    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    About the total points for this year. Keep in mind that Ramanujan Machine has probably the lowest points of any project in BOINC. At least the lowest of any I've ever done. Also, only one event was GPU and it was short. The amount of points put out this year is quite astounding since GPUs were...

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    And we seem to be doing it with fewer people each year. I have to wonder where we'd be if the mainpage was still up. And as pututu says, it's time for a break. My hardware and the electric bill is going to get a break for several months until the fall. The Pentathlon is my last gasp before...

    AMD will reportedly stop supporting Windows 10 starting with its new Strix Point APUs

    It doesn't matter. MS stopped supporting it years ago. They refused to backport important kernel changes and scheduler updates despite the fact the two OSes are practically identical under the hood. All the while backporting any additional spying. There is no point in AMD trying to support it...

    AMD will reportedly stop supporting Windows 10 starting with its new Strix Point APUs

    What would be the point of AMD supporting it? MS stopped supporting it in a meaningful way years ago when 11 was released.

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    Less than a day to go. Time to drop any and all bunkers and hope most of the Milkyway tasks validate before the Pentathlon ends.

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    I'll happily accept help from the undead as well as long as they have CPUs and GPUs to add. Warm bodies aren't necessary in my opinion.

    9950X and 9950X3D is going to be terrific.

    I know at least some implementations of the BIOS flashback require that the CPU not even be present in the system otherwise it won't activate/work in the first place.

    Hardware Nexus: ASUS Scammed Us

    Except for a very, very early BIOS the board shipped with, he's never had a problem with the system. That said, the Tomahawk hasn't been any "better" than the Gigabyte board I have and at least when I need to go into the BIOS to do something on my Gigabyte I can find what I need really fast...

    Hardware Nexus: ASUS Scammed Us

    I basically swore off Asus boards back in the Athlon days. I had an A7V-133, A7V-266a and an A7N8x-DLX. A buddy who usually built/upgraded the same time as me also had the exact same boards in his system. Every single one of them died within months. The system would either shut down when turned...

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    I was only asking because I figured most or all bunkers had already been dropped and at the time we were about 600k under the previous throw but that number would likely shrink throughout the day but possibly not by enough. As it is we've overshot the previous throw already so what I had would...

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    I know the day's Javelin throw isn't very old but I was wondering if we might need/want to add some more to it? Just getting the question in for a response closer to the time the day's throw will end. I have a small bunker I'm almost done with which I was going to save for the last throw and...

    Is Freesync on windowed applications available on AMD graphics cards?

    There are options in AMD's control panel which if enabled will disable Freesync. Make sure you don't have any of those enabled. The Freesync toggle should be pretty obvious and included in all of the other settings.

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    I was wondering how we were going to handle this. At the moment I've been keeping my 5800x mostly on Primegrid as it's the only CPU I have which can handle it decent with my 2600x on Ramanujan Machine. I've been doing a bit of RM and NFS on the 5800x while gaming since both projects are a lot...

    Do we know yet if we're going to throw the first javelin or not? I'm planning on adding a little to it but it seems I've pulled some work units that have a deadline of about 3.5 days.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    You just described the reason I say the first of the rebooted Tomb Raider games was by far the best. It was a very well done, tight story which integrated into the whole of the game to make it all feel like every quest mattered. It's a pity they lost that in the two later games by going for the...

    SETI.Germany's 15th Annual Pentathlon (2024)

    It's one of the reasons I've been running Primegrid lately. F@H pissed me off (again) but there's practically no medical projects around right now. The last time I tried WCG I couldn't even pull a work unit for CPU or GPU; although that's been a while now.

    It also indicates it will use around 20 MB of cache so it's probably good to keep that in mind. I haven't swapped over my Ryzen 2600x yet but I'm not sure if I'm going to since it only has 16 MB of cache.

    I don't have a Radeon VII but I've been using CoreCTRL for a few years now with RX570s and a 6750xt and never once have I had a problem with it. For reference I'm running Manjaro on both my systems.

    PrimeGrid Recognition Thread

    You all are definitely doing better than me. The best I've done is found two AP23s. One of the reasons I started running AP27 again (besides running it in the pentathlon last year) is because of the PPD. I have yet to run any GPU project on Primegrid which even comes close to the points AP27...

    Did Drivers Save The Radeon 8500?

    I had a Radeon 8500 and used it for quite a while. Never once had a problem with it and it ran everything I needed it to. I didn't replace it until the GeForce 7600GT. I will say that the Radeon 7500 AIW was actually a faster card in a number of games (a friend of mine had one and he had me...

    intel 13th and 14th gen xx900 and xx700 may have defective cores causing crashes in gaming

    Damage control. Even if the issue isn't Intel's fault Intel will be blamed for it by at least some people which makes for really bad press and damage to the company and brand which goes far beyond the cost of RMAs.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    Her face sure isn't. Based on the changes in her face from the first to the second game it looks like she put on 40+ lbs. And had plastic surgery to make her jaw even bigger.

    9950X and 9950X3D is going to be terrific.

    The most likely reason the x3d chips were released later is due to yields. The CCDs with the cache tend to be some of the best silicon due to the fact they need to run cooler with much more stringent voltages while still being able to clock relatively high. It takes time to stockpile those...

    Can i smoke in the same room where is pc?

    People have been smoking around computers for decades and it doesn't have any reduction in their ability to work. As I stated, the only thing you might need to do is clean it out more often. Smoke does leave residue and that residue will collect dust easier. Look up pictures of computers which...

    Can i smoke in the same room where is pc?

    No, it's not going to hurt the computer. At worst you'd need to clean the dust out more often.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    In the first game what it looks like is they took the child Aloy head and made it bigger and left it at that. Her face looks like it's still 4 years old with a bunch of baby fat and no maturing. It's been a while since I played the first game but at least in some of the screen shots for the...

    Best 360mm AIO Cooler?

    I have no experience with the 360 but I did buy and install the Frozen Edge 240 this past week. I had a little spare cash and needed an upgrade from my air cooler and it cost me $44 with tax. The only semi-recent experience with water cooling was an Enermax 240 AIO I got for practically free...

    Radiator bolts for slim fans?

    This is the exact same thing I've been doing for years. I have yet to not find what I was looking for or at least something else which would work. I also tend to buy extras and a couple other things because I know I'll end up needing it eventually.

    Ubisoft's The Crew is shutting down 31st March 2024 and will be unplayable after that because it is online only.

    I'm no fan of either company but what you describe has nothing to do with feudalism, techno or otherwise. Owning and selling a product on a marketplace is far different than feudalism. Under feudalism Apple and Amazon would own the product made by you and allow you a certain number to sell while...

    Net Neutrality expected to be reinstated after officials vote on 4/25/2024

    These "rules" aren't legislation. They are imposed upon us by an un-elected group of bureaucrats with delusions of grandeur overstepping the bounds of the powers given to them by Congress. One of the biggest problems with "net neutrality" in government form is the fact that it has never been...

    Ubisoft's The Crew is shutting down 31st March 2024 and will be unplayable after that because it is online only.

    Under feudalism peasants were effectively owned by the landowners, also known as nobles. Most couldn't even move without permission from the local noble. Peasants worked the land and were allowed to keep a portion of what they made. Said portion was determined by the nobles/landowners. I have...

    Core 0x23

    I don't normally run F@H on CPUs except during things like the event in January. I'll run BOINC stuff on them from time to time, mostly when a little extra heat is nice. The 6750xt was the main reason I stopped running F@H. A year ago it was getting 3.2 million PPD+ and by the time of the...

    Core 0x23

    One of the reasons I quit running F@H is because of the obvious points issues. In the last run in January it took a Ryzen 2600x, 1050TI, RX570, Ryzen 5800x and a Radeon 6750xt to equal the points the 6750xt was putting out by itself a year previous. All three GPUs were producing noticeably fewer...
