Processor Performance Database for Folding@Home PPD (points-per-day)
About Folding@Home: Folding@Home uses home computers connected to the Internet to help Stanford University research diseases.
Points-per-day: PPD is a number that relates to how fast a processor can fold proteins. A greater PPD figure can be had if using a passkey. Get a passkey to unlock a greater PPD number.
Time-per-frame: TPF is the number of minutes and seconds that it takes to complete 1% of a total work unit (WU).
Use this database to help choose an affordable folding processor with good performance per watt or per a currency. Click on the name of the processor to highlight that row.
SEARCHING THE DATABASE: Use the AND keyword to combine search phrases. For example to combine the searches "QUADRO" and "R9" enter "QUADRO AND R9". To isolate a processor in the search results, enter its name exactly as it is in the table. For example, "NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 1030" will only show this processor.
Click on a column heading to sort by it and then click again to reverse the sort order.
"ENERGY COST" calculates the electrical cost of running a folding computer. "WU TIME" calculates the total time of a work unit.
The Add Processor Form will add processors to the database. It is useful to know the TPF and Project number to automatically fill out the PPD and comments section. Additional comments to add are Linux or Windows, and CUDA or OpenCL, if known. A good place to look up GPU Wattage is techpowerup.com. Just look for the TDP value.
