Re: MLC@Home Cuda app is CPU limited

The 750Ti is running at 100% utilization with a single CPU core free on the i7-4790, so this is probably only an issue with fast GPUs.

Re: Low power video card

Another possible cheap option if you can find one, is the GTX 750ti. GPU-Z is saying that the 750ti in my daughter's computer uses 0.9W at idle. I don't know if I trust that number, but it's pretty impressive if true.

Re: MLC@Home Cuda app is CPU limited

I have the GTX 750ti in my daughters' computer (with an i7-4790) running MLC right now. It only gets about 8-10 hours of run time per day since they actually use that computer a lot for school and other stuff, and it's averaging a massive 46K per day over the 6 days I've had it attached to the proje...

Re: Low power video card

The GTX 1030 is cheaper than the 1050, but from what I can find it idles a few watts higher than the 1050 at around 8 watts. It's not a huge difference so could be worth it for the cost difference between the cards.

Re: Low power video card

I don't see anything official, but I found an article on Tom's Hardware that says the GTX 1050 (not ti) uses 3-5 watts when idling. Not sure it fits the "cheap" category, though, since pretty much all graphics cards are ridiculous right now... This chart doesn't include some of the least power hungr...

Re: Running Linux VM under Windows, performance hit?

I have a Hyper-V VM running Linux Mint 20 on my 3900X computer running Windows 10. I have it mostly for projects that only work in Linux, so I haven't really tested projects directly in both Windows and Linux to see how they compare. I have the VM configured to allow access to all 24 cores/threads a...
