Yep. In the next two months it looks like we'll be going up one more, but down another five.

To contribute to our fall down the ladder: in the meantime I'm taking an indefinite break. Save some of my GPU fan rotations as it looks like I'll need to be using it for about two years longer than anticipated.

Sorry to hear this Crawdaddy79 but I understand as I also had to stop 6 months ago but the impact on the team was much less since I only have crappy hardware.

My impact is less than before as well. I don't know why but I almost completely stopped getting the 1.5M PPD WUs, but it was still normal to get 1.2M PPD WUs - nevermind the 1.8M unicorns that sometimes came my way.

When I quit it was after getting three days' worth of (mostly) sub-750k PPD WUs. Because of the CUDA optimizations, nVidia folders are much more efficient, and at that point I felt like I was burning through my PC's lifecycle for not a good enough reason. Here's to hoping for a GPU oversupply and a massive price drop on hardware. :cheers:

I also stopped last month since I moved and no longer need too heat my bedroom with my computer. Also electricity was included in my rent at the last place much to my landlords dismay and I don't really want to pay the electric bill for folding.

Side note: In the last 2 months that I was folding I got 149,790,656 points which is about 1/3rd my point total from the last 15 years.

I myself will have to cut back starting next week as the hydro rates go back up.

Looks like I'm in my mid-life crisis. I got tired of using APUs and convinced my wife to let me get a cheap Ryzen 5 3600 coupled with a GTX 1660 Super even if I don't really need it. I'll use it as a home server and to fold.
It appears to be good for 1M PPD, 10x to 12x what my Ryzen 2400g was producing.

I ran across a nice FAH site today bookmarked it in case I get the itch to upgrade like luxor. In addition to the real time stats for quite a few cpus and gpus a very nice listing of the research projects. https://folding.lar.systems/

I did use this site to get an idea of what to expect before I did my upgrade. Turns out that it was pretty much bang on.

I just realized that it took me 14 days to get more points than what I had accumulated in did in the 10 years of active folding I have done since 2003. And if I had the latest and greatest hardware, it would have taken just 2 to days!

Kinda amazing what the changes to the code have done. Back when I started it was all about folding on the Athlon & Duron cpu's...we've come a long way
