My System Specs

Default Getting partial credit for WUs

Hey folders I experienced a rather weird happening yesterday, well actually two strange things. First off my GPU client hung at around 40% for about 3hrs meanwhile my F@H CPU client kept chugging away and was at about 50%. I shut down both clients and rebooted and when I restarted them both the log file said completed and thanks for contributing to F @ H ...strange. I thought wow that sucks I lost out on points because they both seemed to crap out but later I noticed I received partial points for both of the work that the clients had accomplished.

Secondly I've been getting these god awefully slow GPU jobs where it takes about 30-40% longer to complete and I'm wondering wth is up with those? Now my 4850 isn't a folding superstar at only 3200ppd but yesterday I only did 2000 and I know when I don't use my machine for gaming my CPU and GPU combined can get around 3450ppd. Anyone experiencing these wierd things?

It is strange that your CPU client didn't restart from the latest checkpoint, mine always have. They have been giving partial credit for some time now, I think it was in response to all the EUE's folders were getting not too long ago...
Those slow GPU jobs you have been getting are the new, larger 5748 WU's [at least for Nvidia clients] and everybody has gotten them... and they suck bigtime...

Ahh I see now LCB001 thanks for the info. Yeah those new WUs suck bad, they're throwing my average all out of wack heh. I also get these stinker CPU WUs that take like 16+ hours to complete and only give like 170 odd points for and yet other times I get these really cherry ones that give in excess of 700 points for a 20 hour job...go figure

On those WU's my GTX+'s get ~4358 PPD instead of the ~6083 on the regular ones. They used to get 6643+ PPD but the new 1.19 core messed that up also, all together my total PPD for the three cards has dropped ~1800 PPD just from the core change, if all of them get the WU's I'm down almost 6000 PPD...
If you had a Quad you could run the SMP CPU client with the GPU. I run the SMP on my Q9550 alongside the 2 GPU clients. The regular SMP is worth 1920 pts and takes around 25 hrs [~1860 PPD], the cherry ones are worth 1760 pts but only take about 15+ hrs [~2780 PPd]. Lately the SMP client has been more stable than the GPU client, haven't had an EUE in at least a month...
