Say Goodbye to Tom's Hardware....:thumbup:
what's going on with toms hardware?
Also add to that futuremark that was taken down close to same time.
Not much is going on with tomshardware. If you look at their stats never did high folding. They do about 3.9 million a month avg(1) and guru3d team does about 4.9 million a month avg(2).
Can you imagine if all members of guru3d did 8 hours a day folding on a single gpu or CPU core. Note only 8 hours since know times are bad for money. Even at 8 hours with 1898 users would be 40 to 60 million points a month.

woop woop take that tomshardware let that be a lesson to ya don't mess with the guru3ders
sure looks like LR are making a run at us
If every team continues to fold at there current rate we will go up 22 places, (29.2 years).
But we will be over taken by another 10 teams, placing us in position 65 at best...
Hopefully things will pick up if/as the economy improves. I have been trying to accomplish small personal goals in folding while keeping the electric bill in check. Maybe I can turn my workplace into a folding farm like the guy in the news a few weeks back did with SETI. :3eyes:
hopefully my meager 95,000 points have helped...
Not losing... not gaining!
I would not say not gaining. Even after they slowed down coming at a solid pace. But the team that is coming on fast is bitGAMER + Underground Gamer which do about 2x the points. Not bad for a pirating site. And University of Kentucky Systems Labs will be history in next update (142 minutes, 9am GMT).
But the nice part at least we lasted 8 hours longer than was guessed but the site stats. But we all know this is in fun (the seeing who is getting more PPD). Folding on the other hand is for a great cause.
Come on new client >_<
hmm me thinks I'll be joining in the folding once I get my new rig running
I really look forward to the new client and its potential with ATI cards. At our current folding rate, we will settle into the mide 60's for rank eventually.
I will see if I can do some PS3 folding on the weekends to help out the fight, while keeping an eye on my electric bill. I cant leave it on during the day since it gives of too much heat in the TV cabinet with the door shut and my two year old will play with it if I leave it open while he is awake.
Totally agree the ATI GPUs under the current program are getting short changed. I believe the new Client is now being tested and Standford doing the testing at Princeton or Harvard lab. Found that about 3 weeks ago in the folding forums and forgot to bookmark it.
I wouldn't keep my hope up for the new GPU3 client. It seems ATI's implantation of OpenCL isn't fully functioning yet, so the first client will only support nVidia.
That is if they can get the client up and running at all.
There are a lot of froum members with pretty good systems that don't fold. I was one of them.
I have noticed on other pc enthusiast forums that monthly or quarterly prizes are given away in a random drawing. Seems like a good idea if you meet a minimum amount of WU's you quallify for the drawing.
Could be a nice way to bump up the Guru3D point output.
unfortunately I have had to stop folding for now as I was getting nothing but NANs or I'd come out in the morning and my screen would be a funny colour and computer would be locked up, and no it's not a heat issue the GPU never got above 57°C @ 99% and the CPU barely got to 44°C @ ~12%... its actually quite annoying as it just started to happen after running fine for a couple of weeks none stop
