This is my first post - Just wanted to thank you all for your valuable info.
Secondly, I’m interested to see what speeds you guys are getting on a single plot to give myself a comparison to see if Ive done a good job or not.
Im running an Intel Core i5-10600K @ 4.10GHz with
Adata SX8200 Pro series 1Tb drive
Offloading to a Crucial BX500 480GB SSD
Started a plot at: 16:11
Time for phase 4 = 496.344 seconds. CPU (93.830%) Tue May 18 20:30:26 2021
I’ve never done 1x at a time but with 4x I’m right around 4.5 hours average. Threadripper 3970x, 980 Pro Temp (4) and 18GB External WD (4) for Destination. Only running 4x the system is still asleep… I can load the system about 50% before I run out of SSD, which puts me just over 80/day. Trying to tweak everything to get more though. So hard to tune these as there’re so many variables and so many hours between tests:
4.5 Ghz on all cores. Tomorow a new 18 TB disk will arrive and I will be able to write more plots simultaneously. I’m curious what my speeds will be when I will have more running parallel. On my B550 motherboard I was getting 6,5 / 7 hours per plot with 8 or 9 running at the same time.
