BioNTech SE today announced that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the manufacturing of the COVID-19 vaccine drug product at the facility in Marburg. This facility will be delivering vaccine sometime in the second half of April and is ...

Re: Linux: How to disable mitigations for CPU vulnerabilities

I shut down the 2P Ivy beast for now. The PPD is between a 3700X and a 3900X and it draws 310 watts from the wall with turbo boost off. I'll replace it when you can actually buy hardware sometime in the future.

Re: Linux: How to disable mitigations for CPU vulnerabilities

I ran your llrDIV script on my 2P Ivy with mitigations on and off and although the trend seemed to be a slight improvement, I doubt it's statistically significant.

MLC@Home Cuda app is CPU limited

I've noticed that the MLC cuda app is CPU limited so it may be a good project for some low powered cards. Observations with a 2070S on a 3700X running universe on the CPUs: 1) 1 MLC cuda task per GPU with one free CPU thread (~65% shader utilization) 2) 2 MLC cuda tasks per GPU with 2 free CPU threa...

Re: Help With Asus Z10PC-D8

Is it possible your PSU is the problem? I see you have both 8 pin connectors plugged into the MB so that's good. I see in the manual on p 2-18 that it won't post if there's not enough power. I know this is a stretch but I can't think of anything else to try. E5-2690V4 is 135 W TDP E5-2680V3 is 120 W...

This was the race we had last year on the anniversary of the bigadv EOL. We can do it again if [H] is up for it.
The dates we ran this race last year overlaps with the PG "Tour de Primes" this year. Perhaps we can run it the last week of January.

Re: F@H Challenge thread, 2021

Markfw and pokey would definitely like to participate but they each average 42 M PPD on FAH. [H] as a team is averaging 169,115,049 PPD so maybe the same format as last year would work. It depends on how many TAAT members sign up and how many GPUs they toss into the race.

GFN-21 has not been updated because it's still capable of running the FP64 transforms, which are the fastest.
Another app for the Radeon VII. :) Maybe I'll try it out during the PG GPU challenge later this month unless of course, it's need elsewhere. :)
