Please use this comandline

-sbs 384 -period_iterations_num 30 -spike_fft_thresh 2048 -tune 1 64 1 4 -oclfft_tune_gr 256 -oclfft_tune_lr 16 -oclfft_tune_wg 256 -oclfft_tune_ls 512 -oclfft_tune_bn 32 -oclfft_tune_cw 32 -cpu_lock

Edit: There is no difference for AMD cards between v8.20 and v8.22.
All modifications are Nvidia only.

The best application for Nvidia GPUs on systems running Windows is SoG which makes use of OpenCL- AMDs computing language. But the fact is it can also be run on Nvidia cards & the SoG application was developed especially for Nvidia cards.


Not quite right.
The SOG app was built for AMD cards first.
Later on the app has been modified to run on Nvidia cards as well.
Also OpenCL is not a AMD computing language, its a universal computing language.

I assume then Raistmer offered the new beta app to you for testing. Did he tell you anything about it? Like what is V_lock doing in the name? Something to do with gpu memory from your comment I assume.

[Edit] Just looked at your hosts and noticed the cpu tasks run with the r3714 cpu app. So a cpu app and not a gpu app.

What are the clocks on the cpus? The speed isn't printed out in the stderr.txt like for the SSE41 apps.


Like i said already i`m testing this app since february in closed alpha on Lunatics.
Since July i run it on beta and a few weeks later on main.
Its on me to decide if its worth to make it public.
Raistmer trusts me on this.

I`m running my Ryzen on stock speed 3,6 GHZ.

Ok, was just trying to attribute crunching time to either the app or the cpu clocks. OK. You are running 90% as fast clocks as I am but your improvement in crunch time does not scale concurrently to the difference between the r3711 SSE41 app and your new r3714 app. So must be some other parameters that are not the same between your hosts and my hosts. Likely the memory clocks.


I`m running 16GB 3200 CL14.
Since r3714 uses new memory handling techniques yes, the RAM makes the difference.

Guess I missed it the 3 or 4 times I went to view the Download page. Pretty sure I didn't have an old version of the website in the browser cache since I cleared it a couple of days ago and haven't visited your site in months. See it now.

Did you write the app or Raistmer? Haven't seen any discussion by Raistmer yet in his threads.


It`s Raistmers app off course.
I just thought after 9 month of testing its time to try a open beta.
It should be faster on any Zen based CPU.
Not sure about Intels since i have no clue about their memory handling.

I would like to see how the Threadripper performs with the new app i made available on my website.
Sadly the 2990WX runs on Linux.

What app is that? I don't see anything new at your website.


Its r3714_Vlock.
Maybe you need to refresh the page after loading.
Its been downloaded a few times already.

The 2990W I have coming online "soon" is reusing a dual-boot Win10 and Lubuntu HD. I assume I would need an upgrade to the Lunatics distro to test your newest crunching app?


No, this app needs to get installed manually.

So i'm curious. I just run a Nvidia Geforce Gt 730 in the system here. It does one unit every two hours or so.

What would one of these expensive cards do? Do they have more cores and such? How much faster would they turn units back in?


Yes.
My AMD R9 380 returns a unit every 8 to 10 minutes.
A Nvidia 1080TI in less than 5 minutes.
On Linux with the special app 2 minutes.
