Hi - I crunch TF, normally the credit is 1700 per task.
The last task I completed earned me 1500.
What are the rules for the credit awarded?

Higher ranges have a lower runtime.

Hi Gary, welcome to the project :)

As Reb mentions, as n increase the runtime decreases.

If you at n=100M runs a task in 1 minute, then at n=200M you will complete a task for the same bit level in 30 seconds. At n=1000M wich is around maximum n, you will only need about 6 seconds for completing a task for the same bitlevel.

One thing to note, is that not only should credit decrease, as n grows, but there is also a "lot" of free credit, because if you find a factor, the WU completes instantly and your GPU continues to the next task.
