Re: [F@H] Folding@Home Hardware Specs

My home PC is currently powered by an Intel Core2Duo 6300 @ 1.8 GHz with 8GB of memory and a Nvidia Quattrp NVS 285 (not supported by F@H). I was also running F@H on a PS3 until support for that platform was terminated

My other home PC is an Athlon X2 4200 with 2GB of memory running R@H.

Much of the points in both R@H and F@H aren't from the systems above or their predecessors but from burn-in testing when we deploy new servers at work. Those tend to be for the most part Supermicro servers with a pair of Quad-Core AMD Opteron HE (energy efficient) cpus and plenty of memory.

It's too bad they quit support for the PS3, but apparently it wasn't really making much of a difference anymore compared to modern day GPUs and CPUs. I used to have my PS3 fold 24x7 when it was allowed. Had a laptop cooling fan underneath it, and it never broke a sweat.
