    Asteroids@Home - Credits/app_config

    I have been crunching Asteroids@Home for a few days now and I wonder if my sums are correct regarding daily RAC. My farm is 10 machines, some are 24 threads, most are 12 threads and a laptop with just 2 threads. My daily RAC is 200k. If I double my farm to 20 machines I will still be outside the top 10. Doubling it again to 40 machines will give me 800K somewhere like 7 or 8. Doubling them again to 80 machines will get me to 3rd place and finally 160 machines will get me to first place in the daily RAC race. I have never been any good at maths at school and I doubt that I have changed. One thing I am certain of, I will never have 160 machines at my disposal. Is there an app_config or app_info for this project that I am not aware of?

    Keep on crunching and have a nice day...

    There are no optimized apps for Asteroids that I'm aware of CP. The big producers do have lots of threads at their disposal and it takes several days for the daily credits to equalize as Asteroids is a quorum of 2.

    Need to run Asteroids for probably 15-20 days or so before the RAC is somewhat accurate. Once the pendings stop increasing, you'll know you're getting close to the true number. You may not be as far away as you think.

    Adding Nvidia GPUs helps too.
