1) Message boards : Bug tracker : GTX 1060 3GB - 2 hours and 40% (Message 1452)

Post:
I have a 6GB 1060 that i think is locking up my computer (which also has a 8GB 1070). I'd reboot and as soon as the Amicable Numbers tasks would start to run, the computer would (hard) freeze, and I'd be forced to reboot. Running GPUGrid just fine now. Is 6GB getting to be too small for this search space?

OK. I aborted both. The longest estimate WU had climbed to over 206 days. The other had decreased to 60+ days, but was due in 4, so...

I've got 2 tasks running - one estimates it'll take 64+ days, the other estimates 182+ days. Based on how long they've been running, I don't think the estimates are too far off. Are these "bad" WUs? (BTW, they are both allocated 2 CPUs)

For some reason, BOINC isn't registering my app_config file for Amicable Numbers project. File is located in the appropriate projects directory (D:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\sech.me_boinc_Amicable), named app_config.xml, contents are:

Anyone see what I've obviously overlooked?

Well, new driver seems to have fixed the issue. Weird (to me, at least).

Well crap! I have a Radeon Pro WX5100 that i was using for this project, but in the last couple of days a WU gets to ~24% and just hangs. Seems to still work at Einstein and Albert and Prime Grid, so i'm wondering if anyone has noticed an issue with WUs here on AMD cards or do i really have a card issue.

(and i'm sooo close to the next Amicable Pairs badge level!)

I, for one, am still crunching the old 2^64 app. I have a box that gets both versions for the CPU (2X12 cores, 48 threads). Now, I'm thinking about using my GPU to crunch these, too! :)

Oh! I saw a recheck application and the regularly named app and thought we'd started on the new batch. My bad :)

So, the new search has started but I have yet to find an ANP. Are these going to take more effort to find?

Post:
Guess I'll join some of the other badge hunters here in saying: I think the current levels make these badges a little more special than, say PrimeGrid. With regards to a comment suggesting white as a color for a more entry level badge, I was thinking that would be used for "diamond" if indeed more badge levels are added. Maybe a "hollow" star for more entry level badges. Just a thought :)

Stalled, too. But I knew this was coming. I'm wondering when we might expect the credit badges to start showing up?
