Have you downloaded the latest drivers for your integrated GPU?

...just running 1 stick of DDR4-2400 on a 2400G and getting ~60K points per day here


AMD Ryzen processors work better with high-speed RAM (3000 MHz at least). So if you change your 2400 MHz RAM with a 3000 or 3200 MHz one you'll get more points per day.

Here you can see the FP32 / FP64 GFlops of many GPUs. I think that GTX Titan and HD7970 are the best option for cost/power.

Is there a way to set a maximum number of tasks running simultaneously?
I have a Ryzen 7 1700 (8 cores, 16 threads) set to work with 15 cores but with M@H it uses all cores for CPU tasks, ignoring GPU ones.

I know that the AMD FirePro S9150 gives 2.5 TFlop in Double Precision operations (with just 235 W TDP). Can it be the best solution for M@H?

So, a GTX 1080 Ti is useless for this project...

If I want to add 2 commands for app_config (max cores number for N-Body and 2 tasks per GPU) I just have to write the 2 commands in the app_config?

Is it normal that a GTX 1080 Ti (core clock over 2 GHz) takes the same time to complete a task compared to a RX 480 4GB?
I have both in my PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor (overclocked to 3.9 GHz). They both take 2 minutes to complete a task.

I can't decide what GPU to buy.

Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080 Ti Waterforce Extreme Edition
3584 CUDA cores / 1746 MHz
12.5 TFlops

AMD RX Vega 64
4096 Stream Processors / 1546 MHz
12.6 TFlops

Which one is faster for BOINC crunching?

Passed from an integrated R7 Series to a Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ OC. From ~10 minutes to ~1 minute. I'm so excited 😆

With the app Charity Miles everyone can generate dollars just walking (25 cents per mile) or biking (10 cents per mile). You can ask the developers to add your project to make some dollars.

Is there the possibility to use Intel GPUs in the next weeks/months? I have 3 PCs with an Intel GPU (all running Einstein@Home and SETI@Home at the moment) but another project would be appreciated :P
