Hello!
Just joined a while ago (less than an hour) and plan on adding a Ryzen 1800x to the project before bed. The other 100 plus threads will come tomorrow. It's odd this project is not listed in Boinc's directory when clicking add project.
Are runtimes per WU pretty consistent? Am I okay adding a low powered Intel Atom?
I know there is AVX and FMA support, but is there an advantage in Linux vs. Windows on this project?
thanks!

I am fairly new here as well, but welcome! There is also an SSE2 version, but AVX is fastest for my Ryzen cpus. The runtimes are consistent on my end. As for the rest I'm not sure. Cheers!

Runtimes on my Ryzen's appear to be 3 hours and change. Not horrible I suppose.

The powers that be that add projects to the list of Boinc Project in the Boinc Manager have some criteria that TN-Grid doesn't meet right now. Personally I would LOVE to see ALL Boinc Projects listed maybe with a 'apha' or something code for those that don't meet the current list criteria.

Some others are:
https://boinc.ibercivis.es/ibercivis/ they also do COVID-19 research

https://root.ithena.net/usr/

http://bearnol.is-a-geek.com/wanless2/

https://wuprop.boinc-af.org/

http://yafu.myfirewall.org/yafu/

An easy way to find Projects is to go to Free-DC
https://stats.free-dc.org/ and search for users and what Projects they are running or have run.

Thank you so much. This is immensely helpful.
Does boincstats/bam offer the same as far as all projects, or are some left out?
Working on a goal (all be it a slow one, apparently) for WCG, then I plan on tackling other projects that are helping with Coronavirus.
I have nearly 100 threads of X86 (44 of which are 1st and 3rd generation Ryzens), and just snatched up a few Raspberry pi's for crunching - how is TN grid for getting running on ARM? I know other projects need different libraries installed if running 64 bit Linux. Android is definitely a bit iffy and I'm hesitant to try it on mine.

First BoincStats is a stats site while BAM is a Boinc add-on that helps you manage your account. I beleive Bam still leaves some of the Projects out just like the Boinc Manager does, I do not use Bam so could be wrong.

Second I don't use Raspberry Pi's anymore so can't help you with them.

The reason the project isn't on the BOINC Manager list is because the project cannot handle the large influx of users and devices that would result from that addition. The server just isn't powerful enough.


Yes, Linux is significantly faster than Windows.

EDIT: Just realised I replied to 1 year old thread lol
