Well, the Dutch Power Cows are SOL because this Dutchman rather crunches with his mates of TPU!
That's the spirit!
Here at TPU, we unite everyone under a common bond---Russian (Daimus), Dutch (you), American (Mindweaver and many more) or Canadian (mjkmike and others). We're a multinational winning team
Twenty five million again--great work Team!
Another great job--#4 once again!
The Dutch Power Cows have fallen before the mighty TPU!
Up next: Clubic!
Another picture of the Norwegian landscape:
Damn, what a beautiful country
Great Work Team!!!!
I suspect that there may have been a bit of a backup on the WCG Validation server today. Nonetheless, great work everyone--we've done well once again!
Comfortably #4---just like normal
Something a little different tonight
Congratulations fellow crunchers! on overtaking DPC and moving up to 16!
that pic is interesting! is that a huskie ? they are among my favorites...
Great work team! I didn't so much in the way of pts today but its great to see the team rocking it like All-Stars
There are days for all of us when we can't do maximum output, so the Team helps even this out a bit
Everyone seems to be down a bit today, but our results are still damn impressive!
Our standing in the world is impressive again today!
We're favored to overtake Clubic in just over four days!
Nice work team. lets keep it up
Hey guys, I have a noob question as I am new:
How do I get my GPU to work for BOINC? Right now its working with my CPU only... i got a 7970. I know that not all projects support GPU computing but I thought I read that WCG supports it. Thanks.
Have you read through this thread yet by any chance?
Linky to multi gpu
Well the first page has some huge red numbers and then there are 288 pages of stuff that I dont feel like reading
First page is the main page to read as it tells you how to get your 7970 up to speed on gpu crunching.
Also make sure you have gpu crunching enable in you profile on wcg site. After you read through the first page on the thread i linked and if your still having problems post back in that thread so we can get you going.
Thanks for the info, i believe I haven't set GPU crunching on the wcg site as you suggested. Also, I can't see any link in any of your two replies to me
Unless I missed it, you forgot to post the link. I'm assuming you mean this one:
Now another question... Is there a way to run WUs on both CPU and GPU at the same time?
Fixed my post. I though i put the link in sorry.
Yes but you don't want to
You card can run 12 GPU units at the time (front page again) and a GPU unit needs at least ½ thread so in theory you could run 2 CPU units on the side but on the expense of longer production time for the GPU units. You could make the experiment for a couple of days for 12 GPU and 0 CPU units and with 12 GPU units and 2 CPU units and you will find the first is producing more points-
The setup software settings would be
12, 12 and 8 for pure GPU and
14, 12 and 8 for GPU and 2 CPU
Oh alright. I guess i'll stick with 8-12 WU's on the gpu and zero on CPU.
FYI- WCG is about to go through a shutdown (tomorrow iirc). This means:
- load up your buffer with work
- don't panic if your work won't report or upload right away
The shutdown will likely last for 24 to 36hrs or so
Thanks for the reminder. I need to make sure I get everything back up and running before this outage happens!
Up a million and a half points from yesterday!
The next few days are probably going to be rough, as we deal with server maintenance, but we'll bounce back quickly enough
(anyone else think that this looks like the Royale theme background for WinXP?)
Great job Team!
FreeDC hasn't updated yet- will post the stones and pie as soon as they do.... or a draft with what's available within the hour
