i haz a sad
^^So I have to pull an all nighter.
Yes Seti-G has 287 active users and only a few of them uses GPU. We would lose big time on CPU power alone.
I just brought everything I have here up and running...... I should be able to pull in another 10-15k ppd.
Considering "borrowing" my son's laptop for another 2c/4t but I don't think the wear and tear from crunching on it for 2 days will bring that much to the Team
Don't underestimate laptops. I have one that have done close to 1.2 M. Ok the back plate is off and I have a big fan 2" away. Ion is running one 24/7 too I think. But I wouldn't use other peoples (son's) laptop for the noble cause.
I also have his new one (Christmas present ) in the closet.... Soooo tempted to "test" it for a day or two.
So I'm down to running on my 2600k only, and I feel so slow. I guess this is the real cruncher life; I was spoiled starting out. I'm now doing things other than just HCC though, which is nice I guess. I do feel though that HCC was perfect because I've had more family members fight, struggle, and lose to cancer than anything else I can think of, put together. Sucks!
Anyway, I suppose that til the gpu WUs are back in full force, I'll be just putting along. The only plus side is I'm back on my Windows 8 installation, which is nice to be on again.
2600K is no slouch in WCG
Keep a watch out for more gpu wu's to appear.... maybe WCG will rollout a beta for gpu's to test some aspect of them for another project. There are quite few crunchers on the WCG forum following the gpu threads atm and a lot of them want their wu's back.
I have one rig left running them, and it won't last long. Went to WCG and enabled all projects for now.
One of the Tech's at WCG posted an update:
WCG is working with the HCC researchers to get some work back into the system.... 1 day to 1 week is the initial estimate and this is not the end of the project.
Unfortunate for our current challenge but not for the project itself
Three, actually. A Core 2 Duo Dell, a Core 2 Duo Thinkpad, and my new i7 Thinkpad. Both of the C2Ds do just fine--but the i7 does run a bit warm.
Thanks for the update
I'm really hoping that it's more towards the 1 day than the 1 week...oh well. I'll switch the i7-920 over to other projects when it runs out of WUs tomorrow
I have 2 laptops that I may still run- both have 2 core/4 thread CPU's
Older one (2010)
Core i3-350M w/AMD dedicated gpu
Newer one (2012)
Core i5-3210M w/NV dedicated gpu
Have no idea how well they would crunch???
I pull about 1k PPD/C2D and just shy of 4k from my i7. I'd say you should get a bit over 2k from the i5--not counting the GPU. A tad less from the i3-maybe 1.6-1.8k
What are the GPUs?
512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 560v
(upgraded between ordering/shipping was supposed to be a HD 4530 originally)
Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 2GB
All parents in the world seem to hide the gifts to children in the closet (me too)
Jokes aside, Seti-Germany has a chance to win.
I've borrowed daughter's dual-core, son's dual-core and wife's dual-core notebook.
I'm afraid it will do little.
Shhhh!.... don't tell them
Agreed that SG has a chance to win but remember this:
- We rocked their world for nearly 5 days of this challenge
- We did what we did with 1/3 of the active members they have
- If they want it, they will have to earn it.
- They are not Team TPU so we win.... Automatically!
-we do not have two Ion's crunchers
-our Team's ppd before starting GPU WU was (Shhhh!).
Сorrect me, if I forgot something.
Anyway we have no right to give up.
That's what I was trying to say Keep em crunching!!!
** EDIT- will also get a chance to find out what this FX-8350 Vishera chip can do w/o hiding in those gpu wu's **
Unfortunately my Vishera's delivery is delayed.
Thanks for adding those new dual-core rigs, I appreciate it
We've done an amazing job for a team our size
Unfortunately so. I'm down to two i7s now and that's it
But we still have a bunch of pending GPU WUs that will buffer us for a little while
Even if we don't hold them off, the push we gave in the last month or so with the amount of active members we have is just remarkable. Definitely something I know rocked the DC world!
Man that sucks! Hope the delay is not too long.
This Vishera vs Bulldozer feels like the PII Thubans felt vs the PII Denebs (the C2 revisions)...much smoother/snappier performance and cooler running
FYI- I will also have at least one laptop crunching tonight (probably the newer one). Needs to be "tested" right?
Warm up your gpu's Team- let's get them All
Well I might as well game the rest of today, so I can throw my gpus back into HCC tomorrow. At least it didn't take a week
app_info will be reinstated tomorrow morning UTC
