There is now v. 1.22

There is now v. 1.22 (Windows, currently Nvidia only, Beta test).

Unfortunately our possibilities for in-house testing of Windows GPU Apps are very limited, so I'm relyng on you guys.

No change in time to completion from what I can see.

Was there a different purpose for this upgrade?

Thanks!

So the 1.20 app doesn't get tasks anymore? I'm back to running 1.17 on a host that doesn't do beta apps.

I am no "expert", but to me v. 1.22 beta on GPUs seems to be running fine.

I've tested, rather I am still testing, NVIDIAs GPUs 750ti, 960, TITAN X, TITAN V and GV100.

Hope this helps the project!

Run times are OK - as far as I'm concerned.

Just curious: How many out-of-house tests do you actually need to check off "beta" status as reliable?

It really depends. For technical issues / fixes like here it doesn't need much, just showing that the bug of the previous version which basically crashed each task is fixed.

To check the scientific / numerical validity of the results when we change the calculation it takes much more, recently a whole "Engineering run" set up specifically for that with tens or hundreds of thousands of tasks.

Hi Bernd,I am experiencing

Hi Bernd,

I am experiencing a wicked issue that despite dispatching FGRP1B jobs two two different (AMD) cards they are still being run on just one card. I have detailed my problem here:

https://einsteinathome.org/content/dual-amd-computes-first-card-only

My BOINC setup seems ok, as this worked before when I had AMD + Nvidia crunching in parallel.

Any insight would be highly appreciated!

edit some hours later:

The problem seems to be AMDs OpenCL implementations conflicting. It works on ROCm.

Still 403k WUs pending. Doubt the work generator will run until that drops.
