With all the new h/w coming, I figure I have to share this.
Nice, is that a quad Opteron 12 core setup on the first rig? What board are you using?
I think that's 12 threads, just like i7 with HT'ing meets the 8 core requirement for -bigadv.
So, SR-2 or Quad G34? What's your opinion? Especially considering the 16 core Bulldozers around the corner.
4 x 12 cores @ 2.3. It's a supermicro H8QG6-F.
"-bigbeta -smp 48"
Edit: BUCK, you have 0 points for the day?
Three clients 1 mill PPD
I also missed that F150 is showing us that a single 6 core i7 will pull 120K with the -bigbeta.
That's what I meant
Msgclb is tracking it (I hope )
Geez, with all this H/W additions I can't wait to see our daily PPD (especially when I get my SR-2 also ).
The 980x @ 4.1, ram at 2230 mhz, it will do it in a little over 3 days. I still have to convert my other 980x @ 4.3 over to linux.
Looks like linux is the way to go now for me too, I only wish I could get the temp-monitoring sorted out. The frame time on normal -bigadv went down from 11:40+ mins to 9:30 mins on the SR-2.
What's going on skipper?
Sorry team but I switched all three rigs back to crunching. Want to help out in the current WCG challange
I'm in Wisconsin again for a week. I left 2 -bigadv running(cpu only). Everything will be back in full swing on Saturday morning.
Small problem here guys - Trying to get this SR2 set up...reports both cpu's in bios but in Windows the processor # selection is greyed out in cpu-z. Both cpu jumpers are to the left on the mb...what am I missing? (Eleet shows the same thing as well)
You need win7 ultimate or pro I think, home premium doesn't support that many cores.
Trying Win 7 Pro atm...
EDIT: Win 7 Pro did the trick. At work atm, will try Ubuntu install when I get home this evening. The link I have says "AMD 64" for Ubuntu...is that correct?
Follow Musky's guide at [H], make sure you use ext3 file system, and the only thing is Tear's thekraken wrapper is outdated at [H]. Here's a link to it. Good luck!
I couldn't pass up the chance of getting that $19.99 t-shirt but it only came with a CPU.
(It probably won't fit!)
I'll have that Core i7 970 CPU in a couple of days.
94F looks like the magic number for me. No Folding or Crunching at that temp or higher Will still go over night though!
Just an observation:
F150, I don't have any idea how long you've been Folding, but your stats with TPU have to make some sick, especially those who started with uni-processor clients. You have 6,106,378 points with only 100 WU's! That better than 61,000 points per WU, and that's only going to go up. Buck on the other hand has 89,583,923 points from 124,544 WU's. (even Bog, who is about to pass BUCK, has 15,000 fewer WU's.) That's 719.3 points per WU for Buck. (mine's at 525/WU)
I honestly think bonus points spelled the end for GPU Folding efficiency. Its such a waste to have a high end card Folding using ~300w just to make 17-20k/day when a CPU like an i7 can use half the power and make 2-3x the production- on the low end.
When upgrade time comes around this fall I will surely be looking into a computer that does DC only on the CPU (unless there are some major changes before then).
Agree with you there!
My stats for the other team was an average of 4750 per w/u, and thats not counting what I folded for default a year earlier.
I totally agree with you on this. I have three gtx480's, three gtx 580's, two gtx570's, and three gts 450's all sitting there collecting dust.
