With 24 threads, you've got to go Linux here for the best ppd with Bigadv WUs and the QRB...

I was wondering that... I figured windows SMP would be the way to go. Pure NIX? Or nix on a VM/VM(s). I assume they have distro's made just for folding no?

No SR-2 BTW

let's see what these bad boys can do
some units under Windows SMP will produce 116 k PPD @ 3.0 GHz but most of the time you will get 60 k PPD. For comparison, my GTS 450 is getting 40k PPD on the 8057WU!

Nice, I'd say go with linux as well. Ubuntu works well either in a vm or native

going Linux is nice for [email protected] but you loose all the functionality Windows offers. Me I wanted to keep my dual Xeon setup for an every day machine but if you can spare it and want max PPD you need to go native Linux install. I would suggest Ubuntu 10 or 11 versions, and choose to install [email protected] on the method with the terminal, that is what worked best for me.
