Hello !

RE : MOORE's Law

Today is the fifth birthday of your CAMB 2.16 app.

Don't you think it might be worthwhile to consider the developpment of new versions / apps ?

As you know, CPUs as well as GPUs evolved a lot since 2009 ...

Proposing no evolution may result in lack of interest of participants for this project.

Having said that, BADGES might attract a lot of new crunchers ;)

I know this project is NOT DYING, and I will try to run it more often than before, especially if and when optimised apps become available.

Thank You

Kind Regards

Phil1966

Hello Phil,

This sounds like a reasonable and legitimate request to make. I will forward your message to our system administrator and let you know what he thinks.

Best wishes for a great weekend.

Hello Phil,

Our system administrator has informed me that we do indeed have a new version. For its implementation, we are waiting for one of our collaborators to finish working on a piece of software that would be critical for that.

Please accept my best regards and let me know if you have any other questions.

Dear Faik,

I hope this message finds you well.

I waited 6 months before asking again ...

Would be really nice to have recent apps, using SSE3, AVX, FMA3, ...
(user's choice or automatic)

As 10 hours for a 48000 GFLOPS WU is ... too long.

But again, I am not an IT specialist => don't know what's behind the name and figures.

Thank You

Best Regards

Philippe
