Primegrid - Oktoberfest Challenge!


The sixth Challenge of the 2019 Challenge series is a 5 day challenge to celebrate Oktoberfest. The challenge will be running on the AP27 Search.

How to Participate?

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the AP 27 (AP27) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin 21st September 2019 11:00 UTC and end 26th September 2019 11:00 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux , Windows and MacIntel CPUs and GPUs. CPU apps are only available for 64 bit CPUs. High end Nvidia GPUs will have a very large advantage.

Tasks will take ~29 hours on average for CPUs and ~75 minutes on average for GPUs. If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. If you haven't run the AP app before, we strongly suggest running it before the challenge while you are monitoring the temperatures. You don't want to turn your machine into a meteor!





Update on standing

You can run CPU and GPU and both get the same credit.  The CPU tasks runs for about 23 - 24 hours and the GPU on my 1080Ti runs about 14 minutes and they both get 4043.00 credits.  CPU = 169 credits per hour.  GPU = 17,327.14 credits per hour.  I am only running my GPU's on this challenge.

 We have started the Challenge in 9[sup]th[/sup] place which is really good.  I think we will gain some positions if we use our GPU's.
