I see these new applications are available for Linux, Windows and Mac.

I have several of the 0.03 running under Windows.  Should I abort them and get the new ones?

Nice catch.  Don't know if

Nice catch.  Don't know if they released them yet but listed them on the application page.

OK, let me know how they

OK, let me know how they run.  I was really looking for any new GPU betas, and ran across them.  But I will try them if they look good.

The runtime is ~20% faster on

The runtime is faster on my Linux host.

My first WU - https://einsteinathome.org/de/task/844084057 - is not yet valid: Checked, but no consensus yet.

Yes, just a little bit. :-).  The crunch time for this new CPU app seems to have about halved (24k -> 12k).Surprised

Unfortunately, you now have 3 in the 'no consensus' condition so that seems to suggest that the new version is getting different answers to what the previous version was giving :-(.  Hopefully this might be something simple that is easily fixed.  That sort of improvement in crunch time would be very nice to have.

I imagine this is a bit of a worry since the GPU version seemed to be validating so well against the 0.03 app.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

Metoo, I have now 5 'inconclusives ' .... AMD GPU's against AMD Ryzen CPU v0.03 Cool

Finally got them up and

Finally got them up and running. Still have a few 0.03 on the CPUs but now got the 0.04 running.  After an hour, they appear to be twice as fast as V0.03  Looking directly at 2 work units that started at the same time.  V 0.03 is at 14.2% after 1 hour, V0.04 is at 28.7%   Will have to wait and see what the final time is and if/when it validates. Got 3 more in progress behind the first V0.04

 

Edit..

So the first pair have finished.  13,900 sec vs 23,000-24,000 sec for V0.03

Now lets see if they validate.

Now there's v0.05 already. Lovely.

Yes, I have one.  It may be even a little faster than 0.04, but at only 10% done I can't really say yet.

ADD: When I was running 0.04 on all 8 cores of my i7-3770 (Ubuntu 16.04), the time was about 7 hours 5 minutes.

Now, with a single 0.05 on one core and various other projects on the other cores, the time is 5 hours 17 minutes after 25% complete.  So 0.05 is faster, but the loading on the other cores is probably lighter, so I don't think it is quite as fast as those numbers indicate.  I will have to get it running on all 8 cores for a better check.

A validated 0.05 against a

A validated 0.05 against a 0.03, both windows, here:

https://einsteinathome.org/workunit/397827727

Speed seems the same between 0.04 and 0.05 about 10k seconds, versus previous speeds of 16k seconds.

Having run through a full set

Having run through a full set of the 0.05 work units with all 8 cores fully loaded on an i7-3770 (Ubuntu 16.04), the times are 6 hours 26 minutes for the 443.5 Hz work units.  That is approximately the same as 0.04.

On a Ryzen 2700 (Ubuntu 18.04) running work units on 15 cores, and the other core supporting a GTX 1070 on Folding, the times are 6 hours 12 minutes on the 221.25 Hz work units.
