I thought it was 151, but ended up getting "PRP...

Got it, thanks. I actually had an old Google account that I hadn't used in a long time, I just resurrected and its churning away on Colab now. I have just left the two settings as "Let GPU72 Decide".

So set aside anyone else's opinion, or enjoyment for a moment. What, in your technical opinion, is the best use of a good GPU right now? I understand not everyone agrees and that's perfectly...

However, as I've commented on a previous thread, the time I actually get a GPU in Colab seems to be dwindling. I've taken the advice and...

Thank you! That is what I'll use going forward.

It takes 40 minutes for my GPU to finish a 74-75, and 80 minutes for a 75-76.

I like the fact that I'm contributing to where its needed most.
