1) Message boards : Number crunching : The Winter Solstice Challenge (Message 29558)
Posted 3569 days ago by Profile JOHNO [SETI.USA]Project donor
I wish everyone the best of luck on this PrimeGrid Winter challenge. It looks to be shaping up as a tight team race. This should prove to be an interesting battle of the GPU’s. Although I don’t game, I am hoping that the 3.2 billion transistors on my EVGA GTX 470 will help my team SETI.USA stay competitive in the running of this Solstice challenge.

I have been running my card flat out 24x7 on the PPS Sieve since the Leonids Challenge in November. Win or lose we can all take comfort that our GPU's are helping to heat our homes for the Northern Hemisphere participants.

If you have been wondering about the GTX 470’s ability to produce credit, while keeping your toes toasty this December -
I have an i7 875K with an EVGA GTX 470 SC and have completed 3,589 PPS Sieves for 7,701,369.23 credit. I have found 341,431 factors, with an average factor per work unit of 95.1326.

My primary computer, which runs Windows 7 Pro, and is completing a PPS sieve every 7 min 38 sec @ 2,311.00 credit per unit with the most recent Proth Prime Search (Sieve) v1.37 (cuda23).

Here are my specs based on following closely the build from Maximum PC:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU K 875 @ 2.93GHz [Family 6 Model 30 Stepping 5], Memory 4094.05 MB, Coprocessors NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 (1248MB) driver: 26099.
