1050s do not have SLI. How do you run more than one 1050 in one system? Do you have to do anything special or do you just install the second (or third) one and it just works?


Exactly,, that is all there is to it. SLI has nothing to do with it and would not be helpful at all.

Just to confuse the issue here, I have 3 1050's in my Ryzen, two of them get all their power from the MB but the 3rd one has an external power connector. I really did not plan it that way, it just happened when I purchased the 3rd one.


. . The high end (aimed at gamers) 1050/1050ti cards tend to be heavily overclocked and will often have the external PCIe power connector. But for crunching the basic series of these cards will give the best bang for your buck.

I was not looking at Bang when I bought the third 1050ti, I was just trying to get a 3rd GPU on the MB at a price equal to or less than, what I paid for the first two which was before the prices when through the roof. It was the first 1050 that I had even seen for sale for a long time.

A whole lot of mucking about for no real gain IMHO.
I'n not sure about that. It seems the server is more willing to hand out AP tasks if the turn around time is quicker for them than MB tasks.

I find that my slow computers get many more APs than does my Ryzen computer. I have never been able to figure that out as the Ryzen is asking for WUs every 5 minutes while some of slower ones only ask every 15 minutes or so. So faster does not seem to mean more APs in my opinion.
Got 8 here on the 9th UTC.

Today is going to be hurt by the fact that I lost my Internet connection sometime over night.

I was given this task after the deadline was missed by one of the other computers. When that other computer completed the WU, I then completed it as well and my work was marked Invalid. I have looked and looked and I can not see where my results vary at all from the two Validated computers. I thought all three computers would normally get credit if this happened?

It may not mean much to those with "billions and billions" of credits, but my 900,000+ means a lot to me. I consider it to be a valid milestone. I'm hoping for one million by this time next year.

It just goes to show what persistence can do. Congratulations.

6 arrived here for the 3rd UTC.

[edit] BTW, it's been too warm here lately to run my 2 winter heaters so they're offline until at least Sunday.

Cheers.

I managed 6 as well and the A/C is running 24/7. Now I have to wait two weeks for my RAC to climb back up after I had the computers offline for 3 days.

Cheers.

Nothing here

I will be leaving them all for you as I will have to shut down this morning for a heat wave that is starting and I will not be around for the weekend. I will start back up next week after I get home. My AC in that room is old and I do not want to rely on it to run continuously while I am away. See you all soon.
