Hello AliusBU. You're correct. I haven't posted anything in here in quite some time. Nice to meet you too!
The basement is a great place to set up the folders. G-man and others had pictures posted with shelving in their basements.
All of ours was in my wife's and my bedroom that doubles as the office area. The rest of the house is full of kids.
The Q9550 has been running @ 3.4GHz 1.12v for years. On tuesday I folded one SMP unit with it while trying out the 650ti. The folding control window showed the old CPU still has about 9k ppd of potential and the 650ti at 980mhz was at 17.5k ppd. I only folded one work unit on the CPU. Using my old passkey that hasn't been used in about 2 1/2 years I received no bonus hence the one WU showing 1868 points.
The 7850 came in the mail yesterday and I shut down folding for now to run some benchmarks. Initially when I ran the FC2 benchmark @ 1680X1050, no AA, the 650ti @ 980mhz got 101.5 fps. The 7850 received 102 fps. I was perplexed. I thought that maybe the Q9550 was bottle necking the 7850. Then I cranked up the AA and the 7850 was way faster.
I ran the Unigine Heaven v4 benchmark, first with no AA, then X4 AA, then X8 AA on optimal, normal tessellation and the 7850 was way out in front of the 650ti ( and both put the old 9800GTX to shame). The 9800GTX+ SSC at 756mhz at X8 AA cranked out a whopping 5.7 fps.
I think for now I'll keep the 7850 in my main box for gaming. I really need someone to talk me into not sending the 650ti back to NEgg and fold it in another box, hint, hint.
Does anyone know when the ATi/AMD Radeon cards are supposed to be fully supported by F@H? I recall a couple years ago they were talking like it was right around the corner. Guess they weren't.
Anyways, really nice to meet you. Look forward to posting more and lurking less.
