Looks like this has become so popular that there isn't enough work units to go around.


I have been struggling to get WUs for the last five days or so. 7 WUs completed in the last eighteen hours, in stead of twenty-two to thirty WUs per day before.

Anyone else having trouble getting WUs?

Yes, I’ve been having the same issue. Lots of sitting idle.

Yeah, I'm also having trouble getting work units. The PCMasterRace subreddit bigged up their teams and Intel and Nvidia shared the links all over social media.

WCCFTech has also created a folding team to jump in on the action. Definitely a lot more folders than usual.

Better more than enough than too little. Those simulations are getting results insanely quick!

Just successfully downloaded a WU in it's entirety and it is chugging away

Most downloads of late have dropped out/failed before completion

Restaurants and bars are closing down as of tomorrow in Oregon, will definitely miss my favorite tap houses

One thing that's worth noting is that there are now Coronavirus workloads for both CPUs and GPUs now.

That's all well and good if you can get a WU to work on, if you are lucky enough to get just one the chances of getting another straight after are slim to none!!!

And who ever designed the client that after so many tries it increases the time before it tries again needs slapping!, Next try 2hrs....i can finish a WU in that time so the only way is to babysit each client by pausing and starting again

Wow - PCMR now has 22,000 active folders, 21,000 of which are new. That's cool to see.

It's been years since I remember having trouble receiving WUs. It usually only happened with new projects.
