Yeah, no...

Please stick with LL-TF'ing if you're doing it.

We might need a brief burst of DC-TFing in a specific range in a few days (or a few weeks), but right now we're looking pretty good.

I see that I did not read some earlier posts very carefully. I will revert to my LLTF habits (after completing the DCTFs in queue.)

We're currently balancing on a tight-rope, both in DCTF and LLTF. Just the way we like it -- "Just In Time".

With the current discussions on changing the assignment rules we might need a serious (but brief) amount of DCTF firepower in a range to be determined soon....

Just so you all know, I've had two "takers" of my GPU TF'ing for CPU work trading offer. owftheevil who brought a GPU over from P-1'ing (but declined reciprocation), and LaurV who brought two G580s over from DC'ing (he accepted the trade, of course ). LaurV and I have worked out that for DC'ing one G580 DCing is approximately equivalent to one half (one CPU) of a R720. I still have ten more CPUs to trade, if anyone is using their GPU to DC or LL (or P-1) and are interested...? Again, the CPU assignments are in your name, and you get to keep the credit for both the CPU and GPU work. PM me if you'd like to "play"....

Ask chalsall about the ratio. He has like 400 GHz/day or more in cpu power.

Make up, and surpass!

Edit: Perhaps ironically, while I run GPU72, I don't actually have much GPU fire-power myself. My "real" work generally involves rack-mounted servers (some of which are "out-sourced" and which I never actually physically ever touch) which can't host consumer GPUs because of the venting direction.
