Dam my rigs missed this. Have a 6990 and and a 6950.
I got it running again and updated. no beta's but I have 18 help conquer cancers out of 21 projects lol.
Strange those two 69xx's of yours should have jumped all over these :shadedshu
Got through 48 of them today All the Nvidia units came back as Valid, but the 75% of the AMD units came back as either invalid or inconclusive :? Norton, can you check your results status @ WCG.org and see if any of your results show the same?
I got 23 of them all together. Most came back invalid but they still get credit. Invalid results may be the caused by the work unit and not the GPU???
Maybe he should send them 6 series here and take my cfed 4870's LOL. They seem to latch on one here and there. Just don't separate them because they won't do squat on betas. I had them seperated the other night but just couldn't leave them apart. So I grabed the spare 3650 I forgot about and jammed it into the new machine.
Its been a while, anyone getting any more of these WUs since the last batch?
I've only ever gotten 2 betas, and they didn't go to my machine I have set to use the GPU with. Maybe a GeForce 8100 isn't enough to run these, I never get them.
I haven't seen them in awhile either? Will check the forums on WCG tonight....
A fresh batch of GPU Beta's are running... get em' while you can
Is there any way I can only have one or two of my crunchers do these? I looked on WCG and I only see an option to turn them on/off globally, which won't work for me because I fold on my GPUs.
You can shut down "use GPU" in the BOINC manager
Under "Activity" select "Use GPU Never" and/or uncheck the GPU button in the preferences menu
You can also create a profile in WCG that your folders run on and opt out of GPU on that profile
Thanks! I forgot about the Activity menu. I think I'll put my GT240 and my laptop's 5650M on these since I am using all my Fermi GPUs for F@H and these beta units aren't distributed regularly. Going to increase my WU cache on all my machines as well so I don't get left in the dark when the servers go out or something else tries to shut down my router on a weekend.
Got me a chunk of them this time.
Also don't ask how I got 5 projects running on a 4 core system as I do not know myself.
None for me, how sad
On the GPU Beta's it runs 1 project per GPU (doesn't rely on CPU just borrows a bit of 1 core)... mjkmike was running 2 at a time with his 6990
Now they are coming in
Yeah but none of the projects running in that screen shot are betas.
One of those 5 must have been paused at "waiting to run" there were 4 beta's at the bottom of that shot though...
Or an entire core if your CPU sucks.
Actually got quite similar results from my desktop and my laptop. GPU betas took about 75% of 1 core at 2,1 GHz on my Llano, and 100% of 1 core on my 1,5 GHz N830.
I relooked at that system and you are correct. There was one paused for some odd reason.
Will these run on a nV GTS450?
Yes, they run on AMD and Nvidia cards. You just need to opt in to Beta WUs from the WCG.ORG website (under My Projects) then under Preferences in the BOINC Manager select use GPU Always (or according to preferences if thats how you normally roll).
If you have more than one GPU you should add the following line to your BOINC Local Configuration file:
After you select 'Read Local Config' in the event viewer you will see something like "Use all coprocessors" if you did it right.
I just got 4 betas per card.
Same here but they are running a little differently today compared to last time? [/confused]
