1) Message boards : Number crunching : GPU version requirements for the search up to 10^20 (Message 1044)

Post:
Now that WU's allocate less than 900MB, is it possible to relax the GPU memory requirement to 1GB ?

I'll try to do it today and then watch if I get any new WU errors on the project.


Did this ever get done?
2) Message boards : Bug tracker : GTX 465? (Message 1043)

Post:
Is it absolutely necessary to have 2G on a GPU? The work request specifies 800MB. The GTX 465 has 1G, but I'm getting this message:
Is this a bug or just message that comes from having the wrong card? This is on a Gentoo Linux system.
I just don't understand why there is a message of "less than 256 MB".

<core_client_version>7.14.2</core_client_version>
