Yes I do mean world community grid, I do understand that they have started gpu beta testing but due to them having other projects would they not have projects that run best on cpu?
Only coronavirus is going to GPU. African rainfall, cancer, and immunity are still CPU only.

After a false start the latest batch of Beta units appear to have gone through OK.

A slight aside - it can get very confusing if one sets a new system straight out into the wilds of Beta testing as one can't be sure any/all of the problems seen are down the application under test or the "nice shiny new" system. So it is better for one's sanity to start off using a "production" project (one with a stable application) fr a few days just to make sure you understand what the new system is doing.
