Oh, and more on-topic, I've enabled most of the WCG sub-projects, including the GPU setting, on my main rig, so it's crunching more than one WCG WU at one time now, so I should see my WCG output rise (and my correlizer and PrimeGrid output decrease).

Edit: Hmm, one of the "GO Fight Against Malaria 6.11" WUs is showing 7200.000% completion.
Edit: Nevermind, it disappeared.

Edit: After signing up for multiple WCG sub-projects, and running that TThrottle program, now my computer won't put the monitor in sleep anymore.

I've gone to power options to set the options, and change the time-out for the monitor sleep, but it apparently doesn't work anymore.

Beta - Help Conquer Cancer GPU is now available!

I was literally staring at my BOINC screen and saw it download a beta unit on my 1055T rig. 5850 kicked in a few seconds later. Watching the progress bar, it took 4:50 to crunch. Wonder how these will perform on my Nvidia cards.

Is there an opt-in process for beta WU?

Just added to Help Conquer Cancer to my project preferences - only four days away from Emerald (1Y) in Go Fight Malaria!

Next up will be fighting cancer, I believe

Ya, make sure you have beta and GPU checked off and you're good to go.

I think there are beta HCC CPU units too. My i7 970 is crunching 2 beta units by CPU and not GPU.

EDIT: Just read that the HCC CPU work units are there to verify the GPU work units. Makes sense.

I'm away from my computer, but does anyone know if there's a way to utilize the nVIDIA card in my system and not the AMD one?

Caught this in the Messages section of the BOINC client...a research paper on how they're developing the GPU client for the HCC WUs.

Just had to shut down 2 machines (9 cores) because it is unseasonably warm in Chicago. At 03:15 it is 68*F outside and 82*F inside. My air conditioner can't keep up either.
So, the X6's and Fx8120 will stay on while the 960T and 555BE will get shut down for a bit.
My wife wasn't too happy with another electric bill above $150.

More beta work available. And more plentiful this time around.

EDIT: Just noticed that none of Nvidia cards are getting any work. Just my AMD/ATI ones. Wonder if they're beta testing just the Radeons at the moment. Anyne getting work on their Nvidia cards?

Default Have a Question about how powerful a GPU a mobile NVIDIA GeForce 410M 1gig (cuda) is?

How does a NVIDIA GeForce 410M 1gig (cuda) compare in the GPU world in my laptop? is it worth using with an i5 processor and will WCG run the other 3 threads as wu?

The way I currently have it setup is 100% use of the processors and the GPU piggybacks on one of the CPU threads. Despite being a mobile GPU, the 48 CUDA cores is decent enough that I would use it.

So have we got a picture of the relative performance of ATi Vs. nVidia cards in Help Conquer Cancer GPU yet?

I just opted in for beta WUs a little while ago and haven't yet gotten any.

edit: Had a look at the WCG beta forums -- looks like the HCC GPU beta isn't for me:

Thanks for the update. Would explain why a 4670 in one of my work machine isn't getting any WUs.

As for the actual beta, I've accumulated 9 invalids so far. Are invalids a fairly common element in betas? This is the first time I've participated in a WCG beta so I have no prior history to draw from.

Nice, thanks for posting that.

Glad I picked up that 4770!!!

I guess I'll just have to stick to other projects for that GPU.

Due to the summer like conditions in Chicago (highs in the mid 80's) the last week I had to shut down all of my rigs. Now that temps are a little better (still +10*F above normal) I can turn off the air, open the windows, and not worry about any rigs overheating, or my place becoming a sauna.
I should have all 5 rigs back and crunching by tonight. It may rain today, so I can't get them all up and running and leave the windows open while at work.

Nice! Closing on the #100 fast and those rigs will get us there faster!

Hmmm, RT, have you followed rule #14?

"Rule #14: If a member misposts*, he/she has to crunch for the "project for the week/month" for 24 hours with all cores or the equivalent, if fewer cores are used."

*A mispost is: posting in wrong forum, posting way off topic without "OT"-marking, kidnapping, postnapping or threadnapping, trying to resurrect the beer-smiley and other offences, too small for mods to react to, but big enough to elicit the frustrations of other posters (observe the plural: it has to frustrate at least three other posters).

Compute power of some cards.

" We’d counter that AMD’s Radeon 7900-series cards are, at least from a performance perspective, clearly viable alternatives in this particular workload (not to mention a lot cheaper). "

Just did my taxes today and was pleased to see that my electricity can be used as a write off because I do a lot of work from home.

Let's hope that the Chicago weather goes back to normal so I can keep all of the rigs running 24/7.

Just today we passed Sweden in the team's list and are now #101.
Only two more rungs to climb to be among the top-99!
