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?

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?

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?

That makes sense. I'm running GPUGRID at the same time and that steals some CPU time, which would make the MilkWay wall time a bit longer I suppose. Reversing the logic, if MilkWay used some GPU time and included it with CPU time, the wall time would be shorter?

I suppose as long as I'm getting bonuses... I should try to figure out how to get more bonuses!

Thanks for the reply!

Elapsed time in BOINC: 6:12:45 ---> 22,365sec

Task Page says: 20,045sec

Why the difference?


Claimed: 124.74 Granted: 213.76
Corrrection Factor: 1.7761
124.14 * 1.7761 = 220.49

Does the correction factor adjust the points? I thought points were points, regardless if it took 1 hour or 24 hours to do one task. I was just wondering, because 213 is really close to 220.

I guess my main question is why the two different times that are 2320 seconds apart? That's 00:38:40 difference. I'm confused...

I don't know what BOINC is doing, but this is what has been happening with me...

Why is it trying to contact the server so often? If everyone is doing this, it's no wonder there are problems. I have 24 jobs queued up which is enough for a day, and usually what it stays at. That has to be over-taxing the server... What can I do?
