Default F@H spreads out from CPU's

Just check this link: http://folding.stanford.edu/FAQ-PS3.html .

And F@H on GPU is now becoming reality too, there's a link in the article above. Interesting, though I'm not buying a new graca specially for it.

1 WU in 9 hours 340 points on PS3

Not bad, but sounds a little low?

More than a few SSE/SSE2 WU's will do 5 minutes a cycle, so 100 cycles makes roughly 8.5 hours. Only get them half the time, but when I do can have four units done in less than 10 hours on a QuadCore. Usually worth about 230 each though.

PS3 gets lower score/unit because of the cell nature

Quote:
It seems that the PS3 is more than 10X powerful as an average PC. Why doesn't it get 10X PPD as well?
We balance the points based on both speed and the flexibility of the client. The GPU client is still the fastest, but it is the least flexible and can only run a very, very limited set of WU's. Thus, its points are not linearly proportional to the speed increase. The PS3 takes the middle ground between GPU's (extreme speed, but at limited types of WU's) and CPU's (less speed, but more flexibility in types of WU's). We have picked the PS3 as the natural benchmark machine for PS3 calculations and set its points per day to 900 to reflect this middle ground between speed (faster than CPU, but slower than GPU) and flexibility (more flexible than GPU, less than CPU).

It's good for F@H
Give it some more processing power
