Totally not worth it. They're complete pants at Einstein with 2 concurrent taking a little over 13 minutes each which is less than half the performance of a R7. I gave 4 per a try but it just doubled the time taken.
nvidia-smi says the V100 is at 100% utilisation but also that the card is...
Absolutely, I'd never suggest buying them but renting at $0.80 per hour has it's place.
Assuming space in existing rigs, the purchase of 16 x R7s at UK prices = £9600 + electricity to run + dripping sweat without A/C = serious grief from wife
Renting 8 x v100s for a few hours to maybe stir...
That was fun! Well done to the team on 4th, the highest ever placement together with winning [H]'s first event medal to boot.
Congrats to TSBT and friends for the organisational and tactical prowess they brought to the party. A clean sweep. Again!
And finally, kudos to SG for hosting the...
I agree with your former point but not the latter. Providing help doesn't really resonate unless you're sacrificing something in doing so.
Apologies if any of my actions have led to your decision.
You'll be sorely missed CV.
Well done all! Our competition may be off on the WCG Thor challenge right now but it's good practice for next year when stomping home won't be quite so easy.
Thanks Tony. Got lucky and guessed right again.
I've not noticed any significant variation when running a project with consistent run times e.g. Acoustics tasks are completed in 42 mins at 3.5GHz with a variation of +/- 30 secs.
The only thing about the 2990WX is that it has a tendency to go up in a ball of flames when there's a full moon...
Wow, it's been a while. Remember being pleased as punch with myself when I got tasks to run on my cutting edge 560Tis, lol. Something nasty seems to have happened to all the word contractions I used in the GPU guide. I'll see if I can fix that.
Happy to give a short challenge a go once the...
Indeed, we'll just wait until fastgeek comes home and sees what you kids have done to his house.
It always looks good for Spectre half way through the movie only for them to be foiled by the end credits :p
Glad to see XSUSA members posting here. You've helped spice up what could have been a dull FB year.
There's no sour grapes here guys. The only time I've been bothered by a tactic is when teams behind us were boosted. Why bothered? Because we didn't do it first :D Marquis of Queensbury...
