Mark Williams has contributed TWO BILLION points to Folding@Home!!!!! Well done friend! Well done indeed! What's it been, eleven years to get to that massive milestone? Thank you for your efforts/contribution!!!
IIRC, one CPU day was at that time a Pentium running @ 300 MHz for 24 hours ... one core running today @ 3200 MHz produces 10 hours in one hour.
If you have 4 cores, you may produce 40 days in 24 hours, one CPU-year takes approx. 10 days ... YMMV ...
That does not take into account the different maths enhancements (SSE of different flavors and AVX), which increase production even more.
Let's see... My 14 days OpenZika sprint landed me at 6 years 75 days (323.6 weeks) Total Run Time. My Xeon boxes (28 cores per box; E5 v4 @ 3.2 GHz) each contributed 37.3 % of the credits of this sprint. So the set of machines that I used in the sprint is equivalent to 75 Xeon cores. Hence, 75 cores x 2 real weeks = 150 total real weeks have been credited as ~320 weeks. IOW my Xeon cores happen to be 320/150 = 2.1 times as fast as WCG's current standard core.
Congrats TennesseeTony to 20 years runtime for OpenZika! After my exhausting and expensive WCG sprint, and seeing how credits trickle in during a somewhat more normal daily DC routine now, I guess I have a picture of the effort that led to this 20 years milestone.
400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 in Folding@Home. Ah drats, you busted me, a few too many zero's: 400M it is. I may try to get some GPU Grid tasks now, until next December, or nothing at all (at least GPU related, except MW): The IRS gave me a present I can't refuse from way back in 2014, and the remodel is eating all my other $$$.
