16th of July

Farm status
Intel GPUs
All running Asteroids

Nvidia GPUs
One running Asteroids, one off and the other two in pieces (see below)

Raspberry Pis
All running Einstein BRP4 work

Machine shuffling
As mentioned above two of the Nvidia GPU machines are in pieces. They've been decommissioned while I get a couple more of the i7-6700's. Actually cannibalised is probably a better description. I've also got a couple of i5's on order that will become two new Nvidia GPU machines. The computer shop is still awaiting Asus motherboards.

After this the Intel GPU part of the farm will consist of 8 x i7-6700's. The idea is to have CPU crunchers (the i7-6700's) and GPU crunchers with one or two GPU's each. I still need to get the dual GTX750Ti cards into dedicated GPU crunchers too, but the GTX970's that came out of the two machines will be done first. Oh and I have a bunch of i7-3770 based motherboards looking for a home.

The newer Nvidia 1070 and 1080 cards are too expensive to consider at the moment, but I will look at replacing the GTX970's once the price is more reasonable.
