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...)

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

I ran the cpu-z program but it says family F, though the model is 4. It is a p4(ht) 630, 3.0G prescott, sse3 (em64t). I've been using the A36, that is correct i hope? Thank you very much akosf for the optimization, it has helped this computer out immensely. :)

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.


The ones that I was getting at the time of the switch and crunched with std app took ~75 min. Then the others done with A36 finished in 32 min. That is still the same rate of increase I saw with the longer wu's.

Umm, *cough* My processor

Umm, *cough* My processor knowledge isn't "top of the pops" exactly. It seems that the A36 best for the Pentium M 745, is that correct?

Pentium M -> Family 15 -> A36 will be good.

A36 works well on old Celeron

A36 works well on old Celeron 1.1GHz, cut times of units that used to take 34+ksecs to under 15ksecs.

So akosf, any chance of

So akosf, any chance of making an optimized Linux client? If you need access to a Linux machine, I can give it to you.

such things just should not be writ so please destroy this if you wish to live 'tis better in ignorance to dwell than to go screaming into the abyss worse than hell

Well, I'm to be accustomed to windows, but if somebody give me a linux executable code than I can do a try to modify it by a hexadecimal editor.

Since installing A36 my times

Since installing A36 my times have fallen by more than half. Going from 75k+ seconds to around 28k seconds is a huge drop in compute time. Puts new life back in these old cpu's and will save me both time and money. I can do more work, in less time, on the same hardware, for the same cost!

All I can say is "THANKS"!!!!!!!!!!! Now it's time to install A36 on the last 4 'puters.
