    1? A 6450 takes on 1 WU in ~40 minutes and it has twice the amount of shaders.

    Only 1? Damn, I was hoping it would/could effectively do atleast 2 at a time.

    I guess you could try two, but with something that slow I think it wouldn't be pleasant. Given that the WU checkpointing doesn't work, there's also so much work that would then be lost when the computer was suspended or whatever. I think more than one and you'd be unhappy.

    The notebook has been running WCG 24/7 for a while now. I don't have it setup to sleep or anything as long as I don't close the notebook(which is no problem letting it sit on my desk open and crunching). So losing work because computing is suspended shouldn't be worried about.

    Even so, I'd say it's slow enough that it would best benefit from just a single WU.

    Looks like your right, almost a hour for just one GPU WU.

    That's still a good bit faster than most any CPU, but even my GTS450 took "only" 20 minutes.
