We love our community!
EVGA is constantly striving to give back to the community that gives so much to Folding@Home research. To date we have awarded thousands of dollars worth of EVGA hardware to the cause, only to see that hardware be used for more folding! Return here regularly for updates and new promotions as they happen.
Earn EVGA Bucks For Folding with EVGA!
Our most successful promotion ever continues into our 10th Year! We are proud to see the EVGA bucks given out go to more folding hardware. Due to hardware advancements and increased efficiency, the point system will be increasing this year. The first monthly milestone is 2,000,000 points (approx. 66,000 PPD), and the 2nd milestone is 4,000,000 points (approx. 133,000 PPD). Each will net 5 EVGA bucks for a total possible of 10 per month.
How it works:
You can earn up to 120 EVGA bucks if you earn a minimum of 4,000,000 points per month, or up to 60 EVGA bucks if you earn a minimum of 2,000,000 points per month. During the Year 10 promotion, you can earn anything from 5-120 EVGA bucks depending on your Folding@Home output. At midnight of the first day of every month we will take a capture of your points. Your count will then reset the following month so you will need to earn 2,000,000 or 4,000,000 more points that month to get more EVGA bucks. For each milestone, you will need to check in on the My Folding page to request your EVGA Bucks. To check your current 'folding year' point totals, check your My Folding page.

EVGA Bucks may only be used to purchase products in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada, and select European countries.

Each month, EVGA will have two goals for participants to reach. The first goal is 2,000,000 in points, which is equal to 5 EVGA Bucks. The second goal is 4,000,000 in points, which will equal an additional 5 EVGA Bucks for a total of 10 EVGA Bucks per month.

Note: The Folding@Home utility is well-known to users of the utility, including associated hardware and software necessary to effectively run the utility, to force a PC to run at full-load for best results, although the utility (or associated utilities) may be used to configure the system to run below full-load. Using Folding@Home utilities will generally raise the power usage of your system and will very likely increase your monthly utility power bill. Additionally, due to the high load generally placed on a system through the Folding@Home utility or associated utilities, it’s possible that hardware may fail during your participation in Folding@Home or EVGA’s Folding@Home promotion. By choosing to participate in Folding@Home and EVGA’s optional Folding@Home promotion you agree and accept that your participation may incur additional costs due to an increase in power usage and/or hardware or software failure. By participating, you also agree to absolve EVGA of responsibility for any additional costs or damage incurred by use of the Folding@Home utility or any associated utility or similar utilities, including, but not limited to, an increased utility bill relative to Folding@Home usage, damaged hardware, corrupted software, loss of time and wages.
