Why ?


One took 3 days = NO BONUS

One took less than 24hrs = 50% BONUS

EDIT TO ADD:

I think that machine is wasting its time on GPUGRID because as soon as 2 days has been reached and breached the WU is resent and most machines will beat that one to the post. This means that the slow machine is crunching for nothing but base credit as the canonical result is the only one that counts.
This project depends on the last WU result before it can issue the next WU so speed is rewarded by bonuses.

At that time ther was a bug in the system which, has since been fixed.

The second issue of the WU finished first and got a bonus. The first WU issued finished second but within 5 days and since the credit was already set by the first also got a bonus.

This was an anomally that had been bugging GPUGRID for a while but has recently been fixed and will no longer happen.

When we have many workunits out, the queue is long and slow machine gets there first.
