Open Pandemics GPU Beta Test
« on: February 26, 2021, 05:42:09 PM »

I have just noticed WCG has started GPU work in beta for Open Pandemics of course I can't seem to get any so maybe the first batch has been crunched already.

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread?thread=43205

"We are starting a beta test for the GPU version of AutoDock for the Open Pandemics - COVID-19 project. There are a few minor changes to the code still to come. However, this first version is running stable in our internal testing and we know volunteers are very eager to help.

To be able to receive any beta work, volunteers will want to make sure that on the website under My Contributions -> Beta Testing, they have checked the device profiles that they wish to participate in beta.

Also, there is a change to the website to allow work on each GPU vendor. For this, volunteers will need to go to Settings->Device Manager->Device Profiles. From there, select each device profile you wish to run GPU work on and scroll down to the Graphics Card Usage section. In that section you can select which type of cards you want to allow to run between ATI/NVIDIA/Intel. In this section there is also a setting to allow GPU work while your computer is in use. It is recommended to set this to no (which is the default setting). While GPU work is running on the card that drives your display, your general computer usage may be impacted."

BTW what were the subprojects on WCG that used to use GPUs?

Thanks for the update Shift  :thumbsup:
I'm not aware of any WCG sub projects that ever used the GPU. This will be great if they get it up and running.  :cheers:

Hi All

Bit of a delay in the next Beta workunits, Uplinger mentioned in the WCG Forums, having a build issue they are trying to rectify.

They had a GPU app for Help Conquer Cancer (HCC), but this was way back in 2013.

Cheers

I've just got some beta WUs, they are estimating at 32 minutes but are taking more like 13 minutes.

World Community Grid: OpenPandemics - COVID-19 Now Running on Machines with Graphics Processing Units
The software that powers OpenPandemics - COVID-19 has been adapted to use GPU power. This will not only help the researchers to screen more molecules, but also could help them study molecules that are more complex.

Sweet. Has anyone seen one of these in the wild (non-beta) yet?

I'm trying to get some work now but no luck.
I'll probably give up soon as the WW challenge is just around the corner.

Its a shame WCG don't have a page that shows how much work is available.

I managed to get about three after I posted. They aren't as rare as the TB workunits but definitely not a reliable source of work/
