I guess I need new glasses, I would swear the 1st post in this thread says wu should be paying 3607 now but in reality they are paying 3507. I guess I'm just not seeing one of the numbers correctly. Yes, this is sarcasm!

The only one that comes out ahead in this is the Project ...

Actually Steve I don't think the project ultimately wins in this case. 14 months ago ATIs were the way to go if you wanted the bigger credits. With the advent of the PG app coming online there has been a tremendous shift from ATI to Nvidia. Following one of the large team's forums it is quite obvious that almost no one buys a new ATI card.

So by cutting the credits in half it makes the ATIs look more attractive because a 6970 will produce the same credits (or more) on Moo and additionally there are MW, Collatz, and DNETC that will still pay well.

So the bottom line, less reason to buy a Cuda means less new cudas for the project. Why should I spend $350 for a cuda card that will pay well only on 1 project when I can get an ATI that will run more projects that pay very well. Oh BTW, the ATI will run this one too if I get desperate.

On current credit rating I average 72x4523 around 325k/330k ppd

The new lowest credit rating 72x3607 so around 255k/265k ppd

That is a massive drop 70k or so ppd

My cards will be working the same hours, my electric will be costing the same, but I will be 70k down everyday.

This is what will be the final credit will be or will a new credit scheme come into force when the final move over has occurred ?

I'm afraid you didn't read the 1st post close enough. Over the next 12 weeks the credits will be CUT IN HALF !
