Probably.  But stay away from the Beta.  It is a mess at the moment.  And POEM is down for the count (an Americanism, from boxing matches):  http://boinc.fzk.de/poem/forum_thread.php?id=1280 

 

F@H beta is fine. I moved my 1070 to F@H, along with the 980TI that always runs F@H and my 970 to Asteroids. Non-number crunching is limited atm.

The F@H beta is OK if you are

The F@H beta is OK if you are running a single card on Windows.  But double cards (even if identical) don't work on Windows, and there is another problem on Linux, though I don't recall exactly what it is.  I ran into both though.

I have 2 cards in Windows right now. A 1070 and 970 that run fine. I also have a 980Ti running in Linux and have ran others in the past. It's best to speak from actual experience.

I have posted my experience

I have posted my experience on their forum.  Several other people had the same problems. (See the most recent post in their Beta discussion, for example.) But we are a bit OT here, except to illustrate that all projects have software problems.

Andromeda, (MAC OSX system

Andromeda, (MAC OSX system with two EVGA GTX-750TI SC cards), just ran out of BRP6 Units.  While other work is set to be accepted, NO other work is being sent to the MAC.

Exeter, (Win XP Pro x64 with EVGA GTX-760), is almost out of Arecibo GPU 1.52 - BRP4G-Beta-cuda32 work.  It, too, was set to pick up all GPU work, and was crunching BRP6 work until yesterday.  NO other work, (besides 1.52), is on Exeter at the moment.


It is now 11:30 PM - Pacific and Exeter will be out of work in a couple of hours.  I sincerely hope that new GPU work will be available soon.  I have, (as of this afternoon), resumed crunching SETI Beta to pick up work while Einstein is out of work.  I would rather crunch Einstein, but...

I maybe right behind you TL...

2 of 4 rigs are complete out of GPU work.  1 only has a few Arecibo work units. The other has a good supply of Parkes but might not make the deadlines.

All 4 have CPU work enabled but had to limit how many run at a time otherwise it would suck up the resources for other things. Good thing they are all i7s.  Average time is around 4 hours for those but the server insist on sending more than a month's worth at a time. Needless to say those CPU work units will error out due to deadline.

In the meantime I watch my RAC decline here because I only use my GPUs here. Oh well Seti is getting a small boost.

Well, Exeter has 12 Units left.  Should finish those sometime tonight.  In less than 2 full days, my SETI Beta RAC is now above 1600.  I think that's the highest SETI Beta has hit for me.

May Suspend SETI Beta in the next couple of days and switch to SETI Main on both machines.

Today; Exeter, (Win XP Pro

Today; Exeter, (Win XP Pro x64 with EVGA GTX-760), has picked up a boatload of 1.52 BRP4G Beta-cuda32 Units.  Andromeda, (MAC OSX with two EVGA GTX-750TI SC cards), has NO work.

Any idea when MAC OS CUDAxx  will be sent out???  (Or has this been discussed already.)

I only crunch on GPU, not on CPU.

The work is available but

The work is available but according to the last contact log of your Mac you won't get any because your GPU driver or rather CUDA version is to new.
