Hello folks;

Just wondering if there will be any "short run" work units in the near future?
Or is there an alternative? Are the "New ACEMD work units" also rather short GPU work units?

I don't run "long runs" because my GPUs are not the most powerful: GT710, GT730, GTX745 and GT1030.
So for the moment my settings are set to accept only "short runs".

I have not had any work units for a long time. :-(
I understand that there were problems, but so I hope to be able to help the project again.

Have a nice day;
Carl Philip

The Test work units (to this point) have been using short tasks, so it is an option for you.
A new batch of Test work units have just been released. As there are more GPUs than work units, you will have to be patient and try your luck in catching a task.
Just set your GPUGRID Preferences to "Run Test Applications" and include "ACEMD3" applications.
As a comparison, a GTX750 can complete a Test applications (ADRIA Short application) in less than 16 hours.
