All,

Notwithstanding this "short run" item is slated to run for 15h:30m (hardly "short", but that could be because it has no precedent), has anyone else encountered one of these yet and, if so, do we know whether these will work on the NVidia GTX10xx series cards?

I've found out, when I read the relevant thread in the "Graphics Cards" section, that a new version of the application is being worked on (using CUDA 8) and wondered whether I am the lucky recipient of an early example (which, if I am, I'll try out on my GTX1060 rather than on my GTX750ti).

<edit>Discovered the "PASCAL App Testing" post in the "News" section so that answers my question; now let's see if it works!</edit>

Cheers
Dave

They're working on your 1060 but so far the run times are really ugly. Hopefully they'll improve.

It's far too early to judge the GTX1000 range. The Short Run times are all over the place on my GTX970's (even for all 5ns tasks) never mind the Pascals (which are in Beta testing) - The present short WU's are variable, so best not to draw conclusions based on their return times. The tasks also replicate small size molecular interactions (so they don't scale). Anyway the Pascal's performance/Watt was the headline grabber rather than their out and out performance, which is expected to be similar to previous generations (just roughly equating to one GPU down; GTX980Ti≈GTX1080, GTX1070≈GTX980...).
