That sounds like one of the 6040 series which have a base value of 1395pts with a bonus factor of 4.63...
It's probably as you said, the new WU that have the base value of 1395 points. I haven't crunched one myself.

@sswilson. How are those new WU?

P6040 or P6041. My Q9550 uploaded a 6041 earlier today and is now working on a 6040. HFM is reporting a credit of about 7800 points (including the bonus, of course).

A 9800GT will produce 500-1000PPD more than a GT 240 and will be cheaper if you pick up a used one.

Also added to the original post.

Bruce (Site Admin) posted this update on the WU shortage on the F@H forums;


Quote:
A number of new projects have been released for some clients so the shortage condition is improving but I wouldn't call the issue isn't solved yet. (It's certainly not solved if you happen to be running one of the client types that is still experiencing shortages.)

Last year, FAH had WU shortages because the servers couldn't handle all of the load. The servers were upgraded and that's no longer the issue. Today it's more a question of taxing the scientists.

FAH only issues WUs from projects that have scientific value. Stanford will not intentionally reissue work that has already been completed successfully, but they do start new projects from time to time. Before a new project can be started, there's a significant amount of research that needs to be done to make sure the project is likely to produce useful results. Then the project must be configured and evaluated so they know it's going to be a successful project. Only then will a project be released for processing.

(Of course once a project yields results, the scientist has to analyze the data and either devise a new project based on what has been learned or prepare a journal paper to publish the results.) In many cases, the same scientists who are doing this pre- and post- work are the same ones that are managing other aspects of FAH. (It's relatively recent that FAH hired a professional programming firm, and resources are still rather limited.)

I don't know how many new projects are being prepared or for which clients or when more will be on-line, but it's a never-ending process. All you can do is be patient if your type of client is not receiving new assignments.

As far as PPD on my 9800GTs goes.... with the current crop of WUs, ranges from aprox 4200 - 5300 PPD.

And yeah, that would have been the points after the credit was applied... really long WU, most are around 8 hrs, this one was sitting at 16 hrs left to completion when it was already at 44%.

PPD not all that great on my FF2 rig. was sitting at around 6500 PPD while average of the older ones was around 7200 - 7500. That rig's only got 2G of memory onboard, so I'm wondering if the larger WUs will do better with more memory (I've got a second set of the same memory, but have to swap it out of a different machine).

Why'd you delete them?

I didn't, it did it on it's own, that's what I saw when I woke up this morning. Now I'm back on bigadv.

There is no shortage of -bigadv units. That was just a fluke.
