Re: [Help] Version 7 Doesn't Install Properly

Not to derail the thread, but as an aside, is anyone seeing a performance increase with this version over the initial 7.1.52 client? I've been noticing a slight decrease in my performance and am curious if it's a product of newer wu's being tailored more for the current version.

From what I have read on the Folding@Home forum and various other team fora you may realize better performance with the newer client. This is especially true for GPU folding but newer CPU cores are optimized as well.

Once again, I have no first hand comparison since I've only used 7.3.6 after my extended vacations from folding.

That's somewhat complicated, especially if you are getting different WUs.

Of course it is more impossible for me since I seldom look at production rate, particularly for me. I just try to make sure they are folding.

I'm curious, are you folding on cpu, gpu or both?

Oh well! I had to remove the GPU client as video for movies just won't work. It's choppy, start and go.

I'm pretty sure that if you set the 'folding power' at medium or below, the GPU client bows out unless your system is idle ...

On the folding status view, what value do you see next to cpu?
