Minimum Participation Requirements For Prizes

20 Days with activity*, 500,000 Points & 40 WU

(*activity is defined as completing at least 1WU for the 24 hour period)

These must be met DURING the five weeks of the event. Points produced before the start date do not count!

 

 

Prizes!!!

(possibly more to come)

LMG Prizes?

 

If anyone would like to donate a prize then hit me up on discord or on PMs here and we will sort it out

 

 

Folding@home is a network of volunteer computers distributed around the world that aims to perform biomedical research with the single intent of helping to further understand and develop cures for a range of diseases such as; Alzheimer's, cancer, and Parkinson's. The exact research that is done is simulating the 'folding' of proteins in the body, this is important because the function of a protein id directly related to its physical shape. And this, when the protein is created in the body it needs to reshuffle its shape to get into the correct structure to perform its task. Many illnesses can be linked to faulty proteins in the body such as many cancers and neurological issues, along with a wide number of other general health concerns. This network if compared with the TOP500 list of supercomputers would outclass every single entry on the list, Folding@home has been of the fastest computing systems in the world, reaching a speed of over 2.1 petaFLOPS. 

 

If you are wondering what exactly has been done with all this computing power then you can check out the papers written by the scientists and researchers that use the folding network, I will warn you though many of them are very in depth reads and in turn this means they are often fairly technical.

https://foldingathome.org/papers-results/

 

To qualify for badges you must meet the minimum requirements for participation which for this event will be as follows minimum requirements: 500k points, 40WUs, and 20 days of activity over the course of the whole month. This is subject to change for future events as we find out what the sweet spot is to include as many people as possible but not make it too easy to just get a free badge. 

 

PASSKEYS! (they're really important)

 

Don't forget to get yourself a passkey from the link below to ensure that you hit the points requirement, the passkey is a feature that was added a while ago to the Folding Client that helps to authenticate each user on the network, an added bonus of this is the fact that it allows you to qualify for QRB(Quick Return Bonus) Points, QRBs are extra points you earn for submitting work units more quickly, such as if you have faster hardware or let the client fold full time, rather than on idle. QRB credit is awarded after 10 WUs have been submitted. You can get your passkey from the link below.

https://apps.foldingathome.org/getpasskey

 

RULES

Please remember that this is the first event that will be governed by the new rules, these rules were first discussed at the end of last folding month and will be in effect for the duration of the event.

 

Failing to meet the minimum requirements.

 

Publicly discussing the administration of the event;
If you have an issue with the way in which the event is being conducted please reach out to an appropriate member of the event team.

 

Signing up to the event with a folding identity that is believed to not be your own.

 

Signing up to the event with more than one folding identity.

 

Conducting yourself in a manner that is believed to be not in the spirit of the event, this includes but not limited to the below;
purposefully only meeting the minimum requirements, acting to undermine the integrity of the event, to attempt to cause division within the community. 

 

Breaking any one of these rules will result in a disqualification from the event. It is also important to know that there is no appeal process for disqualifications. 

 

 

 

This is just a PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always. 

 

Check your stats out here! Bare in mind it can take some time for your first WUs to appear so leave it a day or two.

I was about to say "500K points is kinda a lot for me" and then I remember I have a GTX 690 that is somewhere around 200K PPD per core?

Heck, my GTX 650 Ti BOOST is a Folding machine right now with 130K PPD somehow, and that's on PCIe 3.0 x4.

500k points total over five weeks is the same as last year, I didn't want to change it up honestly

Looking forward to it! I've got a better GPU this time, so I should be a tad more competitive.

That's about what I'd expect from a 690. My 680 is usually around 230K.

Also remember some people don't use GPU's. CPU WU's are worth significantly less points, and there isn't really a good way to differentiate "GPU points" and "CPU points"

I'm excited! Just curious, do the WUs folded need to be towards LTT's F@H team, or can they be towards any team?

 

Edit: Thanks for the info! I've built a dedicated rig to fold for the LTT team out of spare parts and my otherwise-disused 1660 Ti.

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

Some people (eg. me) don't really have a compatible GPU. Hopefully iGPU support will be fully implmented soon (it's in beta iirc).

But 500k should be fine over 5 weeks (right?)

I'm curious to see how my RX6700XT will stack up to last years GTX1080.

Tho I'm not sure how much time I can invest, cause New World requires a lot of attention right now 🥰

Definitely. Assuming your CPU gets 20k ppd to be conservative, in 33 days you'd earn 660k points. so very doable.

As noted by Red, points must be awarded towards team 223518 (LTT's Team). If you are folding for another team or nobody currently, you can elect to do so up until the deadline, and switch when the event starts.

Thanks for letting me know! I just finished jury-rigging a second rig containing my previous graphics card specifically for this event. It's a hidden office desk cabinet PC consisting of a Q6600 and my 1660 Ti, with only the 1660 Ti folding. The ventilation is inferior to any sane enclosure, but adequate--GPU temperatures peak at 70 under load. I'll write more about it when I have time.

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

just got my 6700XT in, assuming the GF wants the room warm time to fold. wish I could fit in the RX 580 but no luck. no point trying to build a folding system with a 970, 770, and 660ti.
Now if only I could get some A100 or V100 time from work.

that's 223518. and 4.3 is pretty sick tbh!

Lol 4.3 is pathetic, though i think my chip is slightly above average with the volts it can run

 

If i had better cooling i would have just shoved the volt to like 1.7 or 1.75 and see how high i can clock it (2v deathzone so 1.7v doesnt concern me unless if temps are exceeding 75c) but at that point the mb would be limiting me since these p5qs suck ass at high fsb, maybe i can score a broken ep45 for cheap or a p5b and flash to a commando, next limit would be ram since its only stable up to ~1150mhz so i think ill have to make a tec cooler for it

Yea but these things do 4ghz easy on stock volt (atleast the e0 stepping) and comparing 4ghz on stock volt to 4.3ghz 1.34v is pretty pathetic

 

Basically the list of bottlenecks from first to last now is cooling - mb - ram
