Unhappy The 511 Blues

Folding can be addicting. You get all psyched up "For the Cure". For the team. For the points.

Then you're hit with a 511 WU.

Now the Nvidia guys have ATI donors (for now) whipped. They slice right through the big GPU WUs that they get, with 9K to 12K returns. ATI guys are hoping to break 4K a day, as the GPUv2 client isn't optimized fully for the latest ATI cards.

When you're folding with an ATI card and get a 511, you want to

You do so, because that 4100+ PPD you can get from a 477 and complete in a little over 2hrs is reduced to 2100 PPD with a 511, and you're stuck for over 4hrs churning this WU. Get 2 back-to-back that's 9hrs for only 1022 points. Your daily average s_i_n_k_s.

So this is the 511 Blues -- and I got one NOW!!
