@voodoo5_6k Check the CUDA version you have. If not 11 see if you can add that version.
I may be wrong, but I think it is the CUDA version that makes the difference.
In linux, how do you tell what cuda version you are running ?

I have CUDA 11.2, as Debian 11.1 has the 460 series driver. But there are newer versions of the driver and CUDA out there already. But it'll take some time for these to reach Debian stable... a long time ;) This is not a bad thing (stable is better than bleeding edge in my opinion), but I'm curious :D

Thanks for the info @Markfw :)

You could also look into FAHControl, System Info tab, and scroll down to your GPU. There you have both, CUDA and driver version.

I will have a greatly lower ppd also, partly to even out the teams, partly to help the team with primegrid. Still over 40m ppd.

Dang, @cellarnoise is out producing me. This is simply unacceptable, though I don’t exactly know what I’m going to do about it yet.
Hurry up Endgame! It is lonely "way" out here in front and I can barely see some character named "Stefan5r5" this far back! We should join forces and strive to take down "StefanR2D2" ahead of us, before the end of this challenge!!! Maybe we have a chance if there are few clouds in the forecast? :p

End of Line.

Turn up the subs, Endgame!

Edit: If we are in on this we have to make some "Hay" and "Whey" before someone gets back from searching for funny numbers!
2nd Edit: Just looked at the latest numbers, this might not be the best idea :)

I drove over to microcenter yesterday because they had a 3080ti in stock. Unfortunately someone was checking out with it about the time I walked in the door - if I could land one this month, it could really alter my points.

Wait, did I just put a thumbs-up beneath a post which says that the Marauders are increasing their lead? %-)
I have my 2 best cards doing primegrid, going to check out their progress next.

How's your production faring now? Looking at the EOC stats, it seems to climb back to your usual level!
Well, looking at @petrusbroder's production today (3,105,918 points in the last 24h according to EOC) I guess it's save to assume he was another case of not meeting the new fahcore_22's CUDA requirements :D

Unless... Did he secretly buy a new GPU and is now trying to cover up his tracks with this CUDA issue? :D

Well, I did both: updated the NVIDIA-driver and added an "old" GPU. I like the result though ...

I've added two 980's to my fleet... little bit more PPD but we'll see.

--LANMAN
Mine dropped 8 million ppd... Until Dec 17 or maybe the day before.

Been a long day. I will leave this at the logical conclusion for those that do math by hand... This sub-team so far that may be eventually bowed down too and also as a sub-team categorized as M Crazy!!! is way / whey :) ahead of R2D2!!!

Amazing run so far! Sorry I may not be able to update these sub-stats until later in Feb. 2022, and I know there may be very few that care at that point.... :)

I tried to edited out others that just might at current point totals be between and on the same team as call signs "Endgame" and "Cellarserenade", but this freeware spreadsheet just kept inserting an "Assimilator". Probably appropriate and why argue?

Good luck to the Crunchers!

Edit. Don't know what happened to the McEAC Marauders!!! image in the above. These A.I. rhythms keep inserting them-Elves? "We" might just be in trouble, those that tap on keyboards that is?

Thanks for your daily stats effort, @biodoc :)

According to the graph, the Moonshot Gang is shifting gears and ramping up again... So, only a very short break for the cheering gerbils :cool:

The daily production gap is still 10 M PPD. I've been peddling hard to close that gap including renting a 3090 but I can't do it. :)
