Why are AP's so hit and miss????...

... there are a number of people who target them as they pay better.

The people who have built mini supercomputers prefer AP WU; some can crunch 350 or more a day. Then there are the hoards who can build a 1000 AP WU caché.

How in the h*ll does a machine get 1k AP's??!!???!??!!?
It isn't even that quick.....

Check for a file called MultiBeam_OpenCL_ReadMe.txt in your projects folder.

I added a section called Best Tips.

Most important switch on MB is the -sbs switch.
It increases the single buffer size.

Thank you sir, just what I was looking for......

info to help speed up the crunching???
I have this:
-unroll 12 -ffa_block 8192 -ffa_block_fetch 4096 in the AP_cmdline txt file


Where can I find this for MB????

Are you set to accept any task both GPU and CPU? We are out of AP and from what I read it could be a long time before we get more.


WHO WHAT WHERE WHY?!??!?!?!!!

Why are AP's so hit and miss????

Will do.....


Thanks for looking....

No, no, no... You don't need to do any of that. No need in going faster and catch up to me.
...wait no our team is about to be passed in 7 days! Full speed ahead!!!

My 6870 didn't seem to do much better when running 2 vs 1, but that was back on AP v5.05.




LOL!!!!!!
I need a fleet to catch you brother.....
When my son goes to college this fall I will use his 6870 to crunch too...:D

I decided to try running 2 WU's at a crack on my GPU again and I dont remember times I got before, I am running a 6950 with the shaders unlocked at 900mhz.
Didnt want to push it too much, the temp is 63, GPU usage is 84-100%, and memory isnt hitting above 350MB out of 2GB.

I am running 2 cores right now, plus the GPU. Will the appinfo below run 2 at once on the GPU??

And, would it be wise to do the same with AP??
