    Well these GTS 450's are not good at all for crunching. Even two could not surpass a single 5770 :/ Seems AMD has the WCG WU's on lock down.

    No, they're terrible. It took nearly twenty minutes/WU on the GTS450 I have. Even on the GTX460s it takes nearly ten minutes/WU

    Thats a lot, on the newer WUs my HD 6670 DDR3 (so it is the "Lite" HD 6670) did it in like 6-9 (mode: 8.xx) minutes. And that card is a lot lighter than a GTX 460. I am not crunching on the card though, atm.

    BTW, I am back in my dorm room again. Parents + sister failed at keeping up appearances today and went apeshit about some very silly things. I guess C-mas brought them tensions of some kind, which made them short-circuit only a few days after. So I aborted all WUs still on the tasks list of Asgard-AMD, packed and left for my dorm room this evening. When writing this, Intel-desk is crunching again since an hour or so.
    I think I will be fine though, albeit I feel a bit weirdly about it. Maybe I should continue to work on my castle in Minecraft to ease my mind a bit. Don't worry about me please. I just felt like "reporting" the fact that I shifted back to my dorm/usual cruncher.

    Edit: I realise now that this (except the first paragraph) better had been put in the more general "TPU WCG team" thread.

    Are the "BOINC combined" points used to determine milestones? If so than I hope to get 150k cobblestones in roughly a month.

    Well, I decided to run some GPU WUs again and now it is like 10-12 minutes, not 8.something.

    Have you let it settle for a bit? They usually start high and then settle at a lower time.
    ie: came back to 7 and my WUs started at like 11-12 minutes at first, but when I checked it a few hours later, they dropped down to like 8 or so minutes.

    I was talking about elapsed times as they are when a WU is finished.
    I don´t mind it though, it is still pretty fast for the little card.
