SMP deadline changes

By , the in Folding@Home Project - No comment
Following an internal discussion, the Pande Group has decided to lengthen the deadlines for non-bigadv SMP units. The new deadlines are:

  • Preferred Deadline: 6x the time to completion on the i5 benchmark machine
  • Final Deadline: 10x the time to completion on the i5 benchmark machine

Projects 6701 and 6702 will have their preferred deadlines extended to fit the new model for all units issued under the new system. The final deadline will remain the same so as not to change the K factor. No other currently issued projects will be retroactively modified to the new system.

Bigadv work units will continue to use the previous, tighter deadlines. They are specifically designed for fast completion and so the Pande Group would prefer that any machines which are marginal for bigadv, fold standard SMP units instead.
