Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

And I've just this minute received an email from NVidia saying they were now available :lol:

ASUS and Gigabyte both had cards at £649.98 on Scan and EBuyer.

The RTX 3080 is a 320W card, temperatures seem to stabilise in the mid to high 70s when playing games according to one review I saw.

Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

They were all on pre-order by about ten past, the NVidia site went straight from "coming soon" to "notify me when in stock" :(

Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

Initial reviews are in, mainly games related (big improvement on 4k, pretty similar on 1440 and less as limited by the system) but there are some compute tests: https://www.computerbase.de/2020-09/geforce-rtx-3080-test/4/ Roughly 50% faster than a 2080ti running blender. https://hothardware.com/revi...

Thanks Tim, I doubt we'll make it through the next round (top 25) but you've got to be in it to win it :)

Re: Full Immersive Cooling: the future, now..

Hi Mark I wonder what will happen if there's a hard drive failure...or maybe a PSU fails...or a mobo catches fire? Of course there will be some redundancy built in, and maybe even some Halon gas extinguishers - but it'll be pretty expensive calling out an engineer to fix something !! regards Tim ht...

Re: 24 hour outage

I was trying to balance out my projects but the smaller ones don't seem to have much work at the moment.

I did also manage to pick up some of the beta tasks though.

Re: Nvidia 3xxx possible specs.

Hi Tim,

Swap two 1080s for a single 3070, 2/3 the power and 2.5 times the performance :)

.... or run it at 80% power for the same power as a 1080 but double the performance :D

.... or if you want to stay with 1080s, I may have a few going cheap in a couple of weeks :lol:

Re: Why Linux p*$$e$ me off....

That would be another option (and the reason why I haven't fixed my issue) You also need " <allow_remote_gui_rpc>1</allow_remote_gui_rpc> " in cc_config.xml and a remote_hosts.cfg file containing the URL of the controlling host. Then " /etc/init.d/boinc-client restart " to restart the client and get...

Re: Why Linux p*$$e$ me off....

127.0.0.1 is the localhost and usually works, it makes sense to eliminate any possible BM 'feature' just in case though. Until you're connected you can't add a new project as BM doesn't know which host it applies to. If the Boinc service is running, you could try running the Boinccmd commands rather...

Re: Why Linux p*$$e$ me off....

Carl is correct, 'localhost' is the right way to connect locally. I have a similar problem on one of my hosts (also a Linux 32 core Xeon coincidentally) but after a power cycle, BM just sits there "disconnected" rather than asking for a project. Usually selecting "localhost" as the computer to conne...
