You have used GPUs in the past. But as I understand it, you didn't have enough work for them, and the output files were too big anyway.

Might this now change? Could you consider GPUs again?

But I wonder why the Ryzen isn't faster than the old i5, even with the optimized app and 600 MHz more clock speed. I saw this also on other Projects.
Seems to be that most of the apps from all projects are optimized for Intel.

It is more because with the i5-3570 you are using a full core, whereas with the Ryzen you are using a virtual core. So it is not bad at all, though you may be right that it is optimized for Intel.

OK, I did that, but now get the message:

Message from server: Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of gene@home PC-IM.

Also, it won't download more work, since it says the computer has reached the daily quota of 1 task.

New app version is ready! It is available at the same place as usual: In order to install it, do following steps:
- finish or abort all existing tasks (they will be aborted after install automatically);
- stop BOINC;
- unpack selected version to project's directory (path like C:\Users\All Users\BOINC\projects\gene.disi.unitn.it_test\ on Windows, and /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/gene.disi.unitn.it_test on Linux);
- start BOINC again
After doing this, app name should change to "Gene Network Application (Opti v1.2)". You should also see message "Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform" in event log for TN-Grid project.

I did all that, using the SSE2 version for Linux on my i7-4770, and got that message on reboot. But I am getting only errors.

Outstanding, I will try the new CPU app on both Windows and Ubuntu as a baseline for the GPU app.

Is a GPU version still under consideration? I get the impression that it would work, with all the programming talent that Daniel (and others) bring to the project, but there may not be enough work to support it.

Where are we on that?
