I've been interviewing at the University of North Dakota (which is why you didn't get a news post about the drive upgrade until now), and gave a public talk to the faculty and students. I've made the slides available for all of you if you'd like to take a look at them. The talk was 'From Analyzing the Tuberculosis Genome to Modeling the Milky Way Galaxy: Using Volunteer Computing for Computational Science', and you can find a link on the project information page.


On another note, labstaff replaced the corrupted hard drive with a faster hard drive (the one previously installed was just an interim drive while we got the new one shipped). So that explains the outage and why a bunch of workunits are awaiting validation. I'm going to keep try an eye on things and make sure they all get cleared out, but I don't get home until wednesday so if anything really bad happens it might need to wait until then.

My question;

You seem to imply that all GPU contribution was by ATI HD5870. I was under the impression that most of the early contribution came from ATI HD4850 and HD4870s and that the use of the ATI HD5870 was relatively new to the project. How much GPU contribution is currently from ATI HD4850/70 rather than HD5870?

No idea. There's a lot of nvidia cards out there too. The slide was just to show that the GPU applications are quite a bit faster than the CPU ones.
