My GPU crunches 1 WU in less than 6mins, just wondering why the WUs are so short and if it actually even helps the Seti@Home science team with all these results being sent back? Wouldn't it be easier to have bigger WUs that do more work at once and possibly even benefit the science team since their doing more work at once?
