Extreme coolness.

Some of us a little afraid of running "shutdown -r now". Sometimes it doesn't go so well....

No. It is a big thrill. I was blown away watching my first GPU (GTX 460) rip through assignments with one of the earliest versions of mfaktc. Finding the first factor was another WOOHOO kind of moment.

GPUs are such a huge factor in parallel processing such that I always have to remind me of the consequences. Simple TF is really nice parallilazable, but some other things are not that easy to do, e. g. LL and all other FFT things.

The first TF I did was on a GeForce 210, about four years ago. At only 4.8 GHz-d/day, it wasn't worth it.

I'm always amused by people who enter conversations like this.

Have you ever run a GPU doing TF?

Yes! On different GPUs, on mfaktc I tried 1080Ti, in mfakto I tried R9 290 and AMD 5770.

It should be noted that the "new" way to shutdown/reboot your computer is:
Code:
systemctl reboot
or
Code:
 systemctl poweroff
.

I think the "shutdown -r now" still works, for now, but in the new "systemd" world these are the new commands.

Or, just pulling the power cord out of the machine also usually works....

What kind of results? Obviously there are no factors of M50; what exactly do you search for?

It appears to be working but I don't know if it is running efficiently. My GPU is at 99% and it appears I'm getting approx 220Ghz-d/day. Does that sound about right for a GeForce GTX 950?
