I was running [email protected], can't get any work at the moment, I dunno why. I figure I'll pause my [email protected] and run milkyway.

Got 2 gtx295's too!

Does BOINC use your CPU or GPU? Also is it horrible with ATI GPUs like Folding?

So I am thinking about using my CPU for some BOINC. What would be the best project to use it for?

I'm going to quote gamer11200 here, since I asked this question and he responded to me:

[email protected] - As of yesterday, there wasn't a OCN team for this project
[email protected] - Work units finish in about 3 hours sometimes
[email protected] - Work units finish in about 2-3 hours
[email protected] - Depends on the WU, this one can be extremely memory intensive. I've had work units using 700MB/core at one time. The work units finish quite fast though.


For all the projects, I think [email protected] is the slowest one if you don't have a 4+core pc. Since you have a dual, it is expected that those work units will take a lengthy time. Another project that you can consider is the World Community Grid. On my sig rig, the work units take about 5-6 hours at the most, and seeing that your CPU speed is 3.7GHZ, those WUs should be able to get done in under 5 hours no issue.
I'm currently running Einstein on my CPU. WU seem to finish in 4-5 hours. I'm doing Einstein more for what it's trying to accomplish rather than the amount of points I can get.

There is also THIS chart, which is incredibly confusing. And I don't know where the numbers are coming from.

Project of the month right now is [email protected] but be warned it uses a ton of memory 260megs per core.

It uses crazy amounts of memory for sure mines at 294megs each right now.

It is a very high memory usage project, but if you want to see your RAM go away fast, use [email protected] Some work units for me have used 700+MB
