what WU's can produce these points?
Posted 27 June 2011 - 01:50 AM
They are new bigadv A5 WUs:
We are preparing to release a new A5 bigbeta/bigadv project. This one will be a little larger than the current generation of A5 projects, and it will enable us to tackle a new set of important scientific questions.
Because the work units are a bit larger, we are setting higher memory and processor limits:
2G RAM, 12 cores
We may adjust both of these as necessary.
We'll also start these work units out as 64-bit Linux only.
Initial points values and deadlines are similarly subject to change but currently stand at:
Base points: 30964 now 28384
Deadline: 17 days
Preferred deadline: 10.2 days
Thanks for testing, and we look forward to your feedback on these!

this guy is apparently using server boards with multicore opterons to get these points. he also found a way to convince the linux client to believe an x6 amd qualifies for -bigadv. I tracked him to his lair and cast the net... well ok, I invited him for a visit to our little folding home here, we'll see if he responds.
I did ask while there if they know a way to get the windows client to do the same. again we'll see.

but if he's willing to show me how this -bigadv on a six core thing works, maybe we can get some of our guys to use it. I'd give it a try myself if i had an x6.
I wonder if any of our reviewers have an extra one laying around???
