    10 year Diamond badge anniversary of crunching

    At long last I reached a personal milestone of 10 years Diamond crunching badge for projects:
    Smash Childhood Cancer
    FightAIDS@Home-Phase 2
    Mapping Cancer Markers
    Microbiome Immunity Project
    OpenZika

    You never know what new hardware could do to a slight lead.

    A mere new two-socket Epyc server could run 256 WUs at a time...but I have to win that lottery first.

    256 threads running needs 128 cores (with two-way multi threading)
    128 cores is either
    • two 64-core Epyc 7662, 7742 or 7H12, needing one mobo, one PSU, one set or RAM, one SSD, and one video card. In long term maintenance/running costs the cheapest option.
    • two 64-core Epyc 7702Ps, needing two mobo's, two PSUs, two sets or RAM, two SSDs, and two video cards.
    • two Ryzen Threadripper 3990X systems, needing two mobo's, two PSUs, two sets or RAM, two SSDs, and two video cards. <-This might actually be the cheapest option, purchase-wise.
    • eight Ryzen 9 3950X CPUs, needing eight mobo's, eight PSUs, eight sets or RAM, eight SSDs, and eight video cards.
    • sixteen Ryzen 7 3700X CPUs, needing sixteen mobo's, sixteen PSUs, sixteen sets or RAM, sixteen SSDs, and sixteen video cards. Think of the noise and the heat....


    You could do a few systems headless, but I try to have a working GPU with each and every one of my active systems.
