I just got major Problems on GFN - Tasks, one GFN 20 was finished, but also a lot of crashes, and i mean pc crashes and random restarts, i am now testing milkyway@home and for the last 60Minutes it looks fine.
(using Radeon 20.2.2)

Good Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

After one DYFL-WU crashing. ( https://www.primegrid.com/result.php?resultid=1087768658 )
I cant get any new GPU-WU i switched on all possible gpu wu in primegrid, set using gpu at all time in boinc and i dont get any new gpu wu. Not on any Project ( I tried Einstein@home, Milkyway@home, )

System is a 3700x with an (new) 5600xt

EDIT: Setting Back the Project solved the Problem

Moin,

thanks for the testing and please keep us up to the news, with the rx5600 out, i think i will upgrade in spring time and i dont want to go team green again.

Did anybody test the test the new driver (20.1.1.) over in the einstein-forum it looks like a solution.

I am also will get one in the next few weeks and would like to continue crunching.

Hello Everybody,

is the 2020 challenge series fixed by now?
Whenn will be the first challenge?

I don’t have a lot of experience with AMD CPUs, but I suspect that you will get the best results on SoB by first setting BOINC on your computer to “use 50% of the CPUs” and then setting the preferences on the website to “unlimited” for both “number of tasks” and “number of threads”. The 50% will cause it to only use the physical cores, which is what you want for LLR, and the unlimited settings will make it use all 6 cores on each SoB task.


This might be right and i read this often, but after all i want to test it, at least up to 321.

Just a little Test to determine how to got the most WU finished in a given Time.

All The Best

Yes, the solution was to deactivate XMP and Downclock the RAM to 2666mhz.

Hello Again,

yes, i think i will go with runtime, to see how many tasks i can complete in an given time, and if multi-threading is worth it or not, or on wich WU it is worth something or not.

I will share my findings, if any, with you.
But corruently I am trying to crunch some SOB's.

All The Best

Hello Michael,

thank you for the long and detailed answer.
My Goal is to check if multi-threading during LLR tasks is worth it.

So i will test this using CPU-Time and number of WU`s running simultaneously, to evaluate if i got more WU's done in a given time using Multi-Threading or not.

Hello, i am not sure if this is the right board to ask this question.
But can anybody tell me what difference between runtime and cpu-time is, regarding cpu tasks and gpu tasks?
