This is a nice load of them, I've been getting them consistently for over an hour and a half now
Ive gone through 75 today, with no errors according to WCG.ORG- looks like they are having success in working the bugs out.
I've gone through just over 100 so far with no errors--a big improvement.
These WUs clearly don't put nearly as high of a load on the GPUs as FAH does, my cards are so much quieter like this
They're better than the earlier ones. They only gave 70-90% utilization on my cards, these give consistently above 90%.
Yeah, these are between 90 and 95%. But IDK what's happening, on my GTX470 the card is running @ 80C/65% vs 88C/80%. I certainly prefer this
I have noticed, however, that there seems to be a considerable lead-in and lead-out time on these WUs that's CPU-only computation. The WUs will hit 99.415% and then run on the CPU only for ~30 seconds...and then they also take ~10 seconds at the beginning on the CPU alone. IDK what's happening, but it also gives the cards a bit of a cool-down break, so I'm still happy.
EDIT: And they're gone. I'm not being assigned any more on either system now
For me CPU-only time are in the minutes.
Probably 10-12 min GPU and 2-3 min CPU-only time. My laptop use more on CPU-only, but less in the GPU part.
Edit: Just did a single check, 1 min 43 sec end time and 40 sec start time for my desktop. 3 min end time and 1 min 3 sec start time for my laptop.
I got just about 80 of them today with the 7850
That's quite a lot for one card
Now if only you had the other two cards installed, that would have been pretty sweet. 10k from GPUs in 2.5hrs anyone? "D
38 here split between my 2 machines.
And seems my laptop did them in 13-15 min, while my desktop did them in 15-17 min.
I'll have at least one of them running again as soon as I finance/locate the remaining parts for my next rig
GPU WUs are running again
My desktop is just bobbing along alone. Hope it autofetch some betas. :S
Provided that you have it set to do GPU tasks, it should. Mine auto-fetched some, but I did then manually disable FAH-GPU so that they'd run better
It has to make an update within the beta timespan. If it's on long WU and just did a update, it could take a while. It did manage to miss 1 beta. :S
Also, those betas seem to be giving more and more points.
I haz 2 completed and 4 ready to go
Let's hope we get a nice run today!
Perhaps the greatest thing about these WUs is that they make the GPUs so much quieter than FAH That and the amazing PPD doesn't hurt
Now the X4 seems really loud though :shadedshu
A hyper 212+ will take care of the noise and heat on that x4 rig.
It's only crunching until Wednesday AM, then BOINC is getting uninstalled and I'm giving it to my parents. It's just crunching now because why not
And I have a Xigmatek Gaia I could put on it, but I'm saving it for the i7-920 instead.
Cool that is also a great way to test stability.
Got about 80 of them this time with the 7850
I just ran out as well
Got about 130 total across all the GPUs
11 on my laptop. None for my desktop.
Still not too bad, that's ~600 points off of the GPU
And 2,5 hours of screen lag.
Okay guys I want to try and compile a list of Gpu's that do very well with the betas. So list your gpus that you crunch on and that run them without a bunch of error ed out ones. For me I had a 5770 and my cfired 4870's that did good for awhile but that has went to crap. The 4870's stop getting them about 6 months of so ago and the last couple batches errored out on the 5770. So right this minute I have no gpu support for betas but that will change before the weekend. I am really interested as to which Nvidia gpus do a good job at them.
