1080ti is doing them in about 260 seconds👍 I’m sure Damien can let us know how long a 2080ti takes and Carl the Titan series.

Re: Crunching for Covid

Folding now running 1.5 Exaflops. That’s a lot of computing power. I couldn’t get folding WUs so have switched all my CPUs to Rosetta. Coming up on my 1st million. Again I’m in a high risk group so a vaccine would be greatly appreciated. Now in 10th day of social distancing. Slowly going stir crazy.

Some of the TRX40 boards are XLATX size as well. The new GIGABYTE TRX40 AORUS XTREME is a whopping £900 and massive. Big case needed for that piece of kit. I think perhaps in retrospect the AMD route is simpler and more efficient than dual Xeon. The 32c64t system should be about £6k so i better star...
