Bitcoin bitcoins requires integer math, and flops are a measure for floating point math. Cherry picking Gpu an application has a mix of gflops and short jobs. Thx, nothing to worry then. However with these 2 figures it can give you a better idea of what equipment to buy to reach certain GFLOPs eg get within Top Volunteers. Asteroids boinc Tracking Asteroids and their spin's. Post some update pictures, if you dont mind. I have noticed a strange 2 Jul
Similar for turnaround time. If so this is pretty normal most psu's that come with the machine are just barely over the line of being able to run the machine itself, smaller is cheaper and over the course of a run of building pc's even 10 cents per pc can add up. Since this post, I am now running: They can either all work on nearly identical variations of one single task, in perfect sync with one another, or nothing at all. Sign in with Discord. For example, the translucent windows in Windows 7, or technologies like Mac OS X's Quartz, which powers the Aqua desktop and its beautiful, water-like graphical effects and animations such as bulging the Dock in a smooth animation when the mouse is moved to the lower edge of the screen or "sucking" windows into the Dock when they are minimized - these are powered by GPUs. Also, my reports GFlops also at stock.
There are separate records per resource type. Nowadays, boinc blood gpu a stone. Reply Page 3 of 3. DarkRyder "May the Boinc be with you I'm sorry to see the hard feelings in this thread. Flair is currently enabled Bitcoins projects are you crunching? Gflops we may switch to a scheme where the client dynamically determines the For usage.
But I am soon for M - another two days should do it! Speaking from experience, most any user from any project with ridiculously high scores has at least one GPU involved. Likely a GPU involved Much less pain than a lot of other projects Why oh why are WCG such a pain?
Least recent post first Most recent post first. Well, I have to say something about this pseudo "Project" called Bitcoin Utopia It seems they now hook into ASIC based miner hardware that is very specific in application and can't be used for anything but bitcoin mining.
First of all, I always thought of and think of BOINC projects as being based in humanitarian and research projects of all types. Bitcoin Utopia itself is NOT a research project of any kind. No other project can use the bitcoin ASIC hardware for anything but bitcoins. Look at these outputs!! If you're trying to be "competitive" in any aspect with BOINC, you'll have to sink a lot of money into hardware. If you need the competitive edge, compare yourself to team members or friends, if you go at it on the open membership list you will set yourself up for disappointment.
I would just appreciate that fact that you're doing what you can to help researchers, and encourage others to do so as well. Even though you may not be dumping as much money and hardware into the BOINC projects as others are, your contribution of resources IS important, regardless of how powerful.
After all, that's kind of why grid computing got started in the first place To leverage the power of as many machines as possible, in order to reduce the need for dedicated and specialized computing equipment. It will be interesting to see how crypto-currencies play out in the long run, will the technology keep up with the mining needs?
If not, the profitability will disappear and so will a lot of miners who are interested in the profits, not supporting an open currency. All these projects require specialized hardware that is not ubiquitous within the realm of PC hardware. Regards, Krzysztof 'krzyszp' Piszczek Boinc Poland team member. John, I'm not weighing in on my opinion for or against the OP's opinions.
I will point out that you have a flaw in your statement here. Slice it how you want, but the truth is that they are taking their cut. ASIC is one kind of specific devices, so it can not be used in any other science projects. The stats from BU are just showing their strong mining power. I want to see the REAL science computing power, not mining power.
Bitcoin Utopia should be excluded. I completely agree with Tex in this project should not be allowed to give so much credit per work unit. Being it is a fund raising project it should be categorized differently. Even donate home didnt give out that many points. Quote message in reply?

You run the risk of seriously damaging the components, or even starting a fire. Does this sidebar need an addition or correction?
Gpu life expectancy on Boinc? What should i expect? A bit unrelated, but i'm getting one project done every min, is it normal?
Gamma-ray pulsar binary search, I have no idea if it's normal. The fans will likely need to be replaced before the electronics fail. You will be fine so long as you stay within the recommended temperature range and do not overvolt. Thx, nothing to worry then. Hope i find a neutron star one day! Manufactures provide thermal guidelines that you can reference for your particular component.
