I have been reading through the fora to find out, but so far, I have not been lucky enough, so maybe someone here can help.

How long recording time is on a 50 Gb Tape?

How many AP WU's and how many normal/vlar WU's are produced from each tape?

Do the splitters produce the needed WU's (CPU only/CPU+CUDA/CPU+ATI) automatically following demand, or is it a 'fixed' ratio?

Tnx :)

The definitive answer to the time of tape and number of tasks is to be found in Number Crunching, probably in the postings of Joe (AKA Josef W. Segur).
