I see your last results returned on Sep-3, you might need to run some of the actual ones in hope to catch the same batch as I have run.

OK, some are running now. You can check them at your leisure.  Yes, that is x1, which I prefer.

By the way, my preferences (both computing and Project) were seriously mixed up from the last time I changed them, only a few days ago.  I think the server still has some problems.

I have found my GTX 1060s can process 4 Gamma Ray pulsars an hour running 2 at a time vs only 3 an hour running 1. GPUZ shows a lot of sporadic usage on 1 whereas 2 shows a very consistent 99% usage. The same was true on a GTX660 even though the run time was 5 times greater.

The more consistent usage is an advantage for measurement purposes, but I prefer to leave more CPU time for other projects on the Ubuntu machine.  However, I actually intend to use a GTX 1060 on my Windows 7 machine for most of the Einstein GPU work, and on that machine I have more CPU cores free anyway, so I might look at it there during cooler weather.

EDIT:  I have put the GTX 1070 on the Ubuntu machine on x2 for a few hours, supported by one core of an i7-4770.  The power is more consistent, and about 222 watts total, or 222-103=119 watts for the card or 107 watts considering the power supply efficiency.  But I would not be surprised if the static power was more like 13 watts for that card (though I have not pulled it out to measure it), giving 120 watts as a good number for comparison purposes at x2.  You can check the time for yourself.  But this card will be used for other purposes most of the time, unless Einstein can come up with a GPU version for the gravity wave work, in which case it will be back as Arnie would say.

"unless Einstein can come up

"unless Einstein can come up with a GPU version for the gravity wave work, in which case it will be back as Arnie would say."

 If that were to occur 100% of both of my GTX1060s would be doing gravity waves and Seti would have to suffer with whatever is left of the CPUs.

One of my team mates has

One of my team mates has VEGA64 for tests. He tries to check it in all BOINC GPU projects.

http://www.boincatpoland.org/smf/testy-sprzetu/test-boinc-amd-vega-64/

It's polish, but data are international :)

IfYpou have any comments do not hesistate - somebody will answer.

I've just bought a Vega 56

I've just bought a Vega 56 but BOINC won't fetch any work? Just says communication deferred 20hrs

Latest drivers installed.

Any suggestions to fix that?

Daily quota has been exeeded:

Boinc doesn't fetch any work for now, propably because most of the task have errored out:

https://einsteinathome.org/host/6603193/tasks/0/0

Almost all of those tasks got this kind of error: 

Exit status:-1073741515 (0xC0000135) STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND

I don't know what might cause that. There's a newer Boinc client available. Maybe that is worth trying:

Oh the one's that errored out

Oh the one's that errored out were the open WU's a had queued up with my old 750Ti. When I changed the card out and plugged the Vega in, BOINC dumped those queued WU's hence the error.

 

Dunno why it won't fetch any new work??

 

Work generators down?

I am receiving work for

I am receiving work for application Gamma-ray Pulsar Binary search #1 (GPU), more tasks were loaded a few minutes ago. I guess you have to wait for the daily quota to time-out.

They have said that work is not generated continuously but rather in smaller chunks, I guess that explains why it says servers not running.
