I don't like having all my computers in my house, so many of them are on another property that I own. Not that it matters, but you seem so curious.
My comment was about TNG. You had so many I assumed they were cloud, even on 2 properties. But congrats on being number one on the team, we are doing well in first place ! You even added 2 more today , 58 !

Sweet seventeen... I may have to fire up some CPUs after all, in addition to my lone few GPUs, in order to stay at 17th. There is a SETI.Germany member in the rear view mirror with difficult to gauge discontinuous output.

It's warmer outside than I like though.

I was hoping to finish in the top 100 with just two moderately nice GPUs (3060Ti and RTX Quadro 4000) but it's looking like that might not happen. :(

I could ensure the top 100 finish if I let my small collection of mostly junk CPUs also run, but they are all busy with other things that are more important (to me) than a single PrimeGrid challenge...

I'll just have to wait and see what happens in the next five days. :)

It's so cold here that all the heat I can make does not cause a problem...
same here. Its freezing outside and I have all the doors and windows open, and its 80F inside !

Time to fire up more stuff ! I have 3 Rome 64 core, 2 2080TI's, 4 Titan V's, a 2970wx Threadripper and a 7542 Rome.

I just need to run my electric car 230 volt 30 amp into the house !

Edit,,,, Not to forget my 256 thread dual 7V12's !!!!

Well, I was stingy and kept it to a level at which I didn't have to keep any window open, at least on workdays when I'm away for much of the day. But some windows need to be open now on the weekend, and if I add anything, a stand fan will probably be involved too. PPD/W of the CPUs is way behind my GPUs'.

Truly impressive output @crashtech ! Your output alone would put you in 7th place in the team standings!
Two members with enough credits to beat the 7th rank team on their own (Crashtech and Mark), and another with enough to beat the 8th ranked team (Skillz). You people are nuts! :D

I could beat the 42nd ranked team...42 is a good number! :D

Now a friendly reminder to watch your six ;)
That's going to be a bit difficult for me for two reasons: After I gained some weight yesterday and more today, those six are rather phat now and require a fisheye lens to watch. And I am distracted by secretly plotting to overtake a couple of guys in front of me.

Had a long power outage last night, long enough that I fell asleep and lost 9 hours.

Noticed this on the PG forums today.

Seems we have moved to a new level on GFN 20.
Thanks for the pointer. Earlier today I have noticed a speed difference between older "_1" resends and fresh "_0" tasks and thought that the increase of run time was more than expected. Credit per result was not changed proportionally. Many people have somewhat lower PPD now, from what I saw at several stats graphs.

Edit,
My 6500xt went form 16500secs to 22500secs.
RTX 4090 @320 W: ~1,640 --> ~2,520 s
I don't see a change on the EPYC yet. But I tend to buffer more than others, because of unreliable cable internet.

No, my guess its your queue length.

My 3xxx cards significantly increased.
4090 unchanged. 3080TI slower. Titan V VERY slow. The older they get the more they increased. 3090TI and 4090 are about the same.

Welcome to the team and thanks for the assistance! Glad to have you around.

I don't see a change on the EPYC yet.

This is what I am seeing on my 4090s also.

CPUs are not effected by this change though so we shouldn't see an immediate ~50% increase in run times on GFN 20 CPU work.

I have also noticed that the points have increased slightly per WU but not significantly. Somewhere around 33k to about 34.2k points per WU.
