As you can see all the big crunchers are off. Its summer in Sydney so it can get hot. While I have air conditioning I won't use it to cool the farm, I would rather turn the farm off. Not only is this better for the environment but it also saves my electricity bill.

Intel ARC
I had a quick look at the Intel ARC A770 but decided not to get one. The Linux support for them hasn't landed in Debian yet and performance is about the same as the RTX 3060 Ti, which I already use. To do a firmware update one has to use the Intel Management Engine, which of course is only available on Intel based motherboards. Lastly BOINC and the BOINC-based projects don't currently support them. This should improve over time but I think its too early to get one.
