A36 running on a Barton 3000+

A36 running on a Barton 3000+ (Boinc 4.32)
Absolutely amazing :
wu 5565823 : 7,039.09 sec
wu 5570033 : 2,100.00 sec

I think that time is 50 % percent less than before.

Mine is also 50% quicker than it used to be. I love it

Can't thank you enough Akosf.

Can't thank you enough Akosf. Using standard app time was 4hrs 20min on my xp2500+ @ 2.1 Ghz. Now using for two days your A36 and times dropped to 1hr 45min. THat makes it almost 2.5 times faster, amazing! And the short wu only take 30min.

The really short WUs will be faster still. I went from ~60m eta on some using the old app, to 11-12m using A36, on my 2.4gig A64x2.

Hmmm. Curious as to why your 'short' WUs are taking so 'long'. My XP 1600 is cranking them out at 21-25 min. each.

OTOH, maybe your 'short' WUs are longer than mine.

They probably are longer. My

They probably are longer. My machines about the same speed as his, and I've got a clutch with 25-30m etas about 2.5days down the queue.

Ixx: Pentium Pro compatible (but it uses fsincos instruction instead of taylor-series, because the fpu of netburst based processors not so strong)

Sorry, but having little experience with recent* computers other than Macs I find all the different kinds of processors out there very confusing. Can anyone tell me with which of the above an AMD "Athlon XP 2000+" and an Intel "x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9" would be considered compatible—or point me to a good reference?

(* Meaning less than a couple of decades old.)

netburst is p4. and would

netburst is p4. and would use A37.

I think pentium-M is based on p3 and would use A36. As would athlons.

The 387 client is only needed for P1s and K6s. Possibly the very lower power/performance cpu that from Cyrex currently owned by Via(??) might be equally neutered.

387 -> 386, Family 4

387 -> 386, Family 4 (486,5x86,MediaGX), Family 5 (Pentium,PentiumMMX,K5,K6(all),6x86,MediaGX-MMX) and some others oldies.

A36 -> Family 6 (AMD K7 core processors,PentiumPro,PentiumII,PentiumIII,6x86MX,M2), Family 7 (Itanium), Family 15 (Athlon64,Pentium4 and so...)

I don't have enough info about the newer Cyrix-VIA processors, probably the 0.25u and 0.35u size processors are not compatible with Pentium Pro.

For those who don't know which family their CPU belongs to, grab a copy of CPU-Z. It will tell you.
