If you're running older GPUs (Keplers and Tahiti's) it is definitely worth considering replacing them Pascal GPUs.

A GTX 1070 appears to be close to 8x as fast as a 660ti on POEM and uses the same amount of power. Do the math and see if the power savings over a reasonable payback period make it worth the cost.

You can always put the Tahiti's in a cabinet that says "In Case of Milkyway Challenge Break Glass" but keep those heaters off until needed.

Caro has new 2 x GTX 970's to replace the last of the 660ti's up for sale. Should have a GTX 980 added in the next few days.

2 more GTX 980's on their way to the fleet. Guess a few more GPU's will be up on Ebay as the modernisation of the fleet continues.

3 x GTX980's now in the post to join the 2 x GTX 970's up and running. A few more older cards will be up for sale soon. Tech shed is a happier place than it's been for a while. Soon the fleet will be equiped with 970's, 980's and 7970's with the exception of Heimdal. Hopefully will be a profitable and less costly to run mix. Need to get the 750TI back up and running as well.

Loki 2 is now Lokidoze running win 7 and armed with a gtx980 :think:
2 x ARMv7 Processor RK3188 Quad Core Cortex A9 ( Droid boxes ) Android 4.4 Droids # 2,3 returned to the land of the living

few more things to sell but think that's the fleet modernised for a wee while anyway. :liar:

Some wee changes and a few things moved around for FB2018. Think I will have a look at a wee bit more modernisation and definitely scrapping some of the stuff just filling up space in the tech shed.

I've got an all Pascal GPU fleet now. Swapped out a GTX 970 for a GTX 1080 and a GTX 750 TI for a GTX 1050 Ti. I don't think I ever got a 750 Ti over 65C even in a baking hot room running Amicable Numbers but the 1050 Ti uses all the juice it can on PPS Sieve. Have to run the fan over 90% to keep it below 70C but it does finish a PPS Sieve in 53% of the time it takes a 750 Ti, same machine, 937 sec vs 1765 sec for a single WU.

Got a GTX 1060 on the way for Heimdal. Should replace the 2 older AMD cards installed. Have a GTX 750ti to add in the second non powered slot. Another batch of 4 or 5 GPU's will be going up for sale. Wondering how my first 10 series card will do. Might look at a 1070 or 1080 for a new system.

Orac is now 2 x GTX 980, Caro is gone. Kid has both GTX 970's and running out of 7970's due to fan failures. Guess they are getting obsolete.

Anyone got a GTX 1070 ? How good / bad are they ? Looking at upgrading my remaining 7970's. Obviously less power and less DP performance, but should be far better GPU's for everything bar Milkyway@Home.

Sorry no. My only nVidias are GTX1080 (4Gb) and a GTX960. The 960 is only about 1/7th as capable as the 1080 (comparing them on PrimeGrid)

I thought the 1080's were 8GB ? I've got a 1060 wih 6 GB on it's way. I think standard is 3GB. I've got a bunch of 970 and 980's that are great cards. Looked at the 960 but it offered nothing over the cards it was meant to replace. Changing out some older AMD cards, mainly 7970's and 7750's. The 7970 still has massive DP performance and the 7750's are just so damn efficient and cost effective.

So did I to be honest. Collatz is certainly reporting that card as follows "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (4095MB) driver: 390.77", and "Linux LinuxMint Linux Mint 19 Tara [4.15.0-38-generic|libc 2.27 (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.27-3ubuntu1)]"

Maybe summat amiss?? That is the same machine which isn't getting any GPU work from Collatz


GPUGRID also reports "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (4095MB) driver: 390.77" but it is giving me WU to perform.

From my post on troublesome https://tsbt.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php? ... 988#p63988

The problem you are facing is the points given by Collatz. BOINC bases which projects you get units based on resource share you set but mainly RAC. Because Collatz pays so well, it will take ages for other projects to catch up and so Collatz will get no work. I basically only set one GPU project I want to get units for, at the moment Collatz. If I want to run Primegrid then I set Collatz to no new work and set Primegrid to receive new work. After all these years the BOINC manager is still dumb as a box of rocks in reality because it creator tried to have all projects give the same credit. As they don't the logic just doesn't work.
The best option is to set a GPU project you wish to crunch and add a second GPU project as a backup ( if you wish ) with a share of 0. That way it will only get work if your chosen project has no work. Alternatively, if you check your systems regularly as I do, then simply set one project at a time. I do the same for CPU's. I may run different projects at the same time, but I do it on different systems so I have control of what I crunch.
Alternatively you can do it with resource share but you end up setting ridiculous share percentages like 10,000 for Collatz to get any work. Micro-managment works best.

Apparently you can get the 1080 in 4GB, 8GB, 11GB or 16 GB versions.

and appears I have pressed buy it now button on a GTX 1070 8GB .... ooops :D That will be the HD7970 out of Beagle. Hopefully more crunching and less lecky bill. Really have to Ebay some of the cards just kicking around now.

The Flag Ship for the Hungarian Navy currently is steaming to join up with Scotland is the pride and joy of the Hungarian Navy our custom built rig and was commissioned earlier this summer: GenuineIntel
Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9980XE CPU @ 3.00GHz [Family 6 Model 85 Stepping 4]
(36 processors) [3] NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (4095MB) driver: 45148
It sails like a stealth force, just looking to calm any trouble at sea.

The other three ships are also carrying heavy guns of dual RTX 2080 Ti's.

One ship is running on dual 1080 Ti's for over 2 years now and they keep humming away, w/o any problems.
These gpu cards are one of the best they made.
