only,
and please not in front of the kids or KK, he gets these strange idea's when he hears crunching,
shhhh, he still thinks it's in his head,i'm folding for techimo!! what are you doing?

Yep.. Right now they are only supporting ATI cards. But, next week they're gonna release a new client for Nvidia cards. But, the support starts at the G80 core based cards, and goes from there.
Also, you have to have one core open just to utilize the GPU client. You can't max out all cores then run GPU2 on top of that. It's one or the other.

I guess it makes sense though, these GPUs are getting faster every time...
and w00t, just submitted my first WU.
Talk to you guys later.boo!

ah shit, had a power outage wipe my router a bit ago and I forgot to turn the quaddie back on in the excitement.

that's pretty amazing, my 8800gts will put out more points than my q6600 running smp. I wonder if quatro cards are supported.

As noted by Karma, if the nVidia card has a G80 or later core, it will probably be supported by the upcoming GPU client offering nVidia CUDA support.

I don't know what the quadros use, I guess I could look it up. Our work computer has a low end one, FX520 or something like that. I probably won't bother trying to run it that way from the work comp.

Those workstation graphics cards could help quite a bit though. Some $1000 cards can beat tri-SLIed 8800 ultras in 3D tests and in raw processing power. They are built for things like this so i wouldn't be amazed if even a low end card like that could be a beast.

Actually, nVidia Quadro models are derived from GeForce GPU chipsets, generally with similar performance characteristics between cross-correlated models from each product family. The primary difference is the Quadro driver set, which includes features and optimizations tailored to specific professional 3D applications.
Even the nVidia Tesla product family, which is designed specifically for general purpose GPU computing, is based on the GeForce GPU chipset architecture.

Boy you have been gone for a while
(funny I was looking at f@h a couple days ago)
