Is SMP2 the right choice for me?

    Currently using SMP2, tbh it's working out pretty well with regards crunching WU, about 6 hours per 500,000.

    However after reading it seems that GPU folding is a lot more efficient, can I run another GPU client alongside the SMP2 client collecting points from both simultaneously or should I be switching to the V7 beta client to run both?

    def run both they run different project on the different hardware it is a little bit harder to run both at the same time but its still easy the v7 can run both at a click of a button but you can still do it the old way

    Thanks, I've just finished a new WU so I'm going to install V7, probably keep SMP2 for the other systems that don't have high end graphics cards.

    just remember that HFM.net does not currently work with V7 so monitoring those other client maybe a little bit harder
