While checking the one machine I have going I notice Sog and Sah units .

Not only do they take longer but you don't get any extra credit for it .

FIX THE CREDIT SCREW it is getting out of hand or fire the rick that refuses to seriously look into it

The credits are the only reward there is and this B/S about it only being about the science is B/S and we all know it

I suggest you follow Einstein the longer it takes to do a unit the higher the reward

Cobblestones is irrelevant theses days with Multi cored CPU's and extremely fast GPU's

CPU doing AP's nearly 2 days doing same on GPU 2 hrs 20 mins but SAME CREDIT that's total B/S

Fix the credit system and lose that f-ing EGO you have and do what the USERS are asking .

No names needed as the person knows whom I'm talking about

No, that's the way things should be- getting the same amount of credit for doing the same amount of work.
If you're able to more WUs in a shorter period of time, then you will get more credit per day than those that can't do as many in the same period.

Yes you are correct Grant wrong example to use .

Theses new SoG and Sah files thou are a joke the GPU seems to be only working 1/3 the time if that and times are over 2 hrs !!!!!

I've had to stop doing 3 and go to 2 as the times where soming like 6 hrs doing 3 threads compared to 1 hr 5 mins doing Cuda with 3 threads

(opps I realized I haven't done AP's on the CPU for long time forgot how long they took to do )

On Einstein@home I get 4400 credits for a GPU task and 2000 credits for a CPU task. The CPU task takes much longer.
