My PS3 had been churning out about 900ppd (3WU) reliably at 194 to 204 watts.
Somebody in the family turned it off for a couple of days.
Now it's back on saying it will take about 10 hours for a p3426, but it's only using 118w.
Did they throttle the system down?

Step 1: Cut off the fingers of the person that turned it off in the first place.

Step 2: Has it been running for a while to allow frametimes to stabilize? I know when I used EMIII that it's estimator for time didn't always work right until one or two whole frames were done.

Thanks for the replies.
My bad.

The fingers will be trimmed.

Somebody messed with the Kill-a-Watt and put it on volts!!
It's still at 198W.

And I hadn't looked up the value of the p3426, most of my prior proteins had been in the 280 to 300p range. These are up to 385p.

It's been running for a while.
On the 3426 it had only gone about 1%.
Now it's on a p3425 (385p) at 22% and estimating 7h 40 min.
This works out to about 1200ppd, the p3426 had worked out to 939.7ppd.

And note for other PS3 abusers - The deadlines have been dropped on some PS3 proteins to as little as .9 days preferred/for some proteins - so don't play to many games!!

Is it possible, though, that you only get short deadline WUs when running in the advanced mode (or whatever the heck they call it)? If so, that would make sense.
