I see credit was recently doubled to 8,000 (and the average runtime also seems to have increased with it, though not quite doubled) and now decreased to 800. I'm not complaining, just curious about the reasoning.


feel waste of resources when you make app for linux first..there is hundreds people with 20×× nvidia cards...

RTX cards work just fine, though?

If anyone cares, I have calculated average task times for some of my cards (sample size 50):

GTX 1660 Ti: 239 secs
GTX 1080 Ti: 306 secs
GTX 1070 Ti: 337 secs
GTX 980: 333 secs

These are with two tasks running in tandem on each card. Hooray for Turing!

I see. Yeah, I have 380 aborted tasks from a few days ago, when I was still playing around with things. Thanks for the response.

Out of tasks again?

EDIT: Okay, one of my hosts is getting tasks again, but I can't seem to get anything for this one. Exact same OS, two Pascal cards instead of one Maxwell and one Turing. The driver is a bit newer. What am I missing here? The event log gives the usual "got 0 tasks" without any elaboration.

EDIT2: Nevermind, posted too soon. After half an hour or so I finally received some tasks.

I just put a new app version out there that should take care of the device selection bug. It is version 3.01

Works, both GPUs are now actually being used.

^I have seen the same behaviour on a 2-GPU system. It shows one task for each device, but it's actually crunching both on a single card while the other one is left idle.

EDIT: For now I have simply added an exclusion for the second GPU (GTX 980) and assigned it to another project. The first (GTX 1660 Ti) is now crunching two tasks at the same time with a noticeable boost in GPU utilization (and throughput? projected credit/day is 4+ million). Too bad each seems to require a full CPU thread.
