Start: 17  Goal: 16  Current: 13

Start: 0  Goal: 1  Current: 5

 

We killed the goals so far in Einstein and CSG, I had no idea what to expect in Acoustics :rolleyes:

 

For May I am thinking just making the 5 Pentathlon projects the POMs.  The Pentathlon starts 5/5, which means we get the Marathon project to stockpile starting 4/30 (unless it's a project with short turn around or a mess like last year.  We will all be focused on this through 5/19, and probably still running out downloaded work even then.

mmonnin Since I've been using 4 threads of my 3770k for [email protected] there are only 4 left for CPU work and it does less work than my 3570k. I ends up not doing a whole lot of work compares to the 2P so I've been collecting some hours here and there. I've been squeezing 8 threads down those 4 cores for WUProp hours. Right now I'm running Yafu since it has 4 apps. I was running a Q66 with a GTX570 for awhile to do just WUProp hour collection. Thats how I got all the PrimeGrid apps/badges completed.

WhiteWulfe I have four stars myself, and I'm a quarter of the way to my fifth. For a while I did push somewhat obsessively towards getting them but man, after a while... I'll just let them slowly build up, especially since most projects only have a single application.

I just got my 5th star in the past 24 hours. WUProp also gathers the run time info to compared hardware performance.

 

I have 4 stars, 1/2 way to my 5th star.  I found myself obsessively running prime number projects with multiple variations to try and collect stars for a while, now that I have stopped doing that it may take a year to collect that 5th star without some more new projects showing up.

I've also installed WuProp on this rig to see what it's all about. Will put it on my others later.thumb.gif

Just broke 1mil in CSG:Wildlife. Regularly getting over 2k per task at the end before they ran out with 44 left to validate.

More tasks are available now, my machines have a full queue again, but according to the server there is only a little over 200 left. I hope it can keep up, at my current pace I can hit 5 million by months end.

4thKor I've been working on optimizing Einstein on my dual 980 rig with an i5 processor. Seems 4 tasks per card are doing quite well at just over 10 min avg per. App config is .25 GPU, .5 CPU.

mmonnin They are out of work anyway. I noticed I've been getting some WCG work as a backup project. Acoustics is still out as well.
