Thank you for the concise answer as usual Michael. Would one be wise to assume a "30 day notice" for GCW Sieve will be concurrent with the start of the 321 Sieve?

Noticed the 321 Prime Sieve "coming soon". Great news! Will this wait until the conclusion of the current challenge?

I had a 8400 GS running PPS sieve for a while; one task took a little under 20 hours. You might call it a waste of time and effort, but something about getting old and measly hardware like that to contribute fascinates me.

EDIT: oh, didn't notice PPS sieve already got a mention.

Yeah, I figure it's that or put it back in the shoe box!

None of the current transforms will run on pre-Fermi hardware. The old (deprecated) version of OCL2 would do so, but it hasn't been available for a very long time now.

And just to give you an idea of the poor speed of an 8400GS, PPS sieve units take about a day each on that card.



Yep, I've run a few and they take about 28 hrs each.

@Michael: Not at all comfortable with the whole app.info thing. Want to improve all of my llr badges to gold, so will be attempting to set up the multi-threading within the next few weeks. That will be enough of an ordeal for me. I am a very slow two finger typist and even at my glacial speed tend to generate a lot of typos. Have some reading up to do!

Oh well, maybe I actually do need to be on some meds for even considering it. This 8400 GS does have 512Mb memory, but no getting around the CC 1.1 limitation. Guess I'll have to use a GT 1030 then.
Thanks for the replies!

If I was to stop taking my meds for a few days and decided to run a GFNWR work unit on a 8400 GS (that is not a typo) would I have a snowball's chance of ever receiving credit before the deadline extensions ran out and two others completed the task? I ran one a year or two ago on a GT 730 and if memory serves in took about 38 days running 24/7. Felt an odd sense of accomplishment afterwards.....

Thanks for the reply, dthonon! I am a total Linux noob and most of that thread went right over my head. I think I'll run any GFN units on one of my Win 10 machines with a GT 1030 instead. Does the same problem occur with the AP27 work units on Linux?

At what size can we expect the task size to "stabilize"? Along the lines of SR5 or larger?
