I can't wait for the desktop version of that to hit. With that said, is it days or weeks ahead? Or are there plans for one in the first place?
The new GPU client is a SysTray client, similar to the new v6.x CPU SysTray clients, and follows a standardized Windows installation procedure. This new client type is similar in nature to the previous GUI style client, but with notable changes, and a separate visualizations module (to come later).

Unfortunately, there's no reason to anyone in Stanford to care about PPD/watt. They care about PPD/science. And they are right.

Scientifically, the new client introduces several new advances...
Initially, this new client will be a SysTray style client only. A console version may follow later.
Have you taken a look at the TFLOPs generated by the GPU cleint, compared to how many clients it has, vs the SMP client, compared to how many clients it has?
The GPU client is much better for the Science, it's a damn shame I'm going to shut it down after a few WU's tonight because it's not worth the 500ppd drop in production to have to keep the machine running Windows all day. I'd much rather run Linux and keep it folding along at 1,500ppd.
