    i got a couple people to join from the official AMD Discord! one question, tho, do they need to show their computers so that we get points? or is simply joining the team and crunching enough?

    Crunching for AMD Users is enough.

    how will my points compare if i run 18 threads (1950X/16c/32t) vs 32 lower RAM units?
    Disable the smt for a while to test it (16 threads with double the ram)

    They do not have to show their computers, but they do have to allow data export to statistic sites, part of that EU privacy whatever. WCG and Einstein both support it, and I am pretty sure new accounts do not export by default.

    Sprint is LCH, is there any specific app(s) I should focus on? Or at least ones that don't run in a virtual environment that crap errored out 100% last Pentathlon.

    any idea what sites they have to allow data export to? do i have to post their id/key/code to some site for them (if they don't want to add it themselves)?

    and is this the "weak key" or something?

    edit: is it one of these?

    Per project on your account page there *can* be a setting to allow export -to whatever external site.
    Einstein, WCG and LHC for sure have it.

    That's good to know, as I haven't ran LHC since it was last part of the Pentathlon, I will be sure to adjust my settings.

    With the third day coming to a close, are we planning on making a forth throw? I don't want to be the only one wasting cycles if we are not.

    Our second throw was such that a fourth is needed, I'm afraid....perhaps even a fifth

    Our third throw was pretty close to our first, so I will spool for a 4th, if we can land it in the same ball park as our first and third, I feel a fifth would be a total waste of resources better spent on LCH or WCG.
