    as this is big news thought i would post in a new thread as well as the F@H update thread

    the GPU client will be getting bonus points for quick return and will be working on the same unit as the CPU unit smp

    Nor would it with Nvidia's 6-series, but it's a step forward nevertheless.

    I just wonder why GPU WUs can't have bonus points for quick returns in the first place.
    The reasoning that it does other things more efficiently doesn't really hold much water; they're still WUs that needs to be folded.
    Maybe different ratios for the bonus points, but what's the point in not giving any and went with a 'flat rate'?

    Why don't they put some effort into getting support for HD7K and 600 series cards?
