(I never wanted to update my Pascal based hosts from their 3xx driver. I am now glad I did so for SRBase after all; it'll now pay off for GPUGrid too.)Toni of gpugrid.net said:Dears, thanks for your patience.
I updated the acemd3 apps.
Also, I verified that there were very few results by apps from the old CUDA version, so I won't be re-deploying them. In other words, apps now require CUDA 10 (Linux) and CUDA 10.1 (Windows). In terms of drivers versions:
CUDA 10.1 (10.1.105) >= 418.39 for Windows
CUDA 10.0 (10.0.130) >= 410.48 for Linux
The project does have applications for Windows, Linux, and MacOS, but currently does not have any work available for Windows. It also limits tasks in progress to 2X the number of CPU cores, so no bunkering. But the server seems to be responsive and the admin is posting regular status updates.
I am on the new/current URL. The server status page said that it had no work available for Windows when I posted that message. They must have added more since then.
(source)On January 1 Eric Driver said:I just released the new app version for Linux Nvidia Cuda.
I tested it on 100 WUs and it averaged about 33% faster over the previous Cuda version.
I am now making these same improvements to the openCL versions. If all goes well, I should have new apps for Windows and AMD cards within a week.
Not able to attach a client either, although I was able to log in to the site with my very old account. It would be interesting to see a project be revived after many years of inactivity. Especially if they actually keep it active this time.
edit: I haven't done a lot of testing yet, but with about a dozen GPU tasks completed on a Quadro RTX 3000 (roughly equivalent to a GTX 1080ti), the tasks averaged 995 seconds run time and 648 credits. So about 0.68 credits per second.
There are tasks available for Van Der Waerden Numbers now, but I suspect they are just for testing and not doing any actual meaningful work yet, since they only take 2-3 seconds to complete. They are rewarding credits, though...Not able to attach a client either, although I was able to log in to the site with my very old account.

edit: On 1/18/2021 I am now able to attach a computer to the project. It still is not fully up and running, but does seem to be making progress.
