ServeTheHome recent joined the Tom's Hardware team with an impressively-fast Gigabyte G481-S80 server armed with a whopping eight Nvidia Tesla P100-SXM2's running for the cause.
Is that why their pulling ahead now?
I don't see a particularly strong user in their team stats. (Edit, what borandi said.)Anybody check the stats on that boy ? what ppd is it getting ?
Except EXT64, but this user was running for Tom's with high output for months/ years already.
Tom's advantage is purely that they have more users, thus certainly more folding slots which keep requesting work.
When work scarcity subsides, e.g. when LTT users withdraw, we'll be at an advantage again. LTT are holding a Folding event from March 27 to April 10. So, work availability will go up after April 10 23:59 GMT, which is 4½ days before the end of our race against Tom's.
PS, the output of Tom's, PCMR, and ourselves dropped at the same time when LTT's output rose sharply. Ours dropped considerably more than Tom's.
