Project Updates
« on: November 14, 2013, 09:41:44 PM »

Not exactly brand new news but I see GPU crunching coming to asteroids@home.   :dance:  didn't notice that before?

See link..  http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/forum_thread.php?id=131&postid=1913

Of course not available as yet, so it's just some more tempting news & another great reason to get a good GPU.  As far as i'm concerned any news about GPU app development is good news.  At least the app has already been built & is now being tested.

As I mentioned before in another thread AMD R9 290x & R9 290 next gen cards have been released as well as Nvidia GTX 780 ti's but unfortunately they all share one thing in common stripped down fp64 support.  Which of course is needed for the aseroid@home's app being tested.
Early looks show these new cards offer great gains in projects where double precision math is not a requirement(most of them), so it's not as bad as is sounds but it ticks me off that they cripple these cards on purpose so they can sell the un-crippled versions to industry & scientists as high end data center/workstation cards & of course charge them at 4 or 5 times the price for the privilege.  Both AMD & Nvidia do the same thing but AMD in the past didn't totally cripple them as badly as Nvidia did. (until now at least)   Any thoughts?

I completely missed this paper when they published in July. Interesting. A link to the Abstract is here:
https://arxiv.org/abs/1807.02083

One can download the entire paper as a PDF at the top right.

Holy Moly...... Tim B has just added 3 x 2990WX to his crunching collection  :faint:
Someone have a lotto win?  :jester:

All these larger core CPU's is a real win for science and BOINC  :thumbsup:
Congrats on your new babies Tim  :worship They are a welcome addition to the BOINC@Australia family  :rocks

Yesterday the admin announced that they have released a new CUDA application ...

Quote
New CUDA application for Windows x64 Release

What's improved?

- We've Added support for latest Compute Capabilities (CC). Application was built with latest CUDA SDK v10.2 adding support for latest NVIDIA devices with Compute Capabilities (CC). This build supports CC 3.0, 3.5, 3.7, 5.0, 5.2, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, & 7.5 from Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal, Volta & Turing architectures and their GeForce, Quadro, NVS and Tesla series, but does NOT supports Tegra and Jetson SoC Series devices (CC 3.2, 5.3, 6.2 & 7.2) which are not subject of interest for this project.

- Fixed issue with special Light curves which has more than 1000 points.

There is more information here ...
