    Short deadline... long run time

    I just noticed that one of my rigs downloaded a wu that has a deadline of 12/21/16; however, the time left in BoincTasks shows 17d 6h. It has a very slow GT 710 running the task.

    Should I be concerned?

    Probably. GPUGrid really requires higher end gpus now, even for the short tasks. You will get a wuprop star though, so all is not lost.

    I've got a GTX 560M in my laptop, both have done okay so far; I've only run 13 valid tasks in the past couple of months. This will be the first one I've missed.

    I will take the star though.

    Re: Short deadline... long run time

    Recently, I've gotten a few short tasks on a OC model 750Ti that ran between 20 minutes and 1:20 (1 hour and 20 minutes). I also got a long WU on a 1070 that ran 7 hours. And hours are hours, their all good.
