Switching to Big SMP WU's? Yes or no?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Once the SMP bonuses are coming in, does it pay more to fold big WUs rather than normal WUs? I'd expect a larger bonus, am I right? Right now it takes my system ~12 hours to fold a normal SMP WU.

I've searched but can't find the info. Basically as I understand it, if you complete a WU faster, you get more bonus points, as long as you complete it before the deadline. So far I haven't had any problem with that, but if I finished one in say 8 hours rather than 12, would I see a larger bonus?

Thanks a lot for your time everybody!

If you are talking about bigadvs you will not finish in time on that quad.
You need 8 threads to even get the units, unless you do the linux trick but that is only necessary with i5 2500k, x6.

I don't think I'm talking about bigadvs. When you configure SMP2, you have the option to download, small (<5mb), normal (<10mb), or big wu's (>10mb). Those aren't bigadvs right?

All smp WU's are considered the same size. There is no such thing as a big smp WU. There is smp and bigadv.

So why is there an option to change size of work assignment on the sixth question? (Image below) Does it provide a benefit to bonus points?

It doesn't really do anything, though if you are folding bigadvs and have that option at normal it may cause problems receiving units.
Since you can not fold them, it really doesn't matter what you have it set at.
