Through the fine work of the GPU Users Group, Terabit Systems has generously donated both a 1Gbit and a 10Gbit ethernet switch to our group. The 1Gbit switch will be a substantial upgrade to our server room. The 10Gbit switch will become part of a very high speed SETI spectrometer to be deployed at the Greenbank Telescope.

Jeff, thanks for the news!

A big *Thank you!* to the GPU Users Group and Terabit Systems!


Does this mean that the internet connection between the SETI@home server room and us members will be upgraded soon from the current 100 Mbits/sec to 1 Gbit/sec?

Indeed, a great 'Huzzah' to the GPU group. Infrastructure like this makes a huge difference.

I'd thank 'em by doing business with them, but I have no idea what I'd do with a big-#@% switch like that if I had it.

Hello,

So the download speed units will accelerate?

Thank you to them for this gift ...

No, it won't directly affect download speeds because everyone will still be limited to the 100Mbit switch up the hill.
