This week I'm getting only T4 and K80 on Pro+. I'm not sure I want to pay $50 for that. It might be because I'm running 2 instances, I will test soon if I get P100/V100 if I only run 1 instance.

As soon as I started getting K80 (after 3 1/2 weeks) on Pro+, I dropped the subscription. Not worth $50.

Don't wanna say "told you so"... hehe, since the ETH price raised, I think they are now mining with all their Voltas and Pascals.
Otoh, my three Pro-not-plus accounts (still paid till October 3rd, when the subscription will end) get either (about) 2 minutes to 6 hours per day of T4 (doing TF with Chris) or (about) 4 to 8 hours per day of half-K80 each (doing P-1, found 2 new factors in 11.3M). Life's a bitch...

I have tested using only 1 instance per account for a few days to see if I got better GPUs, if the T4s / K80s was a "punishment" for running 2 instances.
I got only T4s still the last few days even with 1 instance, but just now I got A100 on both accounts! First time I have seen A100, only seen P100 and V100 before.
A100:
355 µs/ite on 106.3M (5.5M FFT) ~ 10.5 hours for a full test
193 µs/ite on 57.8M (3M FFT) LL DC ~ 3h6min for full LL DC
Pretty sweet!

Still cannot be 100% sure if it was just a coincidence or if it was because I was only running 1 instance, have to test further.

Free? Pro? Pro+?

I have 3 free accounts; 1 session each. For the last several weeks I get 100 % K80s

Colab free, only attempting single instance per account, if/when I get a GPU it's always a K80 for weeks now.

Pro+ sorry, it said so in the quote of my own earlier post. I'm trying to figure out if Pro+ is worth it at all. If I could get 1 instance of A100 constantly I would gladly take it, but I doubt it :)

On "normal" Pro I was also getting mostly T4s and K80s (running 2 instances) before trying to switch to Pro+.

Default Number of accounts limit

Assuming 1 gmail email address per account and instance of Colab free, a recent online search indicated Google does not limit number of email addresses per person. So the practical limits on Colab free parallelism may be available personal time, organizational skills, and patience. Even when there are no GPUs to be had, CPUs can slog on in mprime, Mlucas, etc.

Well, you still need a set of alef-zero telephone numbers...

Why do you claim that? One person can have more google email accounts than phone numbers.

Not any longer.

When the whole Colab environment was new (at least, to us all), I set up four GMail accounts per NPA NXX-NXX-XXXX with no problem multiple times.

About a year ago or so this was constrained to only a single account (at least in the near temporal domain). I feel sorry for those who happen to get numbers reassigned to them from my burners...
