    Primegrid cheater?

    I looked at the top computers on primegrid and the first one on the list that wasn't anonymous is this guy

    https://www.primegrid.com/hosts_user.php?userid=914937

    they run PSP (MT) and looks like 10 threads per. No GPU apps, or GPU listed. It says it is a Core2 Q9400. it makes like 5 million a day.





    seems like the old gaming benchmark trick?

    Not a cheater. It is a front end to a farm that he owns.

    Yep. The one does all the talking/fetching with the project, then distributes the tasks to a farm not directly connected to the internet.
