9th of December

Farm status
Intel GPUs
All running Einstein gravity wave work

Nvidia GPUs
Two running Einstein gravity wave work

Raspberry Pis
All running Einstein BRP4 work

Other news
As mentioned above just about everything is running Einstein gravity wave work. Its a CPU only application. Tasks take from 12 to 16 hours depending on the frequency of the work unit. The weather has been mostly hot and then we get a a cooler day or two when I have the entire farm going. The Intel GPU machines currently have 64 tasks and the Nvidia GPU machines have 24 running.

I've been watching the EVGA 6Gb GTX1060's (as replacement for both GTX750Ti's and GTX970's). Nobody seems to have any in stock. Even EVGA is out of stock. Once they become available I will try and get some to replace the existing GPU's.

There's supposed to be an official launch of AMD's Zen CPU in the middle of December. I will look at replacing my existing 6 core/12 thread machines (which use 140 watts) with the Zen 6 core/12 thread part that is said to only use 95 watts and is faster.
