Akosf for King of the Einstein World!! Is there any advantage in upgrading to C37 if A36 is working well on all machines? Is it faster for instance? Very impressive work and thanks......cheers, Rog.

I tried it on one of my PC-s

I tried it on one of my PC-s with P4 and got 20% less time with C37 instead of A36.

Well done. :)

A36 working impressively well on the AMD machines, is the C37 specifically for the P4's? (Sorry, if you have posted this elsewhere, sometimes is hard to keep up with you.)

Thank you for the fantastic work you have done (are doing!).

C37 is better than A36 and 387, and it uses only 80386 compatible instructions.

/surprised :D 386 instructions...

Anyhow, on my A64 3500+ it gives 27 minutes 27 secs on the WU I crunched... Quite impressive. Now, to see how it fairs in the validator... I know, I know others have looked, but can't blame me for keeping an eye on it myself :D

>That has been my experience as well with two AMD64 X2 machines(3800 and 4200).
My older Athlon XP 3000+ seems a little faster but needs more run time to be sure one way or another....Cheers, Rog.

My first few c37 WUs are

My first few c37 WUs are running slightly longer than my a36 average, but the difference is smaller than the noise factor so it's not definative.
