Great job. And those are just your "spare" computers, right ?


Yes my "spare" computer (Ryzen 5700G) is an experiment (GPU).

Hi Eudy,

yes for GFN-18 it depends much on "getting the task first".
In August I had so much luck (4 megas in a row) that this GFN-18 should be yours ;)

We (all?) have the right, e.g.:
https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=3385
is the thread: "Badges / Credits / Milestones"

You can see it in the URL of your browser.

For "finding primes" you can do a few things:

1. Set your work buffer to zero. If you download hundreds of tasks ... the tasks will start when the wingman has already finished his work and you will always be the second to none.
2. Use multi threading if possible. 2 cores => 2 threads, 4 cores => 4 threads, 6 cores: fiddle out what is better 2*3 or 1*6, for 8 cores it is (mostly) better to use 2*4, only the big ones (SOB) may work better with 1*8 threads.
3. Don't span WU threading over more than one socket (server boards), or one CCX (AMD-Ryzen), e.g. a Ryzen-3700x (8 cores, 2 CCX) runs better with 2*4.
4. DeleteNull rule: Avoid BOINC software mismatches. If there is only one WU (4 threads) running on a 6700k the cc_config.xml has a setup with: <ncpus>1</ncpus>.
Otherwise BOINC downloads much WU you don't want (s. 1.)

I see that DeleteNulll (3 'L's) has contributed to our team effort.
(bows to his remarkable effort on other fronts...)

g


Just to say hello. Another WU will finish in a few (or more) hours but the third L after the challenge ;)

I had never noticed the triple "L".


Preparing the challenge I thought that there is probably a problem with this name confusion. After the third beer I decided for the third L.

@DeleteNull - will you be upset if the few units you generate here would've helped SG?


No. Both boxed didn't take part in the previous challenges. So this is just a small addition for "Aggie The Pew" to say "Hello!" and not a minus for SG ;)
