Title: Grats everyone on rank 601
Post by: nixie on November 17, 2011, 11:55:12 AM
Grats everyone on Rank of 601!   ;D

I am running combination of real quad-core version 7 and virtual single-core version 6.23 crunchers all on the same computer and today out of the group of 4 virtual and 1 physical machine cruncher, 3 of 5 systems completed work units which brought me from 49 to 47.

Originally I thought that the wasted resources to run the VM's would make the folding slow down greatly, since wasted cycles should give less productivity than running a single copy of [email protected] version 7 which utilizes all the cores, but it has actually boosted my completed units and figures. Thinking that version 7 may have been created to not roast your CPU to the maximum demand capabilities and by using these 4 VM's + the physical environment, I am tapping into the power that version 7 is not utilizing by it not being a CPU hog, and I am forcing folding to be a hog to make better use of the full CPU's capabilities.

I'm kind of lost on knowing about the technical stuff you are doing with your systems, but I've been watching your points progress in the last couple of weeks and I'm impressed with the result of your efforts. Keep up the good work!  :)
