Someone had mention to keep getting better point credit a switch setting to not download next unit until done with one the gpu is on.
 
What is that setting please and is it worth it?

The switch is next-unit-percentage.  If it's set to a value of 100, then the current unit is completed (100% done) before downloading the next unit.  This prevents the second unit from sitting idle before your GPU starts on it.  This maximizes the quick return bonus (QRB) since it's calculated off of time of download and subsequent upload.
