51-card NVIDIA folding rig can crank out 265,200 points / day
A person over at the forums and their folding@home team has put together an amazing folding farm, Consisting of 51 nVidia 8800 series GPU's and 13 MSI P6N Diamond motherboards which each have 4 PCI Express slots for 4 video cards per board, based on calculations this folding Juggernaut can put out about 265,200PPD

and yes! it is a waste of energy which will probably not avail to very much...

hello doc :hello: welcome back?;)

this setup is a waste, that's for sure ;)

It's all old GPUs anyway, good use for them. A single P6N or K9A2 board plus four 9800GX2 cards would net 40,000PPD though...

Might be an insane electric bill, but certainly isn't a waste of energy. I guess you've never taken a look at the results F@H publishes regularly from all the work that gets done. ;)

I think the results hardly justify the extreme international powerdrain :)

I've never been gone, I was just backgrounding

So would it make a difference to you if the power drain was localized to several major datacenters housing mainframes and a supercomputer or two? The work needs to get done somehow. ;)

I think the results speak for itself:
