    I got one rig that won't upload. I tried manually uploading and even restarted the client and pc but it won't upload. The other rig that got them also ran just fine.

    Yesturday I got 42 bets for HD6950 (2 of them errored) and 4 betas for HD6670 (all valid).:rockout:
    On both GPU's betas was completed in the same time - under 4 min.
    Can't see the difference:confused:

    You can see the difference in watching them run on the "Tasks" page on the BOINC manager- that calls the progress in minutes while WCG webpage does it in hours :)

    The rig is waiting on a HDD... gave it up to repair a laptop for a friend and the replacement hasn't arrived yet.

    Wait...so they take an entire CPU core as well? Shame :(
    Any idea what PPD it's producing?

    My laptop and A6 takes about 15-20 min a piece. :s

    But does give as much points as a 2-3 hour WU. :p

    My 5870 is just about finished with one. Shame since I stopped running F@H that I never thought to set WCG to use my GPU until I saw this. Ah well, I got at least 4 of them... let's hope some more roll in eh?

    I could never get them to run on my 5870 when I had it.... good to see that they are supporting it better now! :toast:

    I got 3 errors and one just completed. I think the errors stem from the fan going out and freaking the system out.

    These GPU WUs are pretty amazing, they take about 6 minutes each on my GTX460s and get ~56 points. Or about 13k PPD/GPU :eek:

    My A6-3500 would possibly do about 4500-5000 PPD with that type of GPU WU plus standard WU's.

    I think he must mean wcg points. In our regular point system it would probably be around 1500 to 2000 ppd.

    No no no.

    3,129 points yesterday quoted from FreeDC. With full GPU WU's, it could probably go to what I estimated.



    Edit: Though I'm of the opinion that GPU WU's are are a bit generous currently.

    I wonder just how common these WUs will become once the Beta finishes? Anyone want to compare PPD/Watt? My 580 finishes them in about 2min30secs but I would bet the 580 uses a lot more power than even my 2600k @ 4.3ghz.
