Big Projects

Postby Spitfire19 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 10:40 pm

I have noticed that big projects ">10MB" option is available under the Connections tab in GPU2. What sizes of projects (in MBs) can I expect if I click the box. (on average)

The big option is not used for GPU projects. At least to my knowledge.

Not yet, but they are growing in size. ;)

Also, the downloaded work unit is small. Only the results file would be large.

I have that checkbox enabled on my clients. I run SMP and GPU3. I have a relatively slow Internet connection, but uploading/downloading have never taken longer than a minute or so. I have not seen my RAM being consumed that much either. Unless you have a really materialistic machine, I'd enable it. You'd probably get WUs that are worth more points anyway, but I'm not sure about that. AFAIK, its not that big of a deal.
