We're currently processing PS1 only images of galaxies in NED with RA = 10-20 deg, DEC = -30-80 deg, and NED diameter of 1-3 arcmin.

I've just queued another 705 PS1 only images of galaxies in NED with RA = 20-30 deg, DEC = -30-80 deg, and NED diameter of 1-3 arcmin.

You folks are currently processing just over 100 galaxies a day. At this rate we'll finish the survey in 2-3 years.

Imagine how fast things will go when GPU computing is brought in.
You'll need to find more images to process, and quickly.

Our prototype GPU code is about 5 times faster at the moment.

the "5x" on which pair of CPU vs GPU is calculated ?

Hello,

GPU application soon? ??
For Nvidia and AMD/ATI ??

it's very good :-)

OpenCL so it 'should' run on both

Lately I've noticed my world position by RAC dropping so it would seem that some new users have joined or some people have come back and brought some decent cpu power with them...

So even without GPU's it looks like our processing power is on the rise. Lets hope more images will be taken over the next few years that it'll take us to crunch them!

Indeed it is on the rise, Towards the bottom of this page (http://production-test.theskynet.org/) you can see a graph of total TFLOPS for the project. :)

Are we likely to see the GPU code released this year or is 2014 more likely ?

If you find your RAC ranking falling down, it is beacuse the Team 'l'Alliance Francophone '= The French speaking Alliance has a RAID on this project at the moment which has started last Friday and many French speaking crunchers have their RAC increasing a lot since they stopped all the other projects they were working on. Actually, most of them are crunching only on the TheSkynetPOGS project.
Thanks to Kevin for adding new galaxies images which provide us for many work up to the end of our RAID at the end of next week.
