YES!!
Found one GFN - 16!

Phew.
The Vega 56 comes to the party LOL.


Ah you got me!
I was faster and slower at the same time...

I'll re-word this line to say: Very frustrating when you get these work units AFTER HOST 153120 as you have a much lower chance of returning it first.


If the work units are invalid, does it matter whether or not they are returned before yours?


Yes, because they have delayed the task.

Meanwhile your wingman has returned it first...

Can anything be done about bad hosts / users / PC's?

'Anonymous' has a PC that is constantly returning invalids for PPS - over 2150 this past week.

Not one valid or pending...

Very frustrating when you get these work units as you have a much lower chance of returning it first.

Thanks

I took some artistic liberty with the last name. Let me know what you think. :)


Crikey!

Mate I think she's a ripper!

Looking at the specs, the K5200 has 2304 CUDA cores and so does the new RTX 2070.

Does that mean the K5200 should do GFN at similar speeds to the 2070 or are the Quadro cards missing something else besides faster clocks and DDR6 memory?

I've got a chance to buy some lightly used Quadro cards - K5200 and K4200.

Are they any good for PrimeGrid, in particular GFN?

Thanks

Looks like Windows did an update just before the errors started.

Re-installed graphics drivers and all is good now.

Ended up getting a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC, 3 fans and its very quiet.

Doing GFN-21 in 24-25,000 sec.

Just swapped a GTX 970 from one PC to another, tried to run GFN and I get an error after 2 seconds:

Output file genefer16_20259418_0_r1191446169_0 for task genefer16_20259418_0 absent

Both PC's were doing GFN before the swap with no problems.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Looking to get an Asus RTX 2080 but they have 5 different models... (Turbo, OC, Strix Advanced, Strix Gaming, Strix OC Gaming)

They all have 2944 Cuda cores and 8GB memory but the clock speeds range from 1515MHz to 1890MHz.

For GFN tasks would you notice any difference between the cards?

Does the clock speed help or would they all be the same because they all have 2944 cuda cores?

There is a $370 spread from the Turbo to the Strix OC Gaming so I'm wondering if its worth spending the extra $$$.

Thanks
