Neat images, wonder if it could be used as a S@H screensaver?


Why bother with screensavers anymore? Simply open up the page in your web browser and press F11 to go full-screen. Leave it up on your monitor for an awesome display! :-D



Then open up task manager and see how much cpu usage its using.

Just under 100% of one core.
So its not exactly a "light weight" application
Very interesting to see where data is flowing

Excellent.

Looks like a version of Global Thermonuclear War from War Games but without the Russians:D

That's what the CPU is there for: to do stuff. Since I am not dedicating all CPU cores to SETI, letting this webpage run isn't a bad usage of CPU power.

Hi OzzFan,

Yup, and thereby screw up any crunching taking place using the GPU:-/

Hmmm... I crunch on my GPUs and it hasn't screwed up anything here. I'm not sure why you think displaying images would screw up crunching? I'm sure you display your desktop when it is crunching.

Further, wouldn't displaying it as a screen saver do the same thing? After all, it is just an image being displayed on the screen.

i love this. Helps visualize all of us working away! I run 2 hps 24/7 for you. Am currently home from a shoulder operation you just made my day!

Also it is spring break so most students are not on this week. Check it out next week, will be higher.

Thank you,

Yes, there are ~10 .js files used like this:
<script src="./js/transfer.js"></script>

My wild guess - native (machine, CPU) code will be >100 times faster/lighter

Some of the .js are code:

Some are big tables:

Agreed. Nothing that would screw up GPU processing.

It does slow it down by taking up CPU time that the GPUs need to keep busy.

Assuming you only leave a single core free for the GPU, sure. Along the same lines, it would slow down crunching on that single CPU if it weren't assisting the GPU. Still, it wouldn't screw it up either way.

SO COOL!!!
Would be a nice Screensaver too! It could switch every 10 minutes or so with the current screensaver :D

There are 8 billion people on this planet.

You think that 7 billion is good enough as well? World Population Clock.

Smuggling a billion here and there, you should work for the Government. They juggle with numbers like that as well. ;-)

Hi Ozzfan,
It slows down crunching:-( Not by a lot, but slow down it does..
And as a screensaver I wouldn't be using it during crunching, since my rig is also my home video server and general usage machine, mail etc. That's when I'd run a screensaver.

Cheers,
Cliff,
