I can't believe what I got for Christmas from my brother and sister-in-law. I don't know what I'm going to do with a Coach purse. *shakes head and feels guilty*

We've got that cold arctic air bearing down on us. It's a balmy 13 today. We might hit sub-0 temperatures on night. Like I said. I put on a coat. I hate coats and do everything in my power to avoid them.

It's going to be in the mid to upper 40's here at my place today then drop down into the upper 30's for highs thru the New Year. People here have cleaned out the grocery stores like a hurricane is coming or something!! I had a fan installed on my gas fireplace and I have it on keeping the house warm during the day.

They're talking about lows below zero. We only about 4 inches of snow. But other places got it but good.

I'm winning in the snow.

Happy New Year to everyone, too!

Hey Mikey. Tried doing a bit of optimization. Using:
verbose=0
kernels_per_reduction=64 or 48 depending on machine
sleep=1
threads=9 or 10, depending on machine
lut_size=18
reduce_CPU=0
sieve_size=29
cache_sieve=0

So far so good.

I use:

sleep=1
reduce_cpu=0

for nvidias from 750ti to 1060

That's really good for the both of you!!! NOW have you tried running more than one unit at once on the best cards?

<app_config>
<app>
<name>collatz_sieve</name>
<max_concurrent>2</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.25</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

This won't work very well on cards like the 750Ti either the 1gb or the 2gb variety, but for a 1060, with 3gb+ and up it might. One problem I'm having right now is I have my resource share at zero and it will only get one workunit despite the app_config.xml file above. I'm working on Ammicable Numbers and GpuGrid right now and my gpu's are only here when they can't get work elsewhere. I do have 2 gpu's here full time...an Nvidia 1060 and a 2gb 750Ti. I will try the app_config.xml on the 1060 and let you know how it goes.

[edit]I tried ir on my 1060 and it raised the gpu usage to 100% and the fan temp to 82C and the unit length is JUST under double, so yes there is a benefit but not enough for me so I went back to one workunit at a time on the 1060. [/edit]

I had a try to run double wu on my 1060 and came to the conclusion that the benefit is somehow...unsteady

imho 1060 and 1050 are the best cards for boinc wu's---more powerful GPUs are too hot, too greedy and demand special tricks for 100% charge

I'm running a mix of cards - from 950 to 1070. In my unfortunate case, they're mixed in the machines, too. I need to do some reconfiguration so I can optimize for similar cards in a machine. Won't be soon though. And, I'm winning :)

I too have a wide range of cards, My Nvidia ones include several 750Ti's, a 760, 2 980's, 3 1060's and 2 1080Ti's. I also run a few AMD/ATI cards a 7970 a 480 and a 5870. I spread them all out across several projects though so one project doesn't see them all.
I am winning!!

Message 24686 - Posted: 4 Jan 2018, 15:02:26 UTC - in response to Message 24685.

Hey, Mikey, what is your opinion of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti? I bought one to upgrade a MacPro 4,1 that didn't have a spare internal power cable (an AMD/ATI 5870 was using both). The 750Ti generated >600K in Collatz credits in the first 24 hours, which compares quite favorably to the ~750K/day generated by an NVIDIA GTX 680 and the ~800K/day generated by an NVIDIA GTX 770. So, from my perspective the GTX 750Ti is an energy efficient way to boost crunching capacity.

On a related question, I have two GTX 960s that require only a single internal power cable. I can't seem to find any more of these units, as my previous vendor (MacVidCards.com) no longer stocks them. Any suggestions? IMHO, a combo 960/750 MacPro 4,1 would be a great solution for a stable workstation/BOINC cruncher.

I am still lusting after a Cubix Xpander Desktop Elite Gen 3 with 4 Titan Xps. But I can't justify spending that much on crunching. :-)
