11) Message boards : Problems and Help : Genefer Tasks All Coming Back Invalid (Message 143805)
Posted 254 days ago by Profile JamesProject donor
Apologies for the delayed response, can you try adding <ignore_intel_dev> to your cc_config.xml?
<cc_config> <options> <ignore_intel_dev>0</ignore_intel_dev> </options> </cc_config>


This should disable your Intel iGPU for BOINC

They claim 2x FP32 performance among other things, which sounds really good for now...

I was looking at the lineup and was hesitant on a 3070 given that it runs on GDDR6, as opposed to the 3080 and 3090 running on GDDR6X. If I remember correctly, most genefer tasks are memory bandwidth limited on Turing already, and Turing runs on GDDR6.

Ran my reservations, everything looks good.

Reserving D9&D11--MT SSE2&SSE4.1 Windows
How can I setup the app to use a different transform?

If you run the program with no parameters, it tells you:
Usage: ..\ap26_cpu_windows64.exe KMIN KMAX SHIFT -cputype -t # -cputype is used to force an instruction set. Valid types: -sse2 -sse41 -avx -avx2 -avx512. Default is highest available.

So to use sse2, you'd run
ap26_cpu_windows64.exe KMIN KMAX SHIFT -cputype -sse2

PROBLEM:

The program or feature from "C:\my_path_here\ap27_cpu_windows64.exe" cannot start or run due to the incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.


What happened?
I downloaded the application from here
but windows gave the error posted above when I try to run it in cmdline.

Which version of Windows are you running, and on what hardware? The windows binaries works fine on my 64 bit Windows. Wild guess here, but perhaps you got a corrupted download.

Check against:
File: ap26_cpu_windows64.exe CRC-32: 88802d51 SHA-1: 121ee27d10c355fb482db2800f54fc000082e22c SHA-256: 2443a2d2143a74e343bdb2522c4a4a034e125e823053bcf3c04317573368946d

A double check is still a double check :) Many have yet to even touch a prime MEGA task.

Better luck next time!

Yup, just make sure our posts dont flood it! That's the original reason this way was abandoned. *pls delete our posts*

It's no big deal, new posts don't hurt.

Cleanup:
Jul 9 07:00 UTC: 50 tasks outstanding; 2 affecting individual (2) scoring positions; 0 affecting team (0) scoring positions.
Jul 9 20:00 UTC: 36 tasks outstanding; 0 affecting individual (0) scoring positions; 0 affecting team (0) scoring positions. Standings are now final.
19) Message boards : Number crunching : GTX 1030 good card for GFN? (Message 141550)
Posted 338 days ago by Profile JamesProject donor


I have a few of these, but I wouldn't use them for anything other than GFN15, and even then they're pretty slow now... If I remember correctly, and it has been a while since I've run one so I might be wrong, an AP27 task takes about 90 minutes with them, so you're not particularly likely to get first.

BRUH.
Is it memory bandwidth limits or is my Vega 8 just too bad? AP27 takes freaking 16 hours to complete......

You are comparing a dedicated graphics card versus an integrated one. Not only is it constrained to a laptop's thermals, it also shares all its memory bandwidth with the CPU.


But I agree with GTX1650. It's a fine card for its price. If you have more money you'd consider RX5500XT too.

If you're buying a GPU solely for crunching and have no preference for which brand to buy from, Nvidia cards are usually slightly better at performing compute tasks while AMD cards have slightly better Linux driver support.
20) Message boards : Problems and Help : Overclock in 2020? (Message 141543)
Posted 338 days ago by Profile JamesProject donor
I saw a 3 years old topic talking about overclock a GPU to maximize crunching.

Is still a good advice to make a +5% overclock for core clock and -15% the memory clock?

What's the best setting in 2020?

Our usual stance on overclocking is "Don't do it unless you know what you're doing and know how to ensure a stable overclock".
Example from the Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi! Summer Solstice Challenge announcement post:
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.


Some GPUs on some subprojects are memory-bottlenecked (IIRC, 2080 is memory bottlenecked) so lowering memory clock won't help you.
