Mostly the same, but less.
1. Still have two machines with i7 3770k CPUs and dual GTX-680 GPUs, worth ~200kPPD each (build specs etc. were posted earlier this year). Third machine has been parted out, though I still have the GPUs.
2. Also still have six SGI/Rackable servers with dual L5420 Xeon CPUs (8 cores), they range 18-25kPPD depending on WU. They take ~180W at full load, so still worth running.
3. Late this summer I got a pair of Penguin Computing HPC nodes with L5472 Xeon CPUs. They get ~30-35kPPD, but take 400W so they only run if I need the heat.
All of the above are running Slackware 14, with modified kernels. Not all of those run all of the time, only if it gets really cold.
