Title: DENIS@Home Update
Post by: kashi on October 25, 2015, 10:34:22 AM
Thanks to Daniel for the heads up about optimized apps at DENIS.  :thumbsup: +1

My new Skylake rig is finally built I've been crunching up a storm on DENIS using Crunch3r's optimized SSE4.1 app.  

If anyone wants to have a go at DENIS, the optimized apps are much, much faster than the default apps, so the optimized app credit rate is currently very high. You can watch your credits zoom up quickly if you hanker for a burst of high credit crunching.

It's to do with heart disease research too, so project "worthiness" must be up there somewhere. Links to optimized apps can be found in DENIS forum.

Don't forget:

Denis Denis, oh with your eyes so blue
Denis Denis, I've got a crush on you
Denis Denis, I'm so in love with you

Oh when we walk it always feels so nice
And when we talk it seems like paradise
Denis Denis I'm so in love with you

Sesef has a new AVX2 app.  Supposedly 30% faster again. :crazy   Only for those with late model model i7 - 4xxx series or better..

If in doubt about you CPU capabilities download CPU-Z.  Haven't tried it myself as yet so can't comment on how fast it go's.

Aha, was about to post about it here myself. Sesef's AVX2 is 13-14% faster than Crunch3r's SSE 4.1 version on my Skylake i7 6700K. Smokin'  :boom:    v:

I'm not sure what magical juju you infused into your new rig kashi but it's insanely fast on DENIS.  :shock  I'm completely blown away by it's speed. 

Enjoy buddy...

Yes I saw there was a challenge on.
Noticed some others were referencing the Blondie song, haha.

Was about to try "magical juju" :coolgleam: box on POGS now that I've reached 2 million but will stay for the challenge.

That will also allow me to upgrade from gold to platinum heart. :thumbsup:

Hmm, gold and platinum hearts of course reminded me of a wooden heart, go Elvis:

There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like you really should
Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart


Songs, songs, what about ear worms? Watched RockWiz a few months ago and saw Normie Rowe performing Ooh La La. Not the greatest song, but man what an earworm. Was with me for almost a week and am still getting flashbacks now and again.

Lots of old songs popping into my brain lately for no apparent reason. Must be the start of senility, suddenly remembering songs from 40-50 years ago and forgetting what I had for breakfast. Good fun though, yesterday was the Monkees, Daydream Believer and I'm a Believer. My brother's got it too, yesterday his was Thunderclap Newman, Something in the Air and Hall & Oates, Rich Girl.

*LOL* It was almost a very short challenge. At at the start of the challenge the sudden surge of bunkered tasks reporting in and all wanting new tasks all at once for a time brought DENIS to it's knees.
