Whilst they are loosely correlated to the number of WUs processed, the score doesn;t seem to be fully dependant on the # of WUs.

So, how is the score calculated ?

Each wu is worth a different ammount.

In the picture, I circled something in yellow, you go to this site: http://folding.stanford.edu/psummary.html and match it up and it will tell you how much it's worth.

For example my current wu is worth 53.3 points.

So are they based on estimated CPU expense ?

um .. clicking on the job# doesn't do anything.

You see how I circled in yellow, p340?

Well you go to the project summmary site (http://folding.stanford.edu/psummary.html) and then you look along the left side and look for 340.

This is what comes up:
340--Project
12235--Number of Atoms
18.00--Deadline (in days)
53.30--Credit
100--Frames

But it's not like you can choose to just do the ones that are worth 70. and if you could then that's all people would do (or am i missing something?)

Nah it's basically the luck of the draw.

Eventually once you start producing a lot of wu's you just keep recycling the like 40 that there are.

Points are directly correlated to how long it takes to process.
A 70 point WU will take 5 times as long as a 14 point WU.

They are benchmarked on Celeron 500, full details including equation are on the official site.

So processing smaller WUs will give same points in total .. but show up as more WUs .. which debatably looks better, but they are equal really.

Future releases are planned to take CPU speed into account when DLing WUs.

My first few WUs were all small, but at current they are all quite big.
