magic_sam Posted January 23, 2022 Share Posted January 23, 2022 Dear all, As said elsewhere, I'm interested in distributed scientific computing, namely BOINC, and more specifically the Einstein@Home project: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/ https://einsteinathome.org/fr/home ARM platforms seem to be a good choice for that purpose IMHO. Even though they lack the raw power of x86_64, at least they don't use a lot of energy and don't need active cooling most of the time (I can't stand the noise of a fan ). At the moment I'm running BOINC on two ARM nodes: a Raspberry PI 3 (Raspbian) and a NanoPi M1 (Armbian). Both are quite dated now and don't allow me to contribute much to this project. In your opinion, what would be the most powerful SBC running Armbian at the moment ? I've read some nice reviews about Rockchip CPU, are they worth it ? Since GPU jobs are optimized for Nvidia and AMD (OpenCL Full Profile), I'll only be able to run code on the CPU at first. Best regards, Magic Sam 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
