basic facts

Hello List

here are my initial questions :

- how many A5.1 engines can be running at the same time on a Streaming Core with compute capability of 1.2 and 1.3 ?
- where to download the result of "occupancy test" excel file for this implementation of A5.1 ?
- how much GPU memory we need for optimal operations on GTX285+ ?
- how to transfer data from GPU memory to main memory ? cudahostalloc ?

thank you

typical configuration is 1 block per MP and 256 threads per block
resulting in 32threads per physical core.

> - where to download the result of "occupancy test" excel file for

such a file does not exist.

> - how much GPU memory we need for optimal operations on GTX285+ ?

roughly 300kbyte. (32 bytes per chains being worked on times 30 blocks times 256 threads)
+ 10-20 kbytes for the lookup tables.

Re: basic facts



thank you .
- so if my GPU says it has 240 Cores it means i can run 240*32 A5.1 generator any given moment of time ? how much does it take for one A5.1 to finish ? generally depending on my GPU configuration and its frequency how to compute my computation capability based on this code ?

Re: basic facts

you can pool 240*32 generators on the device, at any given
moment only 240 are executed. to compute the your performance
you would have to measure how long a single A5/1 computation takes
and multiply accordingly. Since you can get this number simply by
running the program, why bother?
240 cores should give you around 150million A5/1 per second at standard 600mhz.

Introduction & GPU info

Hey all,
just subscribed to this list.
I was mildly active with the THC group but after what happened to the
old tables the project simply died off.
I tried hosting a new wiki and new list but got no support from old
members... Now to THIS new project!

Graphics card:
I am browsing though the trac on the reflextor site to see what
graphics cards are more recommended...
I am not a gamer so do not have a decent graphics card...
What are the recommended models for this project? I am able to donate
some decent computing and storage for the tables
I am in the UK (london), and was browsing amazon to get a decent gpu
IS this what I assume is the most recommended one?
PALIT 896MB GeF GTX 260 SONIC 216SP PCI-E 2.0 RET
please advise :-)

Regards,
Jon

Re: Introduction & GPU info

the best card would give best performance/watt and best performance/dollar.
performance is roughly clock frequency times number of cores.
the palit gtx260 is exactly the card i would buy.
the fastest card, a gtx295, is not the cheapest solution.

Re: A51 Digest, Vol 4, Issue 3

I'm new here too. Previously I was working with the Nokia 3390. What
happened to the old tables? I was surprised to see the THC wiki slowly
die.

Re: A51 Digest, Vol 4, Issue 3

we don't know much about THC's tables. rumours are rumours, you have to ask them yourself.
our tech is nice too, so why not have the fun twice ;).
seriously, since THC's attack did not have the proper impact on the industry we do it again
and hope to generate this influence.

Wiki editing

Hi, where do we get a login for the trac wiki?

Re: Introduction & GPU info

Thanks for answer Sasha (and sorry for double e-mail),
There are two version which I found for this model, and memory seems
to be the only difference

one with 1792 MB
Palit Geforce GTX260 Sonic 1792MB HDMI PCI-Express

And one with 896 MB
PALIT 896MB GeF GTX 260 SONIC 216SP PCI-E 2.0 RET

Is memory (on the GPU) a factor for the A5/1 project?

Thanks
Jon
