A new Einstein@home ABP1 App for Linux is available for Beta Test at Beta Test Page.

This is a big package to download (26MB), as it contains the 1.09 ABP1 applicatin as well as the current 1.06 S5R5.

The new ABP1 App should mainly benefit from using SSE in the FFTw (and some other parts). I'd be curious if there are still machines out there without SSE and how they'd react on this App (the FFTW doku is somewhat ambiguous at that point).

app_info.xml does contain entries for ABP1 1.07 and 1.09 and S5R5 1.06, tasks assigned to older apps will error out.

Please test and report.

Graphics is no longer running on my SuSE Linux 10.3, BOINC 6.6.29. It used to run on ABP1 1.06.

I finished 4 units this

I finished 4 units this night, all under 17103 seconds on a Q9550 default clock 2.83GHz, Ubuntu 9.04. Two of them already validated.

Unfortunatelly I don't have comparison units for that hosts :-/
I'll compute some over the day.

System ( ignore the aborts, I

System ( ignore the aborts, I did so to load this Beta ) :
Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.2 GHz + 2G RAM
ATI Radeon HD3850 on AGP ( X11 v4 )
Suse Linux v11.0
Boinc v6.4.4
wxWidgets v2.8.7

The graphics is good. Nice Aricebo Power Spectrum on the upper right, pretty flat looking and slightly rippling so far. Lower right shows search info : RA, DEC, DM, radius, period, phase. Lower left you've slid in the WU progress ( expects about 02:40 to complete ) with user info. Upper left Einstein logo and '09 International Year of Astronomy. Interferometers ( all 4 ) marked out on the sky though in duller color ( relating the contrast to the orange search icon/crosshair ) than my standard Windows starsphere. Drag/scroll & zoom as expected. Good job! :-)

I'll get back with the WU outcomes.

Cheers, Mike.

With the old app the times are around 18500 seconds, so I'm saving ca. 1400 second. Thats around 8% improvement.

Both are pretty good when compared to this times under Windows (same CPU):

Wow, what a massive jump for you!
Is the E7200 running at standard frequency?

In the package the x-flag for the graphics app is not set. Change it and you will see the graphics.

I see a remarkable boost on all systems. Will post values when available.
