GPU and SMP on Dual Core

I'm having a go of it. seems like the newer GPU projects use very little CPU cycles. decided to try it on three of my dual cores. one with an ATI 4670, the other 2 are 9800GT's. so far so good. will post up some scores earyl next week
happy folding.

Ron

It's the newer drivers as far as I can determine, not the WUs [on the nVidia cards]. After I went to the 180.xx driver, my cpu usage dropped to near zero, and I went to all 4 cores on the SMP as well.

looks like two boxes won't pull both gpu& cpu. the 2 that can will be left to fold. I may try a few things on the other two.
happy folding!
