i have a beast computer and it still srashes. and is the default for the full spike LFE?
This is likely due to an issue with the RNApuzzler low-overlap layout we’ve identified. Go to another puzzle to make sure you have it turned off, then try loading it again. Let me know if that helps.
how do i see that RNApuzzler low-overlap layout you’ve identified
You can toggle it on/off with the
Jnicol fixed the issue! thanks.
Is there a recommendation for minimum spec’s that a computer must have to do the Sandbox DEG 2 Full Spike Protein puzzle in Round 5?
Memory, I tried 4 to 32MB. Same problems with either one.
Browser, both Chrome & Safair use 101% cpu time rendering. Both report the website is using too much resources without saying what the resources are.
Is there a minimum graphics requirement? Have I something wrong in a browser setting?
I have Mac computers. I see from the above entries that the Mac laptops have problems also and I imagine they have more memory than I do.
I don’t want to go out and purchase something that won’t do a proper job.
Looking for any help I can get to sort this out.
Thanks in advance.
What you’re talking about is actually unrelated - and in fact doesn’t have to do with graphics at all. This is purely due to folding engine computations. The limitation CPU speed. My guess is either:
- You’re not using LinearFold(E)
- You’re not actually using the sandbox puzzle as you said
For either of those situations - I haven’t done any benchmarking, but no matter how good your computer is it’ll take a while. I’ve discussed some ideas with Andy on how to at least prevent the computations from preventing the page from freezing, though we probably won’t be able to do that for a while - and it won’t speed it up. A faster processor can improve load times, but it will still take many minutes for the computations to happen.
I’m on puzzle 10219657 in Round 5 Sandbox Degscore.
I’ve tried LinearFold(E) and Eternaold with the same results.
Mutation of one base can be 2 minutes sometimes and 12 minutes other times.
If it was always 2 minutes between mutations, I could live with it. 12 not so much.
My 13-inch 2017 MacBook Air (Costco) opens that puzzle in 60 seconds. When I make a mutation, the folding only takes 3 seconds. I leave the puzzle in LinearFoldE or LinearFoldV. The specs are 2.2 GHz dual-core Intel core i7, 8 GB RAM, and 122 GB storage. The primary reason I bought the 2017 version instead of the newer model is I need the USB slot for connecting an audio interface to run MainStage.
Do Soon said OpenVaccine Round 6 is going to be the NanoLuciferase and a portion of the spike, not the full spike. So your current laptop may be fine.
That is extremely weird. With LinearFoldE mutation is only taking a couple seconds for me in the sandbox. Eternafold will by definition take significantly longer.
Could you provide me with information on your processor (namely, speed and/or specific model number, eg I have an i7-8750H which runs from 2.20 - 4.10 GHz) and/or the specific model of computer you’re running?
I have an i5 dual core 1.4Ghz processor. 4GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM.It’s a mac mini.
I’m in the puzzle now and mutations are about 10 seconds. I had closed everything out and started over.
I am going very slow changing explosion factor, dragging the molecule around, pausing after a mutation change. This is bearable right now. This morning was bad. Like I said, 8 to 12 minutes waiting for a mutation. Browser isn’t complaining at all right now.
