A new Cancer project has just started over at WCG - Help Conquer Cancer   Thumbs Up

Can't see any any system requirements yet, but the first WU's seem pretty big - apparently Boinc is estimating around 7 hours completion time on a Quad @ 3.4Ghz.

 Eh Quad?  3.4ghz? 7hrs?  Glad I didn't buy one.

I'm getting 10hr guestimates on the 2.3ghz AMD.

Well it is estimating yours at nearly 50% longer to crunch, so sounds about right  Tongue

Not much...   Swapping the Optey-170 (2ghz stock) with the Optey-185 (2.6ghz) Should be able to hit 3ghz with it without any problems.

Looking around, the 185 is the fastest still available for the socket 939 boards...  Touch more horsepower for fewer $$$$.

Darn thing is cheaper than what I paid for the 170 last year.  Doh

  I already do...  Shocked   Been looking at them both then and now....

Woulda got one cept it won't fit on my current motherboard.  And adding another $800 to that cost to complete the build is not in the parts fund.

Would think somewhere around 1 gHZ or better would be enough, maybe as slow as 750 mHZ.  Also note that project is BOINC only.

There are no minimum CPU requirements listed for any WCG Boinc projects these days - they only req a minimum 550MHz CPU if using UD - so basically anything really as long as it will crunch a unit within the required time  Thumbs Up

All projects from now on will be Boinc Only - UD is in its final death throes  Hoghappy

From what I've seen of the runtimes of those wu's, it could take a couple of days for your old 650 to finish one.

I'm not certain but I think they tinker with the unit sizes after launch depending on how things run and what the reported run times average out at.

If your wondering why your Help Conquer Cancer WUs were aborted or why your not getting any:

Help Conquer Cancer project has been paused for a few days     
We discovered some problems with the results computed for the Help Conquer Cancer project and found a bug in the science calculation. In the interest of not possibly wasting any grid computation time, we paused this project for a few days and are starting testing of a fix for this problem. During this period, any members who have selected to only run this project will have paused agents. We encourage those members to consider helping with the other projects on World Community Grid. We expect the project to resume next week. We are sorry for the inconvenience and disruption.
