It works also on Quadro series ?
I have this one:

NVIDIA GPU 0: Quadro FX 1800 (driver version 331.82, CUDA version 6.0, compute capability 1.1, 768MB, 8381137MB available, 264 GFLOPS peak)


but cannot get work:

No. Your card must be Compute capability 2.0 or better.

GDDR usage, 621MHz and 457MB


Regarding AVX vs SSE3, on an i73770K there seems to be from 3% to about 15% difference in run times. I expect you would need an ix-4xxx CPU to benefit fully from AVX code developments:

28194832 11760270 53841 30 Dec 2013, 0:47:58 UTC 30 Dec 2013, 4:06:53 UTC Completed and validated 8,747.55 8,665.78 480.00 Period Search Application v102.10 (sse3)

28136775 11746774 53841 29 Dec 2013, 22:36:14 UTC 30 Dec 2013, 2:58:03 UTC Completed and validated 7,588.37 7,517.23 480.00 Period Search Application v102.10 (avx)

If the GPU and CPU WU's are the same size, just different apps, then a GTX770 may be twice as fast as a single i7 CPU thread, but only has 1/4 the performance of the entire CPU. This seems to be the case because they get the same credit (480).

Yes. AVX on 3xxx stuck on memory loading (CPU does two SSE3 op). AVX is for 4xxx CPUs.

Yes. It is.

Yes. It is.


Then I don't understand why you launched this GPU app ?
Is it a test for a futur "different / new type of" WU's ?

Have tryed AVX WU's on an i7-4770K ... but I don't know why, very very slow +
only increasing the CPU temp. I guess one should run AVX on 4 cores only => no real gain <-> SSE3 on 8 cores ...

Wish you a Happy New Year !

To give an option for crunchers to select "right" app and of course to explore usage of GPUs for next development.

Not for now, but we will see in future.

HT cores share FPU units so no profit from HT.

For example:
cpus without HT like i5-4670 can make the same work with AVX as 4770 (SSE3,AVX) and has better power/price ratio.

Could we get an OpenCL-App for AMD GPUs too ?


Open-Cl is on our todo list. One of our volunteers decided to develop opencl app as shool project so we are waiting for him.

What about AVX-App on current AMD CPUs ?


You can try it with app_info, but AMD is very poor on AVX. AMD CPUs simulate AVX with SSE3.

It is a good news. You have done a wonderful Christmas gift! :) But - when will the release of the application for ATI (Radeon)?

Sorry, I do not read written above.

Sorry, no luck here. On CC2.X cards we are limited by block/SMX and registers/SMX so card occupancy is 67% and 550Ti has only 4 SMX. So 4*8 periods calculated in parallel.

My poor little GT610, which is probably one of the slowest GPUs on this project, doesn't think that the new app is very fast.
It took nearly 17 hours to do one work unit, compared with my CPU, which can finish two work units in less than 2½ hours!


610 is very slow, I have three 610 with passive cooling at work.

Thanks for the feedback. :-)

Oh, well...I guess I'll keep that GPU running Einstein.

Great news for the project, but to be honest I am somewhat disappointed by the performance of mid-range card. I guess I will be sticking around with my CPU somewhat longer...

These are expected results. GPUs are very specialized and it's hard to fit code to every hw architecture.
