    Our GPUs are probably way more powerful than CPUs, so I guess it may allow people to do alot more folding.
    Bad thing will probably be that you won't be able to set priority the same way, and will notice a huge FPS drop... My guess.

    Wondering how this will effect running two clients on quads, and performance of dual core CPU's with the smp client. Once its out if it supports SLI my 8800 gts's will be folding as a pair as well coupled with the quad i should get some decent ppd.

    ATleast ATI GPU folding this uses 1 CPU core + 70-100% GPU.
    So u woud have only 1 core free with 2 cpu + gpu running.

    On a reasonably powerful dual core I reckon you could do SMP and GPU2 combined if you up the process priority one above the SMP core priorities with much of a slow down.

    Used to do this with the older GPU1 client on my machine.

    Broke 600k today ;)

    The unveiling of the client is set for the next week as part of the launch of Nvidia’s GT200 GPU series.

    I hope that it is true, I cant wait. I have been dreaming of a time where I can finally use my 8800GTS video cards to do some folding, if this is true next week will be a good day to Fold :)

    Woah! This made me feel all warm and fuzzy! :) Finally gonna stop downclocking my SLIed 8800GTXes when not playing anything and put them to some useful cause! Although I am also worried about the raising temps and power consumption/PSU stressing (max Quad CPU and 2xGPUs simultaneously...) at the same time...:bang:

    Not yet then, I imagine it'll be supported after the first beta client (similar to the first ATI release) - dont quote me on it though.

    So far so good here, if on vista 64bit you should look at the 177.35 drivers.

    I get 3400PPD out of it (thats 2000iteration per second on WU #5001).

    Will be testing out GPU2 and twin SMP clients now.

    Wish me luck :D
