My GPU keeps getting 8018 jobs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Please help me understand why this keeps happening? If they need to be run then so be it. Who am I to pick and choose which ones I get. I am just trying to better understand why I keep getting them and how much longer might I keep getting them.

Thanks all.

Probably because you have a 580, which is pretty much the best card for doing core15 projects. So the server might be sending you this project because you have a high speed of returns on it.

I'm almost certain that the servers aren't assigning certain projects to certain cards. As far as I know the most they do is check the architecture to make sure they send work that it can actually do, but after that it randomly decides what appropriate work to send, factoring in the general assignment weight of each project.

OP, are you running client-type:advanced? It seems like everyone running that either gets a mix of core 17 projects or a bunch of 8018's, with 762x pretty much never showing up. The two different work types appear to come in bunches, i.e. you'll get many 8018's in a row, followed by a number of core 17 projects, then a bunch of 8018's, etc.

If you are running advanced, you might try removing that. You'll get all core 15 projects, but I think most of them will be from 762x, which earn more (they were all re-benchmarked a while ago and got a points boost, while it appears 8018 was left alone and now earns less). Core 17 isn't that great on Fermi, so this might be the best thing for you PPD-wise.
