    4K on a GTX 480/G3258

Right now I think I want to start folding on my Chromebook. It's ARM based (Exynos 3 I think), and I'm on the Beta channel right now.

You will probably have to jump over to Chrubuntu to do it.


SJWs really love complaining about NVIDIA's GTX 970 debacle while they have R9 290Xes or GTX 780s or the sort. I've got a GTX 970, I'm actually telling it like it is, and it is a great card. Why am I still able to play GTA V at Ultra 1080p/High 1440p? Why did it take reviewers and owners nearly three months to notice? Maybe because it's not a big deal for most use cases. Maybe because it doesn't make it bad. It's funny to see the pro-AMD (and even pro-NVIDIA) agendas people are pushing around here. The code is cracked, the notion is broken.

I think there was a way though (like some URL I had to go to and enable some things in the Flags).

If there is, I am unsure. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

I should probably summon @Whaler_99 for this.

You're fine. :D

Can't you use the Chrome web app?

 

I would assume it'd work with Google's own OS :P

I doubt it will give much PPD, really not worth it imo.

I didn't even know there was one.

Every little bit helps. Right now my grandma's A6 has all of the weight on it's shoulders, and I need some more power. Can't wait for spring break. Hopefully my new heatsink will arrive and I can set Vengeance free again, to fold 24/7.

This is the official Chrome App for it https://chrome.googl...obnofo?hl=en-US

If the Chrome App doesn't work, and I don't think it will, the Folding App certainly won't - they don't support that CPU. Must be Intel or AMD general use x86/x64 CPU's, not the lower end ones.

I did manage to get the App running, but I don't think it's going to work either because of that, or because I'm at school.

Okay, Mr. Smartypants. They'll give me in school suspension, charge me $250 for a $150 craptop, and take it away.

It appears that it is working, and right now it's working on project 2981.
