I want to encourage anybody with an Intel Mac or with a dual core 64bit Linux machine to run the (Beta) SMP [email protected]
My brother's 17" iMac Core Duo (1.8gHz I think?) is screaming
along at over 1,000 points per day
. And I've now installed Ubuntu 64bit on my Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and it seems to be going at a similar pace.
There is also a GPU client that is also very fast -- it runs mainly on the newest fast ATi cards, but they may have expanded the list.
Or, if you cannot run either of these, I hope you will run one of the "regular" [email protected]
clients: the CLI is the fastest, but the GUI client is more interesting to look at. It is for an excellent cause, and I hope all of you at least consider helping out.

Good shout Neil
Makes me realise I really do need
I'm off to see what the sweetspot is for Dually 64's at the moment.
Anybody got a heads up on the current ATI cards?
P.S.Win SMP on the way!!

I completed my first SMP work unit: it was the lowest scoring unit, 587 points, and it took my machine just under 20 hours to complete, so it is now working at 700+ PPD
Here's a list of all the work projects:
Who is the other person who voted in the poll who is using the SMP client? Can you tell us about your setup, please?

The SMP client can also be made to work in WinXP by running a free virtual linux OS within XP, but apparently it runs 20% slower. As I don't have a dual core CPU I can't try this, but there's detailed instructions on how to do it HERE!
Anyone wants to try it and report back?

Do you have Ubuntu installed and running yet? If so, have you gotten the SMP client up and running?
BTW, I just returned my second SMP work unit this morning (my son had crashed it a few times trying to play 32bit games...) and it was a 1,760 pointer! Woohoo!

OK February is over, way over. Whats the scoop with GPU folding? I just purchased a Sapphire X1950GT.
I'm passing people who aren't folding like they're standing still. Hey wait a minute.......

I only know what I read about the GPU client -- have you tried it? It is supposed to be very fast -- I thought that your comment meant that you were already using it.
Here's a link to the GPU user forum.

Thanks for the link. There doesn't seem to be anybody running 3 WUs at a time with a multi processor and a good GPU. I realize one CPU needs out help out the GPU but couldn't it still do some work besides?

You could always just try it -- with one or two CPU clients? The GPU client is much faster than the Windows CPU client; even faster than two of them.
