Notes for Nov 30 2020
A weekly summary of news and notes for [email protected]
Only a short update this week, as we've been running analysis on the data collected so far in preparation for a paper, and it was a holiday weekend in our part of the world. The new Linux/CUDA client appears to be working well, so we can stop spamming the news feed with updated each week. More information in the news below.

Nice to hear that the Linux/CUDA client is working fine. Thanks!

Thanks for the update. Even though the snapshot data you include is at best indicative, the recent trend in the compute power development seems promising. Looks like the GPU rollout really starts to speed things up.
This week's combined compute power is ~53% higher than only 1.5 months ago. While Mumps is still pulling away with a comfortable lead, others are picking up. It seems that Mumps will be the first to reach the 500m badge. Interesting though that this project's top daily credits days all date back to the beginning of the project...https://www.boincstats.com/stats/190/project/detail/bestxdays
I suspected that GPUs would do the trick and quickly take the lead.
