I'm running BRPS on two

I'm running BRPS on two Amazon Fire TV sticks. A Fire TV stick 3rd Gen, and a Fire TV stick Lite. Both have a 4 core A53 at 1.69mhz. I'm using 2 cores per stick, 100% cpu usage, 90% memory. A task takes a bit over 40k secs. 3 cores at 100% causes throttling and is less effective than 2 cores. I haven't tried 3 cores with less than 100% cpu usage, I assume this might allow for some increase in throughput. I plan to try some sort of cooling. With just two cores, heat seems minimal. 

Setup is simple: sideload Boinc from Fdroid, then use ADB shell to turn off sleep timer. 

Anyone else running Fire TV sticks?

You may want to cool them as much as possible.

I remember someone reporting high burnout rates because they were not designed for 24/7 and got too hot.

Welcome to the ARM brigade. :)

I am running some elderly kindle fires.

I have some related

I have some related questions.

  1. What is the top producing, volunteer priced Arm CPU system?
  2. Is there any Arm CPU system out there compatible with Nvidia RTX 3000 series gpus?
  3. Are there any Arm/Nvidia compatible e@h applications?

While I am sure that with an unlimited budget something could be assembled I don't have an unlimited budget. :)

So?

There are several Pi cluster

There are several Pi cluster systems running.  I doubt they equal the performance of a single RTX 3000 though.

There is the custom BRP application by Gaurav Khana that runs on my Nvidia Jetson Nano device.

It uses a ARM57 processor core but has 128 Maxwell CUDA cores that run the BRP4/4G tasks pretty well.

I am trying to put together a Jetson TX2 NX module with 256 Pascal cores that I hope to have even better results with.
