That is amazing
Whatever happened to the "run what ya brung" mantra?
So my "turbo" was more "NOS" than turbo and my tank is now empty. just guessed lucky on the sprint and had a nice 8 day plus bunker built up
Nothings special to see here.
...or you mean "how deep is your pocket?" mantra ,
So about twice as fast as a VII - not bad, but considering the cost...
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 things up during a sprint = priceless
Pro tip: just tell her it's 50% off.
Mine goes like " get 4 more"
Works every time
So I took your words, tried to order one.
They said "you'd need 2 fuken warehouse of chips for 1 card"
phoenicis - would you do me a favor? If you still have access to the Tesla, can you run a few Einstein at 2x to see what's the run time on it? 2 concurrent tasks
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 only drawing 135W against a max of 300W. In contrast, when I was running MW yesterday the stated power draw was well over 200W.
Damned inflation A chip used to be worth something!
Thank you, sir! Looks like Einstein is really exclusive for AMD
My grandma said "you better eat them chips, son. You looked skinny"
She doesn't know I've been starving for the last 6 months. Damn AMD took all my chips
GPUGrid has been chosen.
Another crappy project with limited hardware support for only Nvidia GPUs (and not any new ones either lol).
FB needs to be re-organized and learn how to properly choose Projects with better hardware support for Sprints. Sorta takes the fun out of FB.
Have fun guys!
No kidding. 90% of my GPUs are AMD. So it seems I'm sitting this one out.
In their defense; there aren't a whole lot of good BOINC projects to choose from anyway.
Yes in Formula-BOINC's defense this is true as Skillz stated. We had a couple good years of projects popping up out of the woodwork that had good support and tons of work. Now, we are stuck with a few good legacy projects and a ton of home-brew projects that seem to be ran off of a home PC with a hobbyist for an admin rather than dedicated paid staff. GPUGrid has outlived itself as it at one time was a pretty solid project. Now they have limited support to work with. And worse... they know they have an abundance of hardware just thrown at them that they can pretty well just do what they want as they have.
FB has always had major flaws. But unfortunately, they now are heavily limited with what they have to work with.
Yeah, I'm not even talking workload support. I'm talking more hardware support, as in what you can use to run the project.
Either way, I see all sides have good points. And FB helps some of these little projects who normally wouldn't get this kind of user involvement either.
Just frustrating at times for everyone it seems.
Yeah... IIRC YAFU is or was ran off of a laptop. I could be completely wrong or it may have changed but it goes to show that some of this stuff is certainly not meant for the masses to focus a challenge on. It would be great if admins could learn the limitations of their environments before signing off on some of this stuff. FB doesn't ask the projects from what I have seen, so that is on FB IMO. The DC-Vault didn't do it until I came along and made that just part of the practice.
In case anyone missed it, SETI@home is the sprint.
but at least YAFU is transparent on that; rating itself as Alpha-stage to test new BOINC software. The only math project I kind of like a bit ... because of its name ? Or because of its intend to test software ? Don't know ...
The team has moved up to 4th place.
We are now at 5th in SETI@home sprint. Need all the help we can get in the next 30 hours.
Got some spare GPUs or CPUs? The ETs are hiding somewhere.
Nice little race we are having here. close fight till the end.
Yeah, keep those rigs crunching till the last second.
Closed on 5th, 10pts.
Good job guys
