So Nvidia cards just don't do as well in this project? I guess that explains the low credits I am getting compared to other GPU projects.I added some nVidia, not all. It's painful to watch them get smoked by my old AMD GPUs
I suspect that "other guys like it" comment might be pointing at me since I've been running the project for a bit. But no, I don't like it. Science seems sketchy at best, support doesn't seem to exist at all. I'm only running it to get another milestone on my Free-DC stats.Hi
Not impressed then? Not one for me as I don't use Linux, other guys in the team seem to like it though!
A lot of smart people don't.Do they like the science behind it?
Alex Kruppa said:I adivse anyone against spending any non-trivial amount of cpu time on this algorithm. How it works is quite clear and well understood, as is the fact that is has no chance of finding a factor of appreciable size (except some rare cases where (N-1,p-1) is very large, and for those there are much better methods). This algorithm is useless, running it on more cpus won't make it any better.
One could make the argument that mining cryptocurrency is more useful.R. D. Silverman said:Bearnol's claim to the contrary, I understand his proposal quite well. It is strictly an exponential time algorithm and is actually worse than trial division. It is pointless.
