Average PPD for iMacs?

Postby Jazzaboy » Thu Jul 14, 2011 11:40 am

Currently I'm only getting a few hundred points a week, what would be the average PPD for an iMac with a 2.66Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2GB of ram?

Well, that all depends on what other CPU intensive tasks are being done alongside folding. Obviously your frame times are going to be much better (and PPD higher) if folding only is allowed unabated. :)

Well, my 2.4GHz iMac gets ~1200ppd. That is when running non-stop and getting the bonus with the passkey entered, so what you're getting with a faster CPU looks low.

Which client are you running? If you haven't got a passkey, get one from http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py and enter it in the settings (you will need to complete 10 units with >80% success before you start earning bonus - the faqs are @ http://folding.stanford.edu/English/FAQ-passkey). I thought that all Intel Mac clients ran multiprocessor by default, but check you're processor usage in activity monitor and it should be up near 200%.

Hope that helps

Right. FAH provides no uniprocessor capability for Intel-based Macs.

Alright, thanks guys. :)

Now, another question, when ever I try to open up the new v7 client it says 'This application has unexpectedly quit', is there a reason why it's doing that?

Hi,

I'm not a v7 expert, but looking at the bug tracker gives the following as a possibility:
OS-X Client does not run on pre 10.6 OS https://fah-web.stanford.edu/projects/FAHClient/ticket/572

If you're not running Snow Leopard then that might explain it, if not, sorry I don't know!
