Re: Mindmodelling has work!

John's site is also showing wrong totals for the team. The top row is zero at the moment. Hi Chris I believe that the ubtstats website "scrapes" the data from the team pages and hence if the MM website isn't updating correctly, so ubtstats won't be updated correctly either. I was rather hoping yest...

Re: Mindmodelling has work!

Hi Mark Given that my CPUs on this weekends' Einstein Sprint are not earning many credits, I've grabbed some MM tasks with the hope that maybe we can rise in the Marathon table with some extra credits on MM... The Top 10 on the MM side of things is as follows: Pos. Team Points Year 2018 credits Tota...

Hi Tim, Hi Mark So, they'll be really cheap then ;-) Oh no, they'll be "pre-conditioned" and "run in" so you'll pay a premium :P You pay more for "extra features" :lol: I could call them i970s and sell them for £1,000!

Ah, the Xeons don't score much compared to a GPU, I'll just upgrade my remaining 900 series cards to 1080Tis :lol:

Hi Mark

Can I have first dibs on any 900 series cards you might be decommissioning ? (I really cannot afford any 10xx series cards for now).

Re: Leaving UBT for WCG

Hi Chris

Thanks for the heads up.

It is a shame that WCG hasn't got more UBT members enthused about their project...it's certainly more worthwhile than some other projects, that's for sure...

Re: Pick a number - GTX1180 / GTX2080 / RTX2080

First reviews are out and the 20 series is looking better than expected for games. It was originally thought that even the 2080Ti wouldn't be able to manage 4K @ 60+ FPS in games but initial reviews show it reaching ~80+ in the games tested. This is with ray tracing turned off as there aren't enoug...

Hi Mark Thanks for that ;-) In fact I've only just found out (today, whilst trying to find out what would be the correct settings) that inspecting the stderr output of successfully completed tasks, allows one to check the actual "config" parameters of said GPU...which will hopefully mean I can tweak...

Re: Will UBT get to 1 TRILLION credits?

Hi all So, my GTX970 is taking about 800-900 seconds (abt 15 mins) per Collatz task and that is earning about 30,000 credits per task. Currently my GTX580 is taking 7,500 seconds (just over 2 hours) and is earning about 37,000 credits per task. I'll need to investigate any Collatz optimised config p...

Re: Will UBT get to 1 TRILLION credits?

Hi Mark Ok - sounds good. My GTX 5xx Series comprises: a 590, 2x 580s, a 560Ti and a 560 (I counted the 590 as 2 GPUs, as it's really 2x 580s on one PCB). The 580 and the 970 have now been switched over to Collatz to see how they fare - and to see how hot they get - the 580 on MilkyWay I could get d...

Hi Mark, Yup - we're currently earning about 40 million per day on Collatz, according to BOINCstats: https://boincstats.com/en/stats/86/team/list/0/0/United%20Kingdom Though our weekly and 4-weekly stats imply a lower figure - around 30m and 15m per day, respectively. But I'm sure that with a bit of...

Re: Pick a number - GTX1180 / GTX2080 / RTX2080

Hi Mark Thanks for the extra info. I would imagine that the reviews will be positive but with caveats attached. So, my guess is that most people will hang onto their GTX10xx Series for now until such time as a few "popular" games creators supply some updates to take advantage of the new hardware. Be...
