I want to write SETI , but the utility of it is horrific since it didn't produce results in all these years. People are blaming it for global warming rolleyes.gif

Milkyway is my pick since we have a high concentration of AMD Radeons of the HD7900 / R9 280 series ; the CPU credits aren't too bad either but nowhere close.
OPINION (Click to show)
Milkyway@Home is going to hobble everyone without Tahiti (HD7900 series) / Cayman (HD6900 series) / Cypress (HD 5800 series) GPUs since it's OpenCL and double precision.

GPUGrid is going to gimp everyone without a Nvidia GPU. Xtremesystems has this project on lockdown since they have a whole forum for it.

Distributed Rainbow Table Generator + Collatz Conjecture are done all the time for credit spam. Do we really need to encourage more people to do those?

Primegrid seems pointless (IMO) since all you do is find a big number.

Moo! is more crypto stuff (RC5).

Thread link added to the main Pentathlon page. biggrin.gif

I'm actually quite partial to Dirt, we use some of those tables at work to encrypt stuff up so i'm one of those who really crunch it becasue it{s useful, but i can see why it is not useful for everyone, other than the reasons you stated.

SETI, while my oldest and preferred project, would need a lot to really keep up with a Pentathlon, unless they have changed as of lately. I remember the weekly maintenance that lasted 3-5 days, then 2 days of tasks. Rinse and repeat. I'm a bit surprised they offered that for the Pentathlon, considering we have to run it 5 days non-stop

It wouldn't be bad to get Milky, since we have a lot of Tahiti-based GPU muscle. Prime is also a bit biased towards Nvidia cards.

MILKYWAY for the WIN

My second favorite project. Nice points and I have 2 6970s and a 7970 that can crunch that nicely.

Milky Way ! I'd love to do Seti work units but yes it'll probably be down at precisely the wrong time.
post #7 of 12
Milkyway or mooWrapper! seems like a good choice. They both seem to put up some pretty good points. Both are good on AMD, no? I got 4 Tahitis I can dedicate to this.

Looks like I'll be gaming on my ol' GTX295 for those two weeks. lol Mostly been playing Feed The Beast anyhow, so no biggie.

Just to put it out there: Pentathlon goes by team rank in a project over the days that he project is counted. It doesn't go by points earned.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Rules > Awarded points

Points will be awarded to the first 25 teams for every discipline. The champion of a discipline will collect 100 points. The exact division of points:

  1. 100
  2. 90
  3. 80
  4. 70
  5. 63
  6. 60
  7. 57
  8. 54
  9. 51
  10. 48
  11. 45
  12. 42
  13. 39
  14. 36
  15. 33
  16. 30
  17. 27
  18. 24
  19. 21
  20. 18
  21. 15
  22. 12
  23. 9
  24. 6
  25. 3


The team which is able to collect the highest number of points in all 5 disciplines will win the BOINC Pentathlon. This also means that the champion may get a maximum number of 500 points.

Of course, also the champions of the single disciplines are being honored. Therefore teams have the possibility to reach for the pedestal in a single discipline if they don't see a chance for themselves to succeed in the overall placings. In the end, they are being honored as well.
