I am just asking out of curiosity:

how come that some of the current ADRIA tasks yield 675.000 credit points, and some others only 562.500 ?
From what I can see so far on my box with two RTX3070 inside, crunching time is about the same.

The base amount for these workunits is 450.000 credits.
If your host returns the result within 48 hours, it receives 25% bonus: 450.000 + 112.500 = 562.500 credits
If your host returns the result within 24 hours, it receives 50% bonus: 450.000 + 225.000 = 675.000 credits
These workunits are quite long: the processing of these workunits could easily take more than 12 hours (it takes 15h 45m on one of your cards, and 17h 38m on the other), so if your host have more than 0.5 days queue, then these workunits does not returned within 24 hours, therefore they receive only 25% bonus.

Zoltan, many thanks.
Shame on me - I completely forgot about this "old" rule. Simple enough. Now I know again :-)
