#1 WCG OpenPandemics GPU WU's

Post by Saetia » Sun Apr 11, 2021 2:34 am

So last week WCG announced that they had configured OpenPandemics to run on GPU's here: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/abou ... icleId=693

I was looking forward to this and was excited to see that I got a few of these work units over the weekend; which my desktop's GPU blitzed through within minutes, but since then haven't seen anymore in the pipeline.

Have they run out of them and are back to CPU only modules, or is it my machine that's not being given anymore at the moment? I haven't changed any of the default profile settings and it's still set to receive GPU work but no sign of them.

They (WCG) are only releasing ~3400 (I think) every hour or so.
Being as we're in a "Sprint" those are going real fast and it's hard to get any. Hopefully after some bugs are worked out they'll increase the amount available.

Ah, great. It's not just me then. ^^

3,400 seems like so little with how fast they can be crunched. Hopefully they do increase it soon.

Try to prompt them as often as you can, more the better. I am not sure, but if you refuse cpu it may get you more gpu. Not sure. I keep getting them.

Hopefully they release more as it will finally give me a chance to take the only project that AP is not first in the country for. That's been a long term goal for me.
The best form of help from above is a sniper on the rooftop....
