Folding@Home hits an Exaflop (0 Comments) (link)
 Saturday, 28-March-2020  16:41:04 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Folding@Home's distributed supercomputer continues to break records. In an astounding accomplishment powered by normal people around the world joining forces to beat the coronavirus, the administrators of the Folding@Home network reported today that the network has passed one exaFLOP of compute power, which is the equivalent of ten times the compute power of the world's fastest supercomputer, Summit. It's also more raw compute power than the top 103 supercomputers in the world, combined.

If you want to get involved and help fight COVID-19 with your spare CPU or GPU cycles, just download the client, enter your details and go. To be part of Team OCAU, choose 24 as your team number. Definitely request and (eventually) apply your passcode as that enables you to receive bonus points for completing work units. Jump into this thread if you have any questions.

Kinda hard to give a chipper greeting this week, it's getting crazy out there. One positive aspect is that the forums are busier than they've been in quite a while. If you're new here, welcome! If you've returned due to social isolation boredom, welcome back! Thanks to metamorphosis, mpot, RnR and Andrew this week. Stay safe!








For an extra bonus, here's a silly cat video (turn the sound on) which amused me recently.. enjoy your weekend, as much as possible under the circumstances!

I hope you're all staying safe during these COVID-19 restrictions. If you haven't seen this video yet, please watch it! Update: not from the Government! But good info anyway. In about 8 minutes it clearly explains the current situation, how pandemics behave and why we need to self-isolate:


click for the video!

There's also a very busy discussion thread here in our Current Events forum.

In the meantime, the Folding@Home effort to research COVID-19 has resulted in the most powerful supercomputer in the world, and presumably the most powerful in history. Propelled by average enthusiasts in their shared quest to defeat COVID-19, the Folding@Home network is now pushing out 470 PetaFLOPS of raw compute power. To put that in perspective, that's twice as fast as Summit, the world's fastest supercomputer, making the network faster than any known supercomputer. It's also faster than the top seven supercomputers in the world, combined. More info here.

On that note, if you do have an idle GPU and want to get involved with Folding@Home, as mentioned earlier you can start by downloading the client, and if you want to be part of Team OCAU, simply select team 24 in the options. We've seen a lot of new active users join the team lately which is great. There's a discussion thread here if you need help setting it up.

However, make sure you only get the Folding@Home client from the official site as there is some sneaky malware doing the rounds, thanks metamorphosis.

Another way you can use your time productively is to help classify museum collections online. Online DigiVol volunteers are asked to transcribe specimen labels, notebooks, field data and even camera-trap images of Aussie animals. You can volunteer for as long (or as little) as you like. Volunteers don’t need to commit to a specific duration. “We value everybody’s contributions no matter how big or small,” says DigiVol’s Danielle Northey. Spend your newly found time at home trawling through not only the Australian Museum’s archives, but also that of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the National History Museum of Utah, to name a few.

Meanwhile the NBN might not be up to the task of entertaining everyone at home, so the Government has asked media providers to lower the bandwidth of their streaming products. Streaming companies such as Netflix and Stan have been asked by communications minister Paul Fletcher to consider reducing the amount of data required for streaming videos over the internet as the national broadband network plans for large swathes of the population working from home.

Otherwise, there's a few free games available to tide you over during isolation. The freebies span multiple platforms and storefronts, with most of the options available on PC from stores like Steam, GOG, and Itch.io. Notably, you can snag Tomb Raider (2013) and the spin-off Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for free on Steam right now, while The Stanley Parable and Watch Dogs are currently free on Epic. On mobile, be sure to snag Alto's Adventure and Alto's Odyssey along with Kingdom Rush Frontiers. That article is a few days old but hopefully the goodies are still available.

If you have an idle GPU, you could help out with COVID-19 research by joining Folding@Home. I have started again after probably a decade off and boy do the GPUs help rack up the points now!

If you're keen, consider joining up under Team 24 for OCAU. You can get started by downloading the client, and there's a discussion thread here if you have any questions.

This from OCAU member tired: Folding@Home taking up the fight against COVID-19. Folding@home is joining researchers around the world working to better understand the 2019 Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to accelerate the open science effort to develop new life-saving therapies. By downloading Folding@Home, you can donate your unused computational resources to the Folding@home Consortium, where researchers working to advance our understanding of the structures of potential drug targets for 2019-nCoV that could aid in the design of new therapies. The data you help us generate will be quickly and openly disseminated as part of an open science collaboration of multiple laboratories around the world, giving researchers new tools that may unlock new opportunities for developing lifesaving drugs.

BabelTechReviews have a 12-game VR showdown between Navi and Turing. We now present a twelve-game VR performance showdown using FCAT VR measuring frametimes and unconstrained performance.

TechSpot meanwhile used a Threadripper 3990X to push the VRMs on their motherboard. The CPU of choice is naturally the Threadripper 3990X and for testing we have two configurations: a completely stock configuration with nothing but XMP loaded, and a second OC configuration which sees the 3990X overclocked to 3.8 GHz using 1.3v. We could have run at 4 GHz but we didn't think much would change, so to ensure stability across all boards we opted for 3.8 GHz. For those wondering, the typical power draw from the wall was around 450 watts when stock, while the overclock configuration was sucking down around 850 watts (!).

OCClub have a slightly oddball article about aspect ratio and its effect on FPS. How much an impact, if any, does the aspect ratio have on performance? Beyond any doubt, 16:9 is the most common aspect ratio, and the differences between a 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 display or image can be thought of in terms of sampling frequency (120 for 1920x1080 and 160 for 2560x1440), but between widescreen 16:9 and ultrawide 21:9 or standard 4:3, the differences are not so linear.

The EU is set to introduce Right to Repair legislation. If the European Parliament were to pass legislation, it would extend its eco-design law to cover phones, tablets and computers, and likely force tech companies to completely rethink the designs of their products. The legislation would also require those same companies to provide easy to access information related to the repairability and durability of their products. At the moment, most consumers have to turn to websites like iFixit to find information on how to fix their devices. "Single-use will be restricted, premature obsolescence tackled and the destruction of unsold durable goods banned," the Commission said.

I managed to revive my trusty Dell PowerEdge R610 server yesterday. It turns out "PCIE Training Error" means "reseat the middle riser". Of course I only discovered that AFTER spending a-case-of-beer money on a new RAID controller. Anyhoo..

A few people sent in this interactive COVID-19 map which seems to be one of the best ways to keep track of the spread of the virus, if you're so inclined. There's also a discussion thread, of course.

HotHardware have info on the AMD CPUs and GPUs that will power the new El Capitan supercomputer. According to AMD, its next-generation Radeon Instinct GPU accelerators will be deployed featuring advanced high bandwidth memory (HBM). The company will also be using third-generation Infinity Fabric Architecture that provides a high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnect to string together four Radeon Instinct GPUs with a single EPYC processor (per node).

Guru3D meanwhile compared 21 GPUs in Basemark GPU v1.2. There is an updated benchmark in town, fabricated by ex-Futuremark employees Basemark GPU has been released in an aim to measure GPU on many platforms, Windows, Android, IOS, Linux and so on. In this article however we'll focus a bit more on API testing inbetween OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX12.

Back to HotHardware, with a guide to retro gaming on FPGA power. Built on the Terasic DE10-nano (an Intel-based System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGA board), the MiSTer project strives to accurately recreate computers, consoles, and arcade hardware from the 1970s, 80s, and early 90s. Terasic's small development board is a staple in universities and technical schools worldwide as an educational tool. That means it's always in mass production and the resultant price is low enough to make a setup relatively affordable.

On a related note, March's Retro Racing thread is out, and the game this month is Sega Rally Championship from 1994. Join the OCAU Retro Driving Club in a different retro driving game each month and see who can lay down the fastest lap!

A few people sent word that SETI@home is shutting down. In an announcement posted yesterday, the project stated that they will no longer send data to SETI@home clients starting on March 31st, 2020 as they have reached a "point of diminishing returns" and have analyzed all the data that they need for now. Instead, they want to focus on analyzing the back-end results in order to publish a scientific paper. For SETI@home, Folding@Home and other distributed computing projects, see our Team OCAU forum. Or, more likely nowadays, our Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Mining forum.

On a more fun note, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is 42 this year! The number, of course, correspondents to the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything – as well as the number of times this ‘mostly harmless’ planet has circled its small unregarded yellow sun in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the galaxy since Douglas Adams’ sci-fi comedy was first broadcast on Radio 4 on March 8 1978.

AMD have revealed more details of their CPU-to-GPU Infinity Fabric. AMD's charts highlight the divide between power efficiency of various compute solutions, like semi-custom SoCs and FPGAs, GPGPUs, and general purpose x86 compute cores, and highlights the FLOPS performance relative to both power consumed and the amount of silicon area required to deliver that performance. As we can see, general purpose CPUs lag behind, but optimizations for vectorized code that use dedicated SIMD pathways can boost performance in both metrics. However, GPUs still hold a commanding lead in terms of both power efficiency and area consumed.

Guru3D compared GPU compute performance across 20 graphics cards. We will not peek at game performance with graphics cards for a change, instead, we'll be firing of three render compute solutions to see how they react towards the twenty graphics cards we fire fire off at them. What's the best GPU to use for GPU assisted content rendering? Their site seems to be having issues at the moment, maybe try back again later..

IntelInside spotted 10Gbps internet in Japan. Back in 2017, NBN's then-CEO Bill Morrow said Australians wouldn't use 1Gbps plans even if they were offered free of charge. "Even if we offered it for free, we see the evidence around the world that they wouldn’t use it anyway... we know there are things on the horizon that are going to increase the need for further demand," Morrow said, as reported by the Courier Mail.

For something different, BlueRaven sent in this guided tour of a rocket factory. Back in September of 2018, Destin from the Smarter Every Day youtube channel met Tory Bruno, the CEO of United Launch Alliance, at the launch of the Parker Solar Probe. They obviously hit it off, and he had the good fortune to be offered a personal guided tour of the Delta IV Heavy launch pad.
