Still splitting I see. Have 35 onboard all crunchers currently; with this daily driver with 19 alone.

It looks like I'm up to 178 in the past days, that's a pile for an AP run.
EDIT: But 19 of those are still lost soles waiting to get released.

~230 since the whole deal started, on 3 boxes. Best run I can recall in a couple years? 8 years stale, but hey, if it's science ...
Hope it keeps up; 76F today, 30's and snow for Monday, they say ...

Got a couple, ran two, aborted the last one. They're not going to validate anyway due to my RX470 always reporting zero single and repetitive pulses (the app is apparently too old for my GPU). Too bad, as 20 minutes for run time is quite nice.

39 out of this last lot so far and 83 for the last 2 days over 2 rigs.

I set both my rigs to AP only about 6 weeks ago. My RAC has dropped from 29,000 to around 1,500...........when it evaporates so will I.

I got 7 AP's in this round...........BIG WHOOP!

Probably Sayonara soon.

Bummer ....
I've actually thought about forgetting APs entirely. Seems to me with SoG (latest Lunatics Beta), MBs are paying as well or better. I'm watching carefully to see what happens to my RAC after this run ...

I tried SoGs on one rig and it became totally unusable for anything else. Framing and mouse lockup and keyboard delay no matter what values I tried .
The other thing I've noticed is I'm not getting any AP Nvidia jobs just Intel(Haswell), and no CPU jobs.

Must all be going to the 'Big Rigs'.

I'm finding 22 min gets 2 AP WUs done for 500 or more Credits.
MB varies a lot not only between Arecibo & GBT, but the tasks available in each.
Some GBTs take 9min for a bit over 130 Credits (with the randomness it can be as little as 120 or as much as 170!). Others take less than 7min for around 110 (as low as 80 as high as 130). a 5min Arecibo WU can pay between 60 to 120.
AP still pays more.

However the only reason I'm doing AP is because since the Scheduler was broken back in Dec when it comes to application settings, about the only way to keep getting MBv8 work is to also do AP.

When?
The first SoG released for stock wasn't ready- the effects were as you described.
However the current version in the Lunatics Alpha v6 installer were OK on my GTX 750Ti when it was on my i7, even with aggressive settings. WIth less aggressive settings there was no keyboard/screen lag at all. And that's with a slower CPU than your systems have.
The current stock application was further refined to better support much lower end hardware than your listed systems have.

EDIT- if you were using your iGPU at the same time, then I can see why your systems were struggling. All it does is slow down your CPU crunching, and impact on feeding your addon GPU.
Disable iGPU crunching then try SoG again.
The loss of CPU output is only offset with iGPU crunching if you have a limited core count, very low clock rate CPU. That's not the case with either of your systems.

AVX for your CPU, SoG with come command line values & no iGPU crunching would give you significant output, with no system responsiveness impact. You could use the iGPU for your monitor display, and use extremely aggressive values for SoG with no effect on system responsiveness.

I would suggest that the bigger rigs are probably returning more work units every 5 minutes than most rigs, so they end up request more work each time. As such, they end up getting more work units per hour (ie including APs) so that is why the "have more APs".

Grant is correct, APs still pay more.

I agree completely. Even with two MB tasks reporting for a combined credit of 110-240, a single AP in the same time frame nets 400-500 credits.

I have received my first ever Astropulse GPU units today. However, I find these are crashing Windows, three times today the screen has locked up and the fans slow down as all BOINC work stops.

I have a Nviida GTX 750TI, using the recommended command line in the Lunatics documentation:

-use_sleep -unroll 10 -oclFFT_plan 256 16 512 -ffa_block 12288 -ffa_block_fetch 6144

There is nothing in the event log to give a hint why Windows crashed, any suggestions please?

If you're going to ask these questions then unhide your computer/s as that will let us see what's going on and then we maybe able to properly help you, pretty much impossible for us to help you otherwise.

With your computers hidden and unable to read any of your stderr.txt outputs, don't know what your command line looks like. The GTX 750Ti has 5 compute units so your -unroll 10 is exactly TWICE too many. I wouldn't run with -hp either.

I think I have found the setting to display my computer.

I am only getting GPU Astropulse work units now, not had any CPU Astropulse workunits lately. Any advice would be appreciated otherwise I think I will have to abort these work units as PC is too unstable when running them.
