1.05 Quintillion Floating-point Operations Since 2006

1.05 Quintillion Floating-point Operations Since 2006.

You ask me what is that?

It's my humble total amount of computing power donated to Einstein@Home since 2006.

I've used a variety of computers since 2006, and I'm quite happy with the GPU computation.

Ubuntu 16.04 on HP Proliant ML115 G5


Ubuntu 16.04 on HP Proliant ML115 G5 installed great. The CPU on my Proliant ML115 G5 has been swapped to Phenom II X4 2.6GHz, and the GPU board added (Geforce GTX 950 by MSI). I also changed the HDD to SSD by CFD using a TOSHIBA SSD.

So, the total price for this machine is: server: 9800yen +Phenom II X4 CPU 14,000 yen + 21,000 yen for the Geforce GTX 950 + 9000 yen for the SSD made by CFD. So in total, this HP Proliant ML115 G5 is 53800 yen. ($527.83 USD at the current exchange rate)

I ran BOINC on this machine, and the GPU task of Einstein@Home is working well. I already finished one task (GPU) since yesterday (or was it two?).

I've successfully installed the GPU version of Tensorflow on this machine. :-)
I'm going to Fujisawa later on today to buy a Tensorflow book for my research.

Currently in the Process of Installing Tensorflow on Ubuntu 16.04

I'm currently in the Process of Installing Tensorflow on Ubuntu 16.04 with a Geforce GTX 950 machine.

I'm hoping it works! :-)

CUDA
cuDNN

etc. etc. etc.

Sigmarion 3 works with 64GB microSDXC!

Sigmarion 3 works with 64GB microSDXC!

The way I made it work is that I bought a SDXC to Compact Flash adapter called ADR-SDCF2 by SANWA Supply.  Since you can't format microSDXC to FAT32 by default on Windows OS, I used Ridgecrop Consultants' fat32format GUI version. (Click on the screenshot to download their site).


I used a microSDXC to SDXC adapter then inserted that to ADR-SDCF2. 64GB microSDXC works like a charm on my Sigmarion 3!

See you till next time!
