    Hi, My name is Richard and i live in a small village called Hurworth-On-Tees in the NorthEast part of the UK. I have been building my own PC's since 1999 when i decided that the PC's on sale at the time were a rip off. I started off on AMD K6-III 500's then Athlons ( Thunderbirds ), Durons ( Applebred's ) and Athlon ( Bartons ) then onto AMD64's and FX-65 and Opterons. I am currently running a Phenom II x 6 1090T which is still quite punchy but looking forward the getting a Ryzen. Been a big AMD and ATI fan from the get go and like to run projects when i can.
    Currently i am not working due to a medical condition which means i spend a lot of time at home with our two cats while my long suffering wife goes to work.

    Nice to make your acquaintance Viper68 aka Richard. You will find we are a very chatty bunch and appreciate people like you looking for a home to find quality information and nice people to work within resolving any issue you might have in working the DC systems we all enjoy.

    You had a good start! My 2nd AMD system had a K6-III 400 (running @450MHz). Those were days....still have that system somewhere on the attic.

    Welcome Richard. Yes go get a Ryzen they run well. Threadripper is a little too expensive for now.

    It all depends where you live: A Ryzen 7 1800X is just as expensive as a Threadripper 1900 over here -and the Threadripper mobo can be filled later with better CPUs (and much more RAM too).
    See my thread on building a 16-thread cruncher in 'Hardware'. Things are different in Oz...an unhealthy AU$140 between Ryzen 7 1800X and Threadripper 1900X

    BTW: Prices for Ryzen 7 are slowly dropping (here at least), while Threadripper and EPYC remain stable.

    Ryzen 7 1700 vs Threadripper 1900X, note the difference in time scale.

    No problem, i don't expect immediate replies to things, we all have lives outside of the internet and Facebook - thanks for approving it.

    Hello I'm Michael (aka Miguel - long story involving being born in Argentina to English parents during a military dictatorship) I'm 39 and currently based in Argentina for health reasons however do research for the University of Sussex in England. I started the Distributed Hardware Evolution Project in 2003 whilst doing my PhD and unfortunately had to shut it down as my subsequent employer was very demanding. However I always yearned to restart it and now 14 years later I've packed in my other job and am doing just that. The results gained in that short period are still the best in the field even 14 years later proving it was a worthwhile research direction. We're about to finally publish the results in a good journal (so far they're only in an internal paper http://users.sussex.ac.uk/~mmg20/files/garvie_sc.pdf and my thesis http://users.sussex.ac.uk/~mmg20/files/thesis.pdf) and always acknowledging the contributions of this wonderful community - the first paper explicitly mentions AMD_Users . Now it's been quite a bit of work to get this working and I'm seeing the distributed computing community has changed somewhat and is almost saturated with projects so I'm wondering how many people will be joining dhep.

    My last desktop was an overclocked Athlon, but that was a long time ago and have had iBooks and mac books since then as have had to be mostly on the move.

    Hi Michael

    Welcome to our forums!
    It's a pleasure to meet the creator of DHEP. I did not have the pleasure to participate back then, but I recorded our team's performance on it in our Wiki: http://www.amdusers.com/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=DHEP
    Indeed, the Distributed Computing landscape has shifted in ways that I never imagined, and it is a bit saturated yes, but I did not have the opportunity to try DHEP back when it was first out so I'm going to make sure to not miss it this time around.
    Now to try and install it and get some CPU cycles going
