I have a nVidia 9500 GS on this client.
It takes 264 minutes to complete a PPS sieve workunit.

Most people run it in place of BOINC. If ran at the same time, BOINC would struggle to get free cycles from PRPNet. However, you could run it at the same time as BOINC if you have BOINC set up to run only if idle. PRPNet would then run and BOINC would wait for it to stop.

Actually, because my GPU can not run CUDA LLR, I use BOINC to process work units only on the GPU and use PRPNet to utilise the CPUs.

MilkyWay would be another CAL app.

MW needs a double precision card, the HD2200 will not cut it.


True!
Collatz looks like the best one!

Yes rroonnaalldd is correct. Primegrid has two GPU applications:
1. nVidia CUDA - requires any CUDA capable card (any 8000 series or above)
2. ATI OpenCL - requires an OpenCL enabled card (ATI Radeon 4000 series or above)

You may be able to use your card on a BOINC project that has a CAL application for ATI cards but I am not currently aware of any!

Any reason? the wus take the same length of time.


Discussions on this topic are already under way here.
No response from the admins yet, but it could be due to any number of things!

Confirmed, my run times are identical but credits are reduced!
Seems to be all WUs from 9am UK time for me that are gaining less credits.
