    Formula-BOINC 2019

    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...

    Formula-BOINC 2019

    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...

    Formula-BOINC 2019

    They crunch a task in approx. 40 sec with 8 tasks running. So, a theoretical of almost 4M ppd but invalids and gaps in work bring it down.

    Doh, rumbled :D Not such a high end CC, they're cheap as chips for what they can do on MW. I'll be good and stop playing around with the toys now.

    10th Annual BOINC Pentathlon hosted by SETI.Germany

    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...

    Thanks for all the fish ...

    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.

    Nomination: DC'er of the Month: January 2019

    I'll test the theory. I nominate pututu for his consistent contributions to our crunching efforts, to the forum and for being an all round good egg.

    Tie? We don't need any stinking ties! Now a good Thai does sound good. Can't I just pay a dodgy lawyer to get me a good poll result? Allegedly it's all the rage right now.

    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.

    RFGuy_KCCO, there appears to be some latency issues running multithreaded applications though. Some 2990WX performance discussions over at TAAT here. I'll try to test this out in the near future.

    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...

    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...
