#1 Yet another daft idea: ARM-wrestling challenge

Post by Dirk Broer » Sun May 23, 2021 11:41 pm

I would like to raise awareness for ARM-crunching by ways or organizing a BOINC challenge solely for ARM crunchers -Linux and/or Android-, if such a thing can be done.
I would also like to stimulate the development ARM-based GPU apps -you should try to find out how many GFLOPS the GPU of that mobile phone you're holding is capable of...

What are your opinions?

Contact an admin or developer for a project that supports ARM and see if they can provide a stats export for just ARM systems and see if BoincStats can setup a Team Challenge using that ARM stats export. Start with the project first. If BoincStats can't or won't work with it maybe someone else will.

:rofl: @ ARM-wrestling :rofl:

The only way I could think of to do a challenge like that would be to have all participants attach to the same account so that each machine was visible to the adjudicators. For example, create a new account & only give out the weak key to attach to it when the challenge starts. How about WCG and join that new account to Sawyer's Cancer Fight team if that is still on the go ???
I think this is fool-proof but could you just try it for me please? • There are 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don’t

One way to do it is require participants to make their computers visible on the project. Then the host data extract could be used to identify the host as an ARM computer and only count credits from the ARM hosts.
