While I've yet to see much that comes close to a Mac mini 1.86 GHz running SMP cores in PPD/watt, how about some (back of envelope) calculations regarding FLOPS/watt. My quick look at the http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=osstats page tells me that the PS3s are doing about 24x more F...

Whoa, jaganath PS3s are amazing Folders but they are about the worst PPDW. You didn't read the earlier posts. From my examples: Mac mini = 19+ PPDW and PS3 = 4.3 - 5.8 PPDW

vg30et was getting 20+ PPDW from an OC'd Q6600! (and major points too)

vg30et, Thanks. I'll call NCIXUS tomorror and see what they have to say. I could turn off my 3 machines (sell 2), save 100 watts and make 1,000 more PPD by following you. :)

The OC'd Q6600 looks like a real flame thrower. May I ask what motherboard and PSU you use? I'm leaning towards an ASUS P5B Deluxe and a Seasonic S12 550. When ordering a Q6600 or a Xeon 3220, how do you know that you'll get the G0 and not the B3 step spec cpu? I've been looking at Newegg and NCIXUS...

The Mac mini was a refurb direct from Apple $699. Was suposed to have 512 MB RAM, came with 2 GB. Nice, but the Gromacs-SMP does not use the extra RAM. I run it headless and keyboardless 24/7 since March, just plug it in for updates and password entry. Monitored via ssh and qd-tools from other compu...

Mac mini 1.83 GHz: 693.75 PPD @ 35 watts, 693.75/35= 19.82 Currently doing 1523 point 2609s. iMac 2.16 GHz: 1125.22 PPD @ 65 watts, 1125.22/65= 17.31 Currently doing 1385 point 2608s. Both Macs do much better ratios with 1760 WUs. PPD from qd-tools, watts from Kill-A-Watt. PS3 does ~ 3 WU/day rangin...
