Now that sounds like a challenge.

Based on the EOC scoreboard, the bait has been taken. It may hurt my pride, but it still helps our team.  Trollestia

I suppose since I've been running the program for a week, I should probably join the competition, too. So, my name is Framwinkle, both for folding, and on the forum. Count me in.

We were quite good at keeping the pace, but AnandTech is yet at it again, increasing their lead.

EDIT: While looking at the competition thread on the AnandTech forum, someone mentioned something that might apply to some of our teammates too: Does everyone have a passkey?

Passkey is extremely important... makes up 60-80% of the points... depending on various things

I think it might affect more powerful video cards more since they get the WUs done faster... those are about 80%... so you only get about a 1/5 of the points if you don't use a passkey... so instead of say a million PPD you'll only get ~200,000

Okay, I'm horrible at explaining things

Tekzilla has actually increased their production. I dont know what a Tekzilla is Derpyderp2 . The only information I could gleem off the internet was a podcast from 2014, but who ever they are , They have noticed that we are on their tail and are about to drag them down. Flutterrage

If you don't have a passkey in the marked areas than you only getting about 20% of what you could get.

According to the Extreme overclocking site, we are over 10% active  Raritystarry  . I know that might not seem that awesome, but it is, only 6 or 7 other teams over 100 members on the board can boast that and Anandtech isnt one of them Twilightsmile

So...apparently miners have completely taken over the GPU market and 1080ti's are going for $1400 on amazon and newegg. If any of you guys would be interested in GPU's 1060 and up I can grab some for work for actual MSRP (or under, in a lot of cases with evga and asus). I don't mind helping other people out in the name of science. We also have the 1080 ti Strix AC holo backplated card that I super want but can't actually justify :P

so like, straw buying for people here and shipping it to them? they pay, you buy and stick in a rig where you are? how would this work? might be interested.

Supply and demand. It sucks, but that's the way the game works. It's like when a new high-end card is released. People buy them up, and there's no stock available, but you'll see them on eBay for twice the price.
