The SMP client shouldn't be used with that processor because it is only a single core processor and the smp client is designed for multiple cores. The benchmark machine for folding on a single-core folding client is a 2.8GHz P4 (with SSE turned off). It should produce around 110 PPD. Since your processor supports SSE and is slightly faster it should do somewhat better but still it just is not a very capable processor compared to modern chips.
Are you freakin' serious? Well, at least everything is making sense now. Sucks that I've been thinking I'm running a dual core for these past five years, haha.
Quick question: Why is it then, that when I boot up FAH, it says that it detects two cores? Just wondering.
5 years with a P4?!
