Are these new tasks longer? They are now taking 6 hours to crunch... It seems this happened at the exact time I decided to change my memory timings, so I switched them back becauase I thought I slowed my computer down. I'm guessing I can change my memory timings back?

I went from 5-7-7-20-32 to 5-5-5-15-22

That should help me crunch more, right?

The new WU's are roughly 4 times as long to crunch and give you 4x the old fixed credit per WU. Seems reasonable as a way to keep traffic off the server.

This is with CPU crunching, I don't have GPU's that are worthy... :(

then could increase the deadline report date please.

The new WU are running most of the time in high priority mode...

thanks

Thanks... I think my GPUs are worthy? 9800GX2?
But I'm using them for GPUGRID. They reack up a lot of points per day there. Somewhere between 13-18k points. Depends on if it reports 3 or 4 WU that day. They take about 15+ hours to complete, running 82/83decC. I get about 5500-6200 points per day... I if I used them for MilkWay, what kind of points can I expect? Or do I just have to try it? lol

That is if the 9800 GX2 can work with MilkWay?

I just looked suspended GPUGRID and attempted to get work for my GPUs. It said my card lacks the needed features... What are they? Maybe I just need to install some software drivers?

The 9800 series does not have double precision support, that is only in the 200x series if I remember correctly.
