I happened to notice someone (9898535) joined seti@home back in July of this year (7/10/13) and has a credit for processing over 4.8 million data sets while the last credit was for only 10 or so. Is this possible? If so, what kind of computer is he running?

He used many computers with many NVIDIA GPUs:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?sort=rpc_time&rev=0&show_all=1&userid=9898535

Compare to your computers:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?sort=rpc_time&rev=0&show_all=1&userid=47806

(and it is not "over 4.8 million data sets" but 'Total credit 4,829,976')


Look at this computer:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5948046

For 2.5 years it (just credit for one computer) accumulated 'Total credit 131,472,595'
