Anyone else stuck in Project 8018 ?

I have been getting these for the last 4 days or so.

They have no QRB and my ppd avg is a dropping:!: :!:

Woof!

I was reading some posts about this at the Stanford forums.

The new Advanced, QRB, Core 17 GPU work units have become Very popular Very quickly.

But it means that the older Core 15 work was being neglected - and the scientists on those projects still wanted to get their work completed.

So the Folding server priority has been adjusted... so that more of the Core 15 work gets handed out. Even if you use the Advanced setting.


So we'll slog through these older, non-QRB work units until the project is done. I'll miss the extra points... but this is all really about the science and looking for a cure - right? :wink:


If you've been Folding for a long time - think of it as the second coming of the 'patty-melt' work units.

Same thing here, glad it's not just me. Looking forward to more core 17 WUs coming available again. What I find frustrating is that I'm intentionally folding Core 15 on my GT 430 because that nets better PPD (Core 17 doesn't seem very effective on weaker hardware), but my 650 Ti with the advanced flag set is getting mostly 15s now too. Luck of the draw, but like Gary said, all for the same goal in the end!

Maybe its my hardware, but I am still pulling down x17 cores. :D

Do you have a really beefy GPU(s)? I did some folding on my Radeon 7950 to stress test the overclock on it, and I also had no trouble pulling them down, but my 650 Ti hasn't gotten any these past couple weeks.

For me the 650 Ti did benefit quite a bit from the QRB, but all the more low-end GPUs I've tried, like my GT 430, the mobile radeon in my laptop, etc, actually lost PPD from Core 17. I am wondering if they are trying to build in a filter based on GPU type so that cards below a certain caliber get shunted to Core 15. I was actually hoping that they do something that before pushing Core 17 out of 'advanced', but I was obviously hoping my 650 Ti would make the cut :|

Yes I have beefy GPUs, folding on 2 Titans, so I hope they keep feeding me Core 17s.

The Core 17 work has Vanished - at least for me.

It's been almost a week since I've seen any on my newer GPU cards.

I'm tempted to just shut them off till the Core 17 work comes back.


:(

Still missing Core 17 here in the North land (Minnesota)

Seen more Bigfoot than the Core 17 lately.....

Two GTX 780's are still chewing up project 8108's.

I'm thinking with 250,000 active folders we should be done with these.

I must have ended up in the dog house somehow :?: :?:

Woof :!:

changing the 'client-type' from 'advanced' to 'beta' seems to be helping some folks get the 'better' units.

I've moved to an Radeon 7970 so I've pretty much been getting units with high PPD along with the QRB using the 'advanced' switch. I like my 110k PPD card for ~$310 :twisted: :lol:

I haven't tried "beta" although I used to be one Stanford's many beta testers back in the day.

Going to "Advanced" has bumped my garden variety stock ASUS HD7770-1GD5 from around 4K to between 18 and 22K ppd.

It's amazing to see just one machine cranking out more ppd than my entire farm did back in the mid 2000s.
