2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

GPU/CPU Computing

No.65564854 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
What led to the transition from CPU-centric computing to very heavily GPU-centric starting in the 2010s? Is there a necessity for CPU computing whatsoever aside from the sheer standardized nature of CPU architectures? The advent of GPGPU computing might have one believe that the usefulness of CPUs are limited to very few tasks - and that's only due to the inability of programmers to fully utilize GPU architectures. Am I missing something? What even is the point of a CPU anymore?
