Hello!
Very new here and I've just had this in the background on one of my laptops for a while now.
From what I'm able to observe, Universe BHspin v2 is the main thing being concentrated on with ULX, black hole database, etc netting very little (less than 1%). Are there ever work units for these projects and if so how are the runtimes vs. Universe BHspin v2? I'm seeing preferences for GPUs (AMD specifically) but am unable to find any information regarding this - are there no longer GPU WUs for this project?

My big rigs for this will be a ryzen pro 1700x and ryzen 1800x (the latter with an rx570), but I also have some low powered Atom x and z series devices and older core 2 duo and quads. Last thing I want to do is end up with work I can't send in on time.

Any help appreciated!
thanks

Currently is no plans for GPU app.
CPU tasks you will finish before deadline even on very slow CPU's.

Thank you very much. I'll be getting more machines onto this project.
