Wow. I see a lot of people from other projects. Hello from Bucharest, Romania. Just managed to make Boinc working again on my Mac so my GPU/CPU started giving some love back.


Greetings! from the high desert of New Mexico in the United States.

Hi Eric,

Does AMD or Nvidia offer better performance? How would you rate the performance between your 3 GPUs: GTX 1660, GTX 1050, and the unidentified AMD Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X/590]

Is there any difference in CPU utilization between GPU apps?

It appears the Turning based Nvidia cards have good performance, so I have been looking at a 1660 series card to replace an aging AMD 7970.

Thanks,
Matt

The beta apps are functioning as intended, yes?

Will we see a Windows app for opencl_amd?

Hope you guys get the GPU-app running soon.


GPU apps are available for linux-x86_64+cuda, linux-x86_64+opencl_amd, and win_64+nvidia_opencl: https://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/apps.php

Just enable "Run test applications" in your project preferences.

A couple months ago, I updated this project to use https. Now I am receiving the following notice, "This project is using an old URL. When convenient, remove the project, then add http://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberField/"

Is it safe to ignore?

Does "Too many errors (may have bug)" mean this workunit has already been flagged?
