Questions, comments and problems on new Fermi LAT gamma-ray puls

We will probably send out the first few tasks (for testing) on Monday.

If you don't want to receive any, opt-out of the "Gamma-ray pulsar search #1" in your Einstein@home project preferences.

What will it require in terms

What will it require in terms of the GPU (VRAM amount, single- or double-precision compute capability?).

Thanks,

There is no GPU version of that search yet, I hope that there will be one later.

The first set of tasks will require ~270MB of RAM, they should run 2-5h.

What can I say but WOW! A

What can I say but WOW! A truly exciting and scientifically valuable addition to the E@H project's task spectrum, yet another viewpoint upon these fascinating pulsar beasts. I look forward to earnestly crunching such units. :-)

Cheers, Mike.

Heh, when I saw this thread for the first time, the thread that explains what it does wasn't there yet, so I assumed it was for Fermi style Nvidia GPUs. ;-)

Glad it isn't.

Same here. LOL! Dear Enrico is being honoured in many ways. :-)

Please fix project

Please fix project preferences to allow opt-out of S6Bucket tasks. This is set to default. Why?

yup - did not help..

i never ran S6Bucket.

only BRP3CUDA.

no app_info involved.

and i can not opt out on S6Bucket on preferences because it's greyed out and not changeable.

so even if i wanted to, i can not run Fermi LAT only on CPU's if i wanted to..
