Re: What are you thoughts about AMD A10-7860K

No, I did not mean specific projects, but I do know that for certain PrimeGrid or SRBase apps Intel CPUs are better suited. AMD's module approach sounded great in theory but may have been years ahead of its time, as only with the present Zen APUs there seems to be the level of integration needed. I ...

Re: What are you thoughts about AMD A10-7860K

How many core I would be able to utilize in this CPU? Ha! That's a trick question, which can be parried with 'Integer or floating point?'. The A10-7860K has two 'Steamroller' modules, with two Integer cores and one Floating Point core each. The system sees the two 'Steamroller' modules as four core...

Re: What are you thoughts about AMD A10-7860K

Provided that you run Windows, the IGP of the AMD A10-7860K may very well be used for almost all projects that involve GPU crunching, just do not expect miracles. (Though, on a side note: I personally have crunched MilkyWay GPU WUs using the IGP of my A10-5700 -and those require double precision.......

Re: Unable to attach DHEP on Linux host

Any luck yet with DHEP on Linux Mint 19.1?

Do you use BOINCStat's BAM on the Linux Mint box? If not, give it a try -just to have DHEP installed. You can detach from the BAM account manager any time you like afterwards.

Stock intel cpu coolers won't keep an i7 cool, not if it's got turbo enabled and you run it wide open. You'll need something like a Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO or better. I almost binned a socket 1155 board and i7-3770 because I used the stock cooler and It couldn't cope. And I thought -at first- th...

I remember having an argument with someone about attainment levels in Education. They completely refused to accept my throwaway assertion that 50% of pupils were below average.
By definition you are right -and the opposite is true also : 50% of pupils will be above average.
