Folding at home SMP2 Bonus Point Calculator

Using this SMP2 Calculator will calculate what your points will be based on the project and how fast you are processing the data.

The project number can be found in the FAHlog.txt at the beginning of the work unit as well as other places. The text will be in this format or something similar, "Project: 6015 (Run 1, Clone 157, Gen 109)".

The time per frame is the length of time it takes to complete 1%. Each percentage is considered a frame.

This is calculating a project running at 100% CPU usage for
Dual Core Celeron 1.6GHz E1200

Core2 Quad 2.66GHz Q9400

Core2 Quad 2.66GHz Q9400 overclocked at 3.2GHz
Please note:
The Base Points, this is the points you would recieve without the bonus points.
The Bonus Factor, this is the Base Points multiplying factor for the total points you would recieve.
The Bonus Points, the points grow greater as the Completion Time is quicker.
Last but not least notice how even one of the slowest dual cores, the points was tripled with the SMP2 client bonus points.
When calculating bonus points, its better to have one single SMP2 client running at 100% CPU usage than to have two SMP2 clients both running at 50% CPU usage.
