Benchmark Scores They suck.
Why Ada? Just pop an old midrange Pascal in there and get crackin'! :rockout:

As for me, I'm a secret member here, as I use BOINC for Einstein@Home, which doesn't register as folding or crunching on TPU, but that's fine. :oops:

We do have a TPU team there, though.
Mainly for the efficiency. Because power, and now cooling that it's summer, is expensive here, I want to maximize the work units done per watt. Sounds silly, but it's one of the things I enjoy about crunching/folding. I've done both in the past, but I took a break for a while.

I'll have to look into Einstein@home, I've seen the name but don't know what type of research they're doing.

*edit*

lol. I guess it's not technically summer here, but it's been over 90F (33C) here this week, and it's just getting started. Almost time to need the AC to keep it at/under 78F/26C in the house.

Here. :) I've also used Milkyway@Home and Universe@Home in the past, but they only have CPU WUs, that's why I switched. Universe@Home doesn't even have a TPU team, unfortunately.

33 °C in May is hot! :eek: Here, in the middle of England, it's been about 5-10 °C cold and cloudy until about a week or so ago, so personally, I've never missed some sunny warmth so much.

Secret?? No secrets here ;) :D :D I'm there as well, as Milkyway, Rosetta and FAH.. Trouble with having so many different ones you can do.. Maybe I should have a machine for each and see how I go.... :D

I can't say I blame you on that one... I did a day when I had things running overnight (not everything but a fair amount!!) and I think the day ended and I was billed for 70kW alone in that one day.... If I go by the standard rate of charge for the kW here, that would be nearly £20 of electric... Utterly mental... Anyone care to do a guess of what it actually cost me??........

If you'd like I could add the stats in but I'm coming up to 6 years doing this in July and I'm feeling like I need a break from it! So if anyone would like that flame........

It's great to have you here :D I hope you enjoy your time!! And please feel free to put up some posts regarding the hardware setups and such for what you're doing, its all great to see and gives the forum in this area a bit of a wake up as it can be aside from me putting up the stats every day, a tad bit quiet...... :)

That was for the day! :) I think I had about 12 running, including a couple of Dell R730 servers... I was making the most of the power/price!! :D :D Just waiting for the next day to come across :) I'll see if I can grab a list of what's there :)
