Nope.. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=7374749&offset=0&show_names=0&state=4&appid=20

AP7 credit is low as hell. Thats not that good really.

And if running an older card, use the nvidia 320 driver. It seems to be the one of the last the runs old hardware well.

Newer drivers break opencl etc.

The impact is when the workunits requires more cpu to Crunch, if i recall blanking is done by cpu.
And ofcourse the initials of every wu is made by the cpu. So the stronger cpu the more utilisation on the gpu and higher productivity.
Best thing is to monitor with gpu-z how much gpu utilisation you have on average if you are in the 95% range almost all the time then no need to bother.
More in parallell is often better as you have set it than fewer until the time when bus/cpu becomes bottleneck.

As i suspected when i checked your webpage. Those that have been running coinmining are soon returning to distributed computing as it's not sustainable anylonger to mine due to powerbill is higher than the relative income. :)

Welcome with your rig at S@H :)

It says 701 in version, in the apps section i read 705 at http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/apps.php

Shouldnt it say 705 in the app_info instead of 701 as in the aistub file?

An app_info example would be great aswell.
Or is it copy paste from a AP6 config and just changing the numbers?
If someone got a working AP7 app_info with new apps i would gladly try it aswell.

Mike's packages include an 'AIstub' file - a segment of information in app_info.xml format which can be added to an existing app_info file to add AP V7 functionality. Add as many as you wish, for CPU and/or any of the three GPU manufacturers.

No-one has tested them on the main project yet, because there's no work available - that's another reason why the installer will be slow arriving, because I need to test it with data after I've finished writing it.


There!! Thanks!

Well i can only chime in that i noticed this early on.
This is quote from me in our team forum 254 Days ago..


"Well now it's confirmed that running AP on CPU also gives credit boost.
It's a 3930K machine with HT turned off (Yes it still sucks too much to be useful) and is running Lunatics 0,41 optimised executables.

On one of my hosts i'm running s@h7 and ap6 in parallell and compares credit/second on the cpu..

A AP WU ~ 0,041 - 0,043 credits/cpu second
A S@H7 WU ~ 0,019 - 0,021 credits/cpu second

So by only adjusting that our primary tasks are AP tasks and tick the "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?" box.
That would make our boxes out there try to download AP's first of all. I didn't Think i would see the light of the day that i tried to encourage you to run AP here in GPUUG but as their now creditnew invention goes on"

Notice that i'm Writing CPU second and not GPU so even the CPUs got more credits doing AP tasks.

This is a shame and should be addressed and fixed asap in my opinion! I mean how hard can it be to adjust the earning (credit) parameters of MB7 up to atleast AP levels. MB6 is of the charts anyhow so they don't even need to try to match it to older multibeam.

I hope you land soft Sten! Thanks for bringing this topic up that has been going on since around June last year.

Kind regards Vyper

Anyone know what to write?
Downloaded Mikes latest AP Intel OpenCL 2083 and gets this!

I've updated the app_info as what is written into the aistub file!

2014-01-31 21:51:32 | | OpenCL CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (OpenCL driver vendor: Intel(R) Corporation, driver version 3.0.1.10878, device version OpenCL 1.2 (Build 76413))
2014-01-31 21:51:32 | SETI@home | Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform
2014-01-31 21:51:32 | | app version refers to missing GPU type intel_gpu
2014-01-31 21:51:32 | | app version refers to missing GPU type intel_gpu

EDIT: I have no screen attached but GPU Caps Viewer can use the Intel Opencl gpu in it's test and its working!

Kind regards Vyper
