HP z420 - £60
Dell memory 64GB - reused but ~ 1$ per GB
SSD 1TB - reused but ~ £100
GTX 1060 6GB - second hand £ 70
c6 plot time
Total plot creation time was 688.55 sec (11.4758 min)
and the vital plot command :
./cuda_plot_k32 -m 8 -S 3 -C 6 -n 1 -t /nvme/chia/ -2 /nvme/chia/ -3 /nvme/chia/ …
@madMAx43v3r why is -m 8 so much faster than not setting it?
Works with up to -n 20 , more than that and uses all memory and crashes
Do you use Windows or linux?
Ubuntu linux on an old 1tb hdd
you mean upper case
-M 8 ? it’s just a memory management issue in the kernel, it depends how much free RAM you have.
Budget plotter update
I threw out the 64 GB ram and replaced it with 8 x 16 GB at £50
HP Z420 Quad core Xeon - £60
8 x 16 GB server memory - £50
GTX 1060 6GB - £70
C6 plot time just under 9 minutes
P.S. my joke about -m 8’s rates fell completely flat
