I don't know who maintains the "Top GPU Models" webpage:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/gpu_list.php
but it is rather out of date in that Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 and GTX 690 models are not currently included (even though the contemporary GTX670 is listed). Likewise the Quadro series GPUs are absent (and the new GeForce Titan <- I'm assuming Titan GPU crunches S@H).

I request the maintainer to update the subject page in their spare time.

Thanks!


Sabertooth Z77, i7-3770K@4.2GHz, GTX680, W8.1Pro x64
P5N32-E SLI, C2D E8400@3Ghz, GTX580, Win7SP1Pro x64 & PCLinuxOS2015 x64

It will be an automatic script, rather than a person. Maybe it got broken in one or more of the server re-assignments. Let them recover from this outage, then drop Matt a note.

That boinc/html/user/gpu_list.php code is probably working as well as it ever has. It considers only results from hosts running stock, which gives an unrealistic picture for this project where most of the top hosts are running anonymous platform.

Another limitation is it doesn't include results with run time less than 100 seconds, which may mean the proportion of shorties will shift the rankings a lot.

Finally, since BOINC considers each GPU on dual-GPU cards separately, the x9x cards have always been lower in the list than seems right to users.

The script is part of BOINC, and Dr. Anderson is the only author.

Another thing is the Stock 6.10 app doean't work on Keplers unless the CUDA_GRID_SIZE_COMPAT environment variable has been applied, so out of the Box there no Keplers would have been in the list.

If BMaytum wants this fixing, he'll have to join the Beta testing of Setiathome v7, once the v7 apps and server setup are complete, and deployed here, then Keplers will be shown.

Does the "most productive GPUs" mean that the number of GPUs beeing used by the users affect the ranking (I meant, a million GT9500 will be more productive than just 1 GTX TITAN) or is just some kind of "average" performance for that kind of GPU?

The "most productive GPUs" is based on the amount of work returned by a certain model card so its really based on numbers and popularity of that card.

It does not reflect the actual performance of a card.

Cheers.
