Default Work saved

For some time I've thought that the future DC
saved shouldn't be valued as highly as the
initial LL.

OTOH, it has recently occurred to me that in practice
the typical fate of first time assignments is to get
returned unfinished about 4 times before they
get completed, thereby increasing "work" saved.

What kind is it? Any recent AMD or NVIDIA should be able to contribute.

I remember he posted in another thread; if memory serves it's a (really) old nVidia.

The good news is that you do support OpenCL 1.0! The bad news is that you have to have OpenCL 1.1 to use mfakto

I don't know why this is required, and would ask bdot why 1.0 is no good.

My Galaxy GTX440 was about $100 last June. I'm expecting some after-Christmas sales on not quite state of the art hardware that will include plenty fast GPUs....allowing you to pick up a decent one for a good price.

I would concur in Christenson's expectation of post-holiday sale prices.

Maybe this beastie (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130626) would even get more affordable. Not that I would suggest it seriously. Dual GTX 460 SLI-on-a-card, minimum 46 amps on 12v. Worse, it looks sure to dump most of the heat inside the case. Bunch of hard luck stories in the reviews, too.

I don't know about what's there now, but the one I linked to I got for $149.99 (no rebate) way back in April.
