Hence exactly why it should be discontinued. It doesn't compare to modern hardware. I can run F@H on a Pentium 4 and suck 150 watts out of the wall, but at best it would get the same PPD as the PS3.

Comparing the PS3 to an E6700, a cheap dual core, no HT chip that hit the market before the PS3 arrived. PPD results I've googled up fall around the 2,200 PPD mark in Linux.

Are you sure it was 4,000 PPD? I am basing my facts off what I could google up, but there is no single reference table for hardwarePPD anymore. If you remember getting 4K then I'll take your word on it. All the reference threads & sites I knew about no longer exist or were only for bigadv projects.

4K Is a lot better than 1K though, regardless. 4K would allow it to at least beat the first generation of Conroe-based dual-core chips from 2006.

I just remember it being a lot more than 1K, and 4K seemed familiar. I almost feel like booting it up just to check, but I assume there wouldn't even be a workload for it.

There might be. As long as they have projects left ready to go they'd be sending them.
