tictoc 2019 Pentathlon main thread: https://www.overclock.net/forum/365-...th-2019-a.html

tictoc I don't think any project has to be Quorum 2. Sprint and Javelin require Quorum 1, since those disciplines are run for a shorter duration.

I agree on RakeSearch. Hopefully everyone stays away from that as an option.

Amicable would be kind of interesting. I think I was running 8x to max out a 1070 the last time I ran it. I never ran it on a CPU, so I'm not sure if the net gain is big enough to justify running it on the GPU (and using up 1 CPU thread/task) while other CPU projetcs are being crunched.

mmonnin Quorum 2 choices for CPU are a wreck. Rakesearch can't keep up with a smaller event like Formula BOINC Sprint. That will end up being a battle of who can grab the most tasks right away before the server catches fire.

The other option is Amicable Numbers. They have a GPU app but from reading their forums it takes quite a few tasks to load up the GPU. Like 7-8+ and they all use a full CPU thread. Its basically CPU bound and the GPU utilization keeps dropping as the # range it checks against grows. I guess if there is no other GPU project happening at the same time the GPUs could be run there too even though its listed as a CPU event.

skivelitis Can't wait! Time to clean out the dust bunnies. Need to finally retire my old GTX 560 and upgrade to a GTX 1660 or maybe a 1660ti.
1st time running the Pentathlon with OCN, regardless of the voting, my cores are the team's cores for the duration!

I guess that's expected when moving to clunky forum software that's 10 years old.
