[Milkyway@home] New Poll Regarding GPU Application of N-Body

Hey everyone,

We are currently looking at making a GPU version of N-Body. This code has been under development for quite some time, and the base code is finally working, though we would still need to implement some other features to run it alongside the CPU version. However, due to the complexity of our code and our need for double precision, the GPU version has a similar runtime to that of the CPU version, though there may be some speed-up on professional grade GPU cards. For reference, the GPU version of the Separation code is roughly 50-60 times faster than its CPU counterpart depending on the machine. Keeping that in mind, do you guys still want a GPU version of N-Body? I have put up a basic straw poll on If you wish to elaborate on your choice, please feel free to comment below.

Thank you all for your input, time, and consideration,

[Milkyway@home] Separation Validator Updates/Brief Server Outage(s)

Hello Everyone,

I will be updating the separation validator starting at 3PM ET. The server will go down for a short time and then come back up. In the case that the new validator causes problems, the server will go back down again to revert to the old validator. I will be monitoring the situation and would appreciate input on any workunits that fail validation after the new validator goes live.

The server may go down/back up a few times during this process. Thanks for your patience. I'll keep you all posted on the status of things as they happen.
