Total credit 1,000,136 for einstein. woooohooo!

seeing without seeing is something the blind learn to do, and seeing beyond vision can be a gift.

dunx has managed to persuade

dunx has managed to persuade his PC's to surpass 1,000,000 credits by midnight tonight !

I started on the 13th of August IIRC.

P.S. Sadly I lost my Q6600 recently, so looking for a new machine, i7-860 looks favourite...

Intel's new architecture (sandybridge) will launch next month. It's supposed to be about 20% faster per clock. I'd suggest holding off until then if possible.

If power is important to you, that may be particularly good advice. While I am very happy with my E5620, which is a Nehalem derivative called Westmere on 32nm and itself quite well behaved for power, the practical fact is that available motherboards for it were generally X58 chip set, and the one I chose is not low power at all.

For non-gamers, it appears that the SandbyBridge onboard graphics may well be good enough, which raises the power savings over that of the CPU alone.

Market positioning means that there should be reasonably priced consumer motherboards early in the life cycle. Whether those will be decently low power consuming remains to be seen but there is at least hope. I hope to use a SandyBridge in my next build--perhaps mid-summer 2011.

Yeah! That's great, that we

Yeah! That's great, that we are here for a long time and are doing together the best we can do - crunching. Happy crunching for everyone! And let your crunching dreams come true this New Year!

P.S. While we have a nice party here deep in the forest (in resourt - it is cold to party in the open air), my farm got me 22 million marks already.

Intel GPUs have been good enough for non-gaming/non-compute graphics for years. They've also been able to hardware decode most/all of the well established video codecs in the market when they launch (AMD/nVidia's discrete parts typically win this one by a year or two).
