I started setting no new tasks hours ago, and left a 2 hour buffer, as once you kill a task, and add no new work, the others may finish faster. I have about 52 units still that may finish, but I think unless somebody dumps some huge bunkers, we have 1st overall, and I have 2nd as an individual.Day 9.5 stats:

Probably time for some to set No New Tasks. Or maybe start one of the several projects that will shut down soon.
In the past, if I wanted to run [m] simultaneous tasks with [n] threads each, I used to set my app_config.xml's like this:I asked for more work, BOINC gave me a bunch of work (well beyond by queue request) of like 20 tasks [...]
<cmdline>-t [n]</cmdline>= as usual
With the latter, in case that you still have some SoB to finish, you risk that the client intelligently suspends the boring old SoB work and runs the shiny new non-competition work instead.Probably time for some to set No New Tasks. Or maybe start one of the several projects that will shut down soon.
You know I still can't believe that no one even replied to my post in CPUs about how my 4 Genoas destroyed all Intel, including the 3595x, and almost 2000 Intel cores (older, by 7 years, yes). Anyway, I know, and you all know the power of Genoa.
Yes, but the 6th 7950x was not live until about 1/2 way through the competition. Same with the dual 7V12'as and the 7763's. I would have to check the dates, but they were several days after the start.Why?
You had more than just 4 Genoa's running in the competition. Those 4 Genoa's had a combined core count of 288 cores.
You had, I think 6x 7950x CPUs to finish. That's another 96 cores.
Two 7V12s. That's 128 cores.
Maybe some other stuff I can't remember or you didn't mention.
Total: 512 cores
Pavel has 70 Xeon servers, with dual CPUs. Most of his CPUs are V2 Xeons that came out in 2013. That's nearly 10 years old. Not 7.
His Xeons range from 10 core 2660 V2 to 12 core 2695 V2 CPUs. 70 servers with dual CPUs is 140 CPUs.
If they were all 12 core parts that's a total of 1,680 Cores.
Are Genoa EPYCs extremely good? Yes.
Can 4 Geona CPUs beat 140 Xeons? No.
Huh. Must be gremlins someplace. I copy and paste from my script that gets the stats from PG.Thanks for all the days of stats.
Oh, sure, I pass biodoc and I'm no longer in the stats. How much did he pay you. 🤔
I checked again for the eight remaining ks, for min n and max n per k. Allocation sizes are 18.0…20.0 MB now (on Haswell).Here are the data allocation sizes — i.e. processor cache demand per task — at the current leading edge [...]
