I have substituted a GTX 750 OC with a GTX 1050 Ti on my Windows 10 PC and it is much faster. But why does its fan run and make noise even when not crunching GPU tasks? The 750 fan was almost never heard even when crunching GPU tasks.

As an old typographer I like black fonts on white pages, Times New Roman.

I had to downgrade my NVIDIA driver on the GTX 1050 Ti otherwise BOINC would not recognize it. Now it is running SETI@Home beta and making some fan noise, but GPU temperature is around 50 C or less and the fan runs at 34%. A good board by Palit, also with a Thunder Master desktop tool in case I'd like to optimize it. But I am keeping standard parameters, it is fast enough compared to my former GTX 750 OC.

I have a new version of Geforce Experience but I am not going to use it. The 1050 Ti performance in Einstein on Arecibo data searching for double radio pulsars is impressive, about 40 minutes instead of 1 h 26 min on the 750 OC and more than 2 hours on the HD 7770 of the Linux box.

I went back to 375.70, restarted Windows and now the GPU is visible. Einstein@home started using it, then I will try SETI and SETI Beta.

No, it is simply incompetence. ESA has the habit of employing contractors, and that Romanian software house made a lower bid. NASA has other standards. My friend Roberto Battiston, head of the Italian Space Agency, has proposed a cooperation with Jet Propulsion Laboratory to develop a lander for ExoMars 20. They know how to land on Mars.

I think I shall use the DVD sent to me by the manufacture. But updates are always a risk. So far Geforce updates had worked on the GTX 750 OC, which worked well. Now I am left with the HD 7770 on the Linux box.
Tullio
No avail. I registered with nVidia and sent them a message. They say they will look into it.

The Italian Space Agency has made a rather critical review of the Schiaparelli affair. Its software was developed by a Romanian software house founded by a man graduated in theology and no hardware test of the Schiaparelli landing procedure was made, for economy reasons.

After updating the Geforce driver to 375.95 on my new GTX 1050, BOINC 7.6.22 does not recognize any NVIDIA GPU, while GP/Z sees it perfectly. So I am not getting any GPU task on my Windows 10 PC.

No turkey, only caciucco and bacalao. I love fish with white wine from Friuli. It used to be called Tocai, but the Hungarians protested, having a red wine called Tokay. Now our white is called Friulano.

You're right, but it finished its workload. Now I have asked for more but I did not get it. I received a DVD from Palit with the driver for the new board, but once installed and restarted it opened Windows 10 without a hitch. Now it is running LHC@home, which includes the old vLHC@home, CMS@home and other CERN projects which use VirtualBox. I am waiting for GPU tasks.
Tullio
It has been working also SETI Beta, by the way.

I just switched my Windows 10 PC from GTX 750 OC to GTX 1050 TI. The installation went without a hitch and I installed the latest Geforce driver, 275.95. I am waiting for SETI@home and Einstein@home GPU tasks to see any difference. I plan to install the GTX 750 on my old Linux box, when I feel to overcome the usual Linux problems when installing nVidia Cards.

Hawking is also afraid of artificial intelligence and of being discovered by hostile aliens. Maybe he is afraid of too many things, People live in New Zealand despite earthquakes, and on the slopes of Vesuvius despite the danger of a catastrophic eruption. We are always in danger.

I just ordered a 1050 TI to put it in the place of a GTX 750 OC, which is performing well. I plan to insert it in a 64-Bit Linux workstation, a 2008 vintage SUN which now has a HD 7770, also performing well in both SETI and Einstein.

I've been offered an insurance policy covering earthquakes damages for 35 euros/month. But the Milan area where I live is not an earthquake zone. Maybe people in Central and Southern Italy would be asked for more.

From what I read Nebula is going to run on a UNIX cluster, not on a variety of HW/SW architectures like the front-end SETI@home.

Effelsberg radio telescope in Germany has a 100 meters steerable antenna. Sardinia telescope in Sardinia has a 64 meters dish with adaptive optics. They both could give data up North.
