Not exactly sure we should even call this a competition. More like a slaughter. It should be more like TPU vs everyone else! At any rate, if we maintain the current level of production, we should be able to clinch a top 5 finish.

4 would be for 4 parallel work units in the GPU (actually 2 in each, serial)
.25 is for 4 work units for the first GPU
.5 doubles the number of cores/threads available because sometimes you can run more work units than the processor has threads. Look for "Computational errors" and that will tell you if you have to many units running.
Computational errors will be seen under "show all tasks"

I know it was app_something.

Yesterday was our best showing @ 662,696 Ukraine pulled 645,936

In less than a week if the new video card works and all the components work I'll add a i7 3770K and 7950 doing hcc that should get 100,000+ points a day.

Sitting at a solid #3. #2 is still out of reach at current level of production. The difference is 2,210,038.

It looks like we are closing a little on #2 (as of 2/26/13 23:59:59):

1 TechPowerUp! 626,658,060
2 Ukraine 77,971,558
3 TeAm AnandTech 76,663,034

Roughly 1.3 million points behind, where I think we were trailing by as much as 3 million not too long ago.

For the past 2 days we have only been making 186,000 PPD a difference of 32,000 less points than Ukraine a day to tie. We need 132,000 because I have to RMA a video card today that has been giving maybe 100,000 points max.
