For the sake of making things more interesting, I have decided to up the GPU cap from 2750PPD to 3000PPD. This will be effective on August 1st.

No. I have discussed this with Lemans81. We both think this is a good idea. We just cannot have any more than 3K though, otherwise CPUs will not be able to keep up.

Ok, it can only help our team. That just means that smp folders need to complete two wu's more often than not or else they'll get passed by the gpu folders.

Exactly. We need to make it a competition, not unfair.
