Join us in a race against our friends at [H]ard|OCP in the F@H bigadv EOL 2nd Anniversary Challenge.

Here are the links to last year's race thread in the [H] forum and the race thread at this forum.

Here's the link to this year's thread at the [H]ardForum.

Details:
1) [H] total team Folding@home points vs. the points of Team Anandtech members who sign up for the challenge.
2) The challenge starts at 12:00 UTC January 23rd (time 0 stats) and ends 12:00 UTC on January 30th.
3) Team Anandtech members must sign up for the challenge before the start date. I will not add racers once the challenge starts.
4) To clarify, there's no need for [H] members to sign up. I will take the total output of [H] on FAH during the race.

Please sign up to participate!

Me too. As Ken_g6, not that long folding coin name. Crypto is too much of a hassle, and last I heard there was no way to exchange FLDC for cash. :(

Hey, I managed to install Nvidia 430 drivers on Mint 18.2, without installing another OS. Looks like I could be good for up to 900KPPD! :)

When this starts, I’m moving my 5950 to F@H to see how well it works. I’m hoping it gives more PPD than my A10-7970K + R250X.

@Endgame124 , I'd love to know how many ppd it can achieve.
I’ll probably even install that really annoying tracking tool I used for my 1660 super testing if I can remember what it was. Some googling shows it should hit about 500k per day, so yes, it will outperform my A10 + R250X with room to spare, even if I use PBO.

Looks like the GeForce 710 would be good for another 30k points per day... yeah, I’ll pass on that.
