Default Weekend GT730 Project

I have successfully run mfaktc and cudalucas on my first gpu, a GT730. For GIMPS, I have found a few factors AND completed a LL-DC. Now, I would like to complete the following four tasks:

1. Get my gpu listed on mersenne.ca gpu benchmarks page
2. Tune mfaktc for optimal performance
3. Tune cudalucas for optimal performance
4. Answer the TF vs. LL-DC question for this gpu

Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Is this the right information for a CUDALucas benchmark?

Default mfaktc timing

I hope this works for the mfaktc benchmarks:

Quote:
GPU brand: NVIDIA
GPU model: GT 730 (GDDR5)
Stock core clock: 901 MHz
Actual core clock: 901 MHz
Assignment: Factor=134473637,71,72
Running Time: 1h 28m 56.640s
SievePrimes: 25000
GPU usage (avg): 99%
mfaktc version: mfaktc v0.21 (64bit built)

Because it's fun? The distributed effort all adds up.

I have a 30 GHz-d/d card that has put in over 20 THz-d.

I bought the GT 730 for a few reasons:

1. It's one of the more powerful fanless gpu available on the market

2. It only burns a few watts (less than 15W with 1 instance of mfaktc at 99% GPU utilization)

3. It's absent from the mersenne.ca benchmarks; if there are other folks interested in quiet, energy-efficient systems that want to contribute to the project, they too might wonder about the GT 730. By adding this data point, we might help them make a better purchase.

If you're consuming over 110W for your GPU on this run, why are *you* bothering? 8x the speed for 8x the power is available for anyone from Amazon instances. If the GT730 produces similar production per watt-hour as your GPU, it is precisely as useful to the global effort, merely at a smaller (slower?) scale.

Fiddling with GPUSieveProcessSize in mfaktc.ini:

value : GhzD/D
32 : 34.8
24 : 57.6
16 : 57.6
8 : 58.5

Is this expected behavior?

Yes. The best number will depend on your card.

I think I've settled on:

GPUSievePrimes=87400
GPUSieveSize=128
GPUSieveProcessSize=8

The GhzD/D increased to about 58.6 from 57.6 with the defaults.

Should I try changing any of the other options in the mfaktc.ini file?
