Welcome to the Great Conjunction Challenge

The ninth and final challenge of the 2020 Series will be a 10-day challenge marking the extraordinarily rare astronomical event known as the Great Conjunction. The challenge will be offered on the GFN-18, GFN-19, and GFN-20 subprojects, beginning 21 December 13:22 UTC and ending 31 December 13:22 UTC.

In astronomy, "conjunction" describe meetings of planets and other objects on our sky’s dome. The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn is already underway and highly conspicuous in the west after sunset each evening. On December 21, the pair will be only 0.1 degree apart. Great Conjunctions happen every 20 years; the last one was in the year 2000. But these conjunctions aren’t all created equal. The 2020 Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest since 1623 and the closest observable since 1226! 2020’s extra-close Great Conjunction won’t be matched again until March 15, 2080.

Or, if you prefer a different completely real and equally scientific field...

In astrology, a conjunction is when the vibrations of two planets blend and work together. Both planets are associated with authority, but each very differently. Jupiter is a generous leader who’s associated with health, wealth, and having a good time, while Saturn favors strict responsibility and setting limits. A Great Conjunction represents a time for you to release old habits in order to make way for new ways of doing things. If you aren’t open to change, it can feel uncomfortable. But if you are, you can make incredible progress toward dreams you’ve held onto for a long time. For best results, choose a big, juicy goal that’s been calling to you for a while and spend as much time as you can in 2021 working toward it.


Sources: EarthSky, AstroShaman

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the GFN-18 and/or GFN-19 and/or GFN-20 subprojects in your PrimeGrid preferences section.

Note: The deadline for some of these WUs is longer than ten days, so make sure your computer is able to return the WUs within the challenge time-frame. Only tasks issued AFTER the start time and returned BEFORE the finish time will be counted.


Application Builds

    IMPORTANT: Overclocking -- including factory overclocking -- on Nvidia GPUs is very strongly discouraged. Even if your GPU can run other tasks without difficulty, it may be unable to run GFN tasks when overclocked.

    Supported platforms:
  • Windows: Nvidia GPU (OpenCL): 32 bit, AMD/ATI GPU (OpenCL): 32 bit, CPU: 64 bit, 32 bit
  • Linux: Nvidia GPU (OpenCL): 32 bit, 64 bit, AMD/ATI GPU (OpenCL): 32 bit, 64 bit, CPU: 64 bit, 32 bit
  • Mac: Nvidia GPU (OpenCL): 64 bit, AMD/ATI GPU (OpenCL): 64 bit, CPU: 64 bit, 32 bit




A Cautionary Reminder

    ATTENTION: The primality programs Genefer (for CPUs) and GeneferOCL (for GPUs) are computationally intensive; so, it is vital to have a stable system with good cooling. It does not tolerate "even the slightest of errors." Please see this post for more details on how you can "stress test" your CPU, and please see this post for tips on running GFN on your GPU successfully.

    As with all number crunching, excessive heat can potentially cause permanent hardware failure. Please ensure your cooling system is sufficient.

    GFN-18 WU's are currently averaging 6.5 hours on CPU and 30 minutes on GPU.
    GFN-19 WU's are currently averaging 3.5 days on CPU and 1.75 hours on GPU.
    GFN-20 WU's are currently averaging 25.5 days on CPU and 5 hours on GPU.
    For a general idea of how your GPU stacks up, you can have a look at the fastest GPUs list.

    If your CPU is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Overclocking your GPU is not recommended at all for GeneferCUDA. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to run Genefer. :)

    Please, please, please make sure your machines are up to the task.



Time zone converter:


    The World Clock - Time Zone Converter

    NOTE: The countdown clock on the front page uses the host computer time. Therefore, if your computer time is off, so will the countdown clock. For precise timing, use the UTC Time in the data section to the left of the countdown clock.



Scoring information


    Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER December 21st 13:22:00 UTC and received BEFORE December 31st 13:22:00 UTC will be considered for credit.

    In this challenge we will be using the same scoring algorithm as we use to determine BOINC credits, including bonuses! Because the score bonuses are included in the challenge score, it is advantageous to run the longer tasks if you can manage to finish them within the 10 day challenge window. This will land you a higher position in the leaderboard and therefor a higher score on the overall leaderboard.



At the Conclusion of the Challenge


    We kindly ask users "moving on" to ABORT their WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING WU's alows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of a challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either completing what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)

Best of Luck to everyone!

as mentioned in the first post of the thread: start crunching on the GFN-18, GFN-19 and GFN-20 subprojects, beginning 21 December 13:22 UTC; earlier downloaded workunits does not count to the challenge; report at least one or more workunits before the ending 31 December 13:22 UTC and you are in :)

I am running on i7-8650U CPU @ 1.90GHz. Why are my estimated times for the Genfer19 Tasks at 50 days; Genfer 18 at 10 days, and Genfer 20 at 200 days? At those completion times, I will never get any credit for this challenge

You are running 8 tasks on a 4-core processor. Set usage limit to 50% of the CPU.
On this processor, 4 GFN-20 can be completed during this challenge.

I am finding myself hitting a very hard cache wall on some of my CPU tasks running GFN 18's

For example when i set it to run 50% with boinc on a 3950x i was seeing task times that were almost twice as long as on my 3900x tasks. I am pretty sure this is a cache wall because i lowered this to 37.5% boinc usage and with 12 tasks running the task times improved by almost 50% faster. This however means i am leaving 4 cores idle which is not ideal. I am wondering if it would be possible to specify 2 cores per tasks in an app_info.xml or similar? If so does someone have the details of the commands needed. Thanks!

The best throughput for the 3950X and 5950X seems to be 12 tasks.
The only CPU GFN that can be multi-threaded is GFN21.

Hmm thanks for clarifying and confirming what i figured was the case. Its a shame how this basically hamstrings my 3950x I also think my first gen Ryzen is having similar struggles do you happen to have recommended task numbers for Ryzen 7 (1700 / 1700x / 1950x)

Since I haven't tested, or seen anyone else test, I can only make a guess here.
But I would say 6-8 tasks on the 1950X and 4-6 tasks on the 1700 and 1700X.

I only just discovered this over on the Discord chat. I have been playing around with settings and app_config.xml for hours.

On the front page they recently indicated with footnotes which subprojects support multithreading. The lack of such a footnote for GFN18 etc. means they do not support multithreading. /JeppeSN

Reward for effort is imminent, just who..... is the question ;)

Nice work. The relative increase for GFN-20 is even larger, considering its base is only 1/6 of that of GFN-18. You could plot the slope to show that.

Nice work. The relative increase for GFN-20 is even larger, considering its base is only 1/6 of that of GFN-18. You could plot the slope to show that.

Valid point, but the day over day change is not notably different, GFN18 is the clear winner there.


GFN20 does edge out relative to where the leading edge actually is, but not by too much.


GFN19 just lags behind. It's probably worth noting for future years that combining more than two different projects together in this way during a challenge will lead to at least one of them sparsely being chosen due to the others being more advantageous from a pure optimization perspective.

12 hours left in the challenge! Some friendly reminders... :)

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

When the challenge completes, we would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the WU's (and then UPDATE the PrimeGrid project) instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of a Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

Likewise, if you're shutting down the computer for an extended period of time, or deleting the VM (Virtual Machine), please ABORT all remaining tasks first. Also, be aware that merely shutting off a cloud server doesn't stop the billing. You have to destroy/delete the server if you don't want to continue to be charged for it.

Thank you!

Also, if you abort WUs on a VM, make sure to report them (click the "Update" button) before destroying the VM. I've failed to do that at least twice.

That's true, I assumed it was because people with slower hardware, like me, chose GFN-18, while those with top hardware just go for the GFN-20. But it might also have to do with GFN-18 working sort of well on CPU. Actually, more during the challenge it had more CPU than GPU tasks.

I predict a spurt in 19s during the final hours as people try to shoehorn in what they can as further optimisation.

A few days ago, GFN-19 was calculated with OCL3 in approx. 50 minutes (using GTX 1660 Super).
Today, GFN-19 was calculated with OCL2 and it took more than 1h 20m.
Is it going to stay like this?

Yes.

GFN-19 recently passed the OCL3 limit, and now must use OCL2 going forward. Unless you get a resend of an older GFN19, everything will be on OCL2 from now on.

Other than difficulty, time, other priorities etc why not use CUDA? Would it provide any improvements?

The results are final!
(actually, just the top three right now. the rest still may be decided by cleanup tasks.)

During these 10 days, we completed almost 350 thousand tasks. The most popular subproject was GFN-18, while the least popular by far was GFN-19. In addition to 4 new GFN-18 primes, we also averaged about 12 times these projects' typical output.

A RECORD BREAKING 171 teams and 930 individuals participated in the Challenge.

Top Three Individuals:
1. tng
2. Viktor Svantner
3. KajakDC

Top Three Teams:
1. Czech National Team
2. Antarctic Crunchers
3. SETI.Germany

Hopefully everyone had a chance to actually watch the Great Conjunction! This Challenge wraps up PrimeGrid's 2020 Challenge Series. In addition to being the first Challenge Series I oversaw as challenge coordinator, it was also a wild and rapidly adjusting one due to the current state of the world. Thanks for sticking with us through it all, and I hope these challenges provided you all with a fun little escape each month from the 2020-ness of it all.

The next Challenge to kick off the 2021 Series is the Good Riddance 2020! Challenge, which starts January 14th. We hope to see you there! Thank you again to everyone. We appreciate your participation and hope you had fun!
