Here we go, using the SMP console client on a AMD X2 4200+.
Looks like my first WU failed. :( Running the SMP client on WinXPpro 32bit, AMD X2 4200+, 2GB RAM.

Edit: I checked the F@H forums and it looks i did not have enough patience, on the next WU i will know better.
Well the 0x1 error is like the common fatal error for the beta SMP client. Caused by lots of things... We will have to go get a drink together becasue I had both WU's on my benched game box get that same error today. I was at 73% on each client. I think mine was from experimenting with how far the quad on the asus will OC. Silly me it's on the stock cooler right now until I get it into my watercooled Koolance. Right now it looks like a murder victim all layed across my work bench.. I now see why god created the computer case.
My WU was finished but i thought it was stuck because nothing happened and i ended the client via the x instead of ctrl+c. I was just not aware that it takes several minutes, next time i know better. ;)
can i do it with my xbox 360 too?

So far the PS3 is the only consol supported. It's not that anyone is playing favorites... it's just some egghead at sony figured out how to make the cell shaders on the sony crunch certain types of protiens. It's now one of the most popular way to fold since Sony decided to ship Folding @ Home on the PS3 operating system.
Folding now with my 3870, are there any statistics of how fast the different methods are compared to eachother?
For example how does a 3870GPU do against a Q6600 quadcore in SMP mode, or the same CPU with a linux client, and how do they all compared to PS3?
Would be interesting to know.
Also my brother runs a 2600XT which i saw was compatible with the new GPU client, if i install F@H on his rig can i join the team with the same name(mine)? So scores get added together.
EDIT: oh and also can you check through user profiles what kind of clients/hardware they are using? or if they use multiple sort of GPU/PS3 combos.
Welcome to the folding team! Wish I had the answers to all your questions, but my knowledge predates the GPU2 folding client. When I was folding 100% I had, 4 Q6600 quadcores (SMP x's 2), a GPU1 and a PS3 client cooking. The biggest points were comming from the quads. Back then you could be assured a 1760 point project almost every time. They ran about 2000 PPD (points per day) on average for about 4000 PPD per machine. They took about 20 to 22 hours per client to complete. Now the same machine is doing these 1920 point clients that take almost 2 days to complete per client and the PPD averages out to about 1500 PPD (3000 per machine). My PS3 averaged about 1000 PPD and my GPU1 client exactly 660 PPD since the point value was the same every day (330 points X's 2 and they took exactly 12 hours to complete). Anyway, I'm as interested as you are about what the differences are in the points with this new GPU clients, but havn't looked into it becasue I have 3 machines mathballed due to California wildfires creating a blanket of smoke that is trapping in heat like an oven. My air conditioning just isn't working strong enough to cool off a whole office of computers. You can find most of you answers here however: Folding Forum • Index page
Hi, I want to start folding with my computer but I got one question: does it affects internet speed? Since I already run a not that good version and I'm sharing it with my parents so I don't want to make us all slow in here :p If it does not give big trouble I'm willing to join this folding team :) Thanks.
