Default P4 is it any good?

I only have one P4 and it takes about 20 minutes per frame on project 601 proteinAnat. Is that slow?

Exclamation 20mpf=

about 33 hrs per WU, not exactly the speed king...for example my p3-1000's were taking about 37/38 hrs the XP1900 about 15/16 hrs

however, in the long run, it's all good as long as it's folding

Sence folding at home doesn't use any SSE 2 the p4's raw fpu blow's...so your 2ghz p4 is folding at the speed a 1 ghz p3 would.

Thumbs down

Try 2.2GHz, so the P4 does blow. That's what I thought.

All folding power helps, even a P4 . On my 1.33Ghz computer at work(AMD T-Bird), it takes about 12 minutes/frame for ProteinAnat. At home on a 1.75Ghz Athlon XP it takes about 8.5 minutes to do the same.

The P4 helps. It would of been better if it was an AMD XP... but the P4 does help.

I just started running FAH2 on a Dell P4 1.8Ghz. It's running 1APS at 12 minutes/frame. I forget how much time my Athlons get running 1APS.

Anyway, this one will be folding for a couple of days until I will have to remove it!

I also installed it on another 1.5Ghz Dell P4 today, it will run 24/7 unless I have to take it off Running FAH2console.exe as a scheduled task in Win2k / XP is sweet!

I didn't say it blew...It just takes about twice as long as a compairable athlon XP would.

I have two computers, a P4 2.2GHz and Celeron 850MHz, and can say there doesn't seem to be much difference in folding performance. Without SSE2 the P4 really is a slow one.
The P4 has 1GB ram and I play RTCW on it all the time so maybe that slows it down a bit.

Yeah, gaming does cause your folding to slow down quite a bit I played Diablo II for a couple of hours a week ago. Frames that normally took 5 minutes were taking over 40 minutes during that time.
