November again! And while it is 21 degrees centigrade outside here, the highest temperature for this date since recorded history and nobody here doubts the effects of global warming, the Dutch Speedskaters have their most difficult race of the year: the Dutch Single Distance championships! Success comes through hard work, as we crunchers know all too good...Speaking of it: Where's our hard work?

November 07 to November 11 - CRUNCHATHLON GPUGRID [MONTHLY RUN - RACE III]
For the GPU heavies: Crunchers sans frontieres has a GPUGrid challenge. Used to be -and AFAIK still is- nVidia only, Double Precision -despite what I said earlier- is no prerequisite (but when your nVidia card DOES have double precision in a usable amount it is bound to have very good Single Precision capability -the last Maxwell chips have DP at 1/32(!) of the SP performance...). My GTX 650 just does not cut it though...My GTX 260 did, before it died -to great lament of the power company-...
