PRIME GRID cutting back points A LOT!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The points are being cut in half if I read this correctly... I was wondering what was going on, so looked around..

PPS (Sieve) cobblestone per WU is being decreased to reflect the majority use of the tpsieve application. This will be completed in two phases based upon historical transitions: 1) credit will drop from 4523 to 3607 to reflect the transition of sr2sieve to ppsieve; 2) credit will then drop from 3607 to 2251 to reflect the transition of ppsieve to tpsieve.

Credit will be decreased by ~200 cobblestones per week until those numbers are achieved. Once 3607 is reached, we'll pause while we review the impact of the 3M-6M sieve to testing times. We'll adjust the 2251 number, if needed, and then continue the ~200 per week decrease until the final number is reached. The entire process is expected to take 12-16 weeks.

Status for July
31 July - 3607
24 July - 3719
17 July - 3923
10 July - 4127
3 July - 4327
2 July - 4523

Normally I don't run PrimeGrid... it isn't an interesting task for me. I only use it for BGB and sometimes to help the TEAM get some more points quickly...

However, this puts it on par with other GPU tasks more or less. We will see what the numbers look like later...

For this BGB, I will run PG... maybe next time something else and that would be fine by me cuz everyone have the same problem!

BTW, new rule... nobody allowed to run DnetC or Moo Wrapper for BGB... just made that up.

LOL!

PPS for GPU was overrated in terms of points. No wonder why Primegrid is so popular... With a GTX460 I managed 14.000 points in one hour. Some projects take a few days/week to reach that.

That was why I hated PG... they messed up all the pie charts and such with their 4x overpoint awards... Of course it attracted all the so called "point whores" as well which detracted from other (IMHO) more important and beneficial projects.
