I'm running debian linux on the so-pine64. Linux runs fine, albeit a bit slow, but when I try to run mprime it says:cannot execute binary file. George told me mprime only runs on Intel-compatible...

$0.02/hr+ is equal to the $9 that I mentioned for a 76M exponent. I think I amortized the hardware in 2 or 2.5 years for that estimate. Currently with 14 nm CPUs however, (that was with 22 nm...

So what would something like 76M be ~$3-$4? (more like a world-record LL, bigger FFT). And all this doesn't take much of your own time to start and restart (which has some value)? And you can get a...

Instead of talking about 'what it would do,' and 'not much agreement,' why not try it. It's free. Do some tests and report back how it goes. I'd love to find a service that could make this work. My...

That was 2x my cost on a 75M exponent. I figured I would be willing to pay 2x for not having a hot office, having free space, not having to maintain computers etc.

Right, the cloud resources are nearly limitless- # cpu,memory,disk space. LL makes use of fast cores and fast memory, not a lot of memory nor disc space. It's kind of special, and I think George has...

The 780Ti was/is reasonable for LL. It does the equivalent of ~5-6 cpu cores. It cost $380 a year ago, plugs into a slot so nothing extra is needed. With a cpu you have to buy all the periphery...

So do I have this correct. The new Pascal Tesla is twice the bandwidth as my 780Ti, and ~25 times the flops, so it would be ~50x faster at LL testing? ...all while using less power than my 1 card?

So will there be an in between card, like a pascal titan, that can do reasonable FP64 and not cost a fortune? Or are we just done doing LL on these cards?

I think his script is to copy the save-file somewhere that doesn't get deleted. So if the job stops you don't lose too much compute. Maybe lose 30 minutes or less. I meant I don't care in the sense...

If you mean ballpark $0.26*60 = $15.60 for 1 LL test, that's much more reasonable and I'd be willing to pay that. When I started this I figured I'd be willing to pay up to twice what it costs me to...
