    August has hit the calendar, again a traditionally weak challenge month. Everybody is either away on holidays, or planning to do, or has just come back so it seems. CRUNCHERS SANS FRONTIERES are stil having theirbreak, but Gridcoin have come to the rescue! What do we do, and when? We start on August 2 -with three of the four challenges for this month, poor planning. First, a project challenge:


    August 02 to August 05 - Summer Olympics Challenge
    PrimeGrid organizes a The Riesel Problem Sieve challenge. To participate in the Challenge, please select the TRP-Sieve project in your PrimeGrid preferences section.
    The challenge will begin August 2nd 2016, 21:00:00 UTC and end August 5th 2016, 21:00:00 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux , Windows and MacIntel 32 bit and 64 bit.
    For sieve tasks such as these, they recommend turning hyperthreading *on* -if your CPU supports it.
    ATTENTION: Please note the atypical starting and ending times of this challenge, three hours later than nominal.
    NOTE: The countdown clock on the front page uses the host computer time. Therefore, if your computer time is off, so will the countdown clock. For precise timing, use the UTC Time in the data section to the left of the countdown clock.
    Scoring Information: Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER August 2nd 2016, 21:00:00 UTC and received BEFORE August 5th 2016, 21:00:00 UTC will be considered for credit. Since they use BOINC credit for challenge scoring, each task will be worth 109.22 points. A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.

    PCIe bandwidth at its limits?

    Hey guys

    PCI Express 3.0 seemed like it had a whole lot of bandwidth for anything else we could think of and more. A single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot could deliver up to 128Gbits/s, and on the storage...
