Akosf, that's really, really

Akosf, that's really, really great: an speed improvement of 2.3x for my Athlon XP. The completion time is reduced from 4h to be only 1h 45min now.

I hope E@H team will release soon this new applications for all platforms, the "200 days to completion" will be hugely reduced.

But it will be necessary to increase again the maximum number of WU's per day a host can download. Faster machines will process now much more WU's per day.

Or, in the future, I suppose the WU's size should be increased, to avoid overloading the data server.

Thank you for your hard work and generousity! :)

I do feel a little strange using an unauthorized client version, but I guess the proof is in the pudding as they say, meaning that if the results are accurate, then presumably there is no downside to using the application.

RE: A36 VERY fast app!

VERY fast app! Outstanding work, akosh! WU completed in 41.5% of CPU time under official app. Now, just to wait and see if it validates, and as josep said, Bruce will have to up the daily quota again.

@ Bruce - Just a suggestion - when you multiplied the quota, it might have been a good idea to also multiply the penalty for errored results. When working with a quota of 32, putting a 1 WU penalty on a serial-error host is going to take forever to limit the damage. When the daily "q" was 8, a penalty of 1 was significant, a fast-working deterent.

Respects,

Michael

And temperature of CPU is

And temperature of CPU is less than using official albert.exe.

Thanks

I have put two of my linux machines back into wine mode running the new windows binary from Akosf, so far it appears they are also enjoying the same speed increase. I will know for sure once they are done computing.

Thanks, I'll test the App

Thanks,

I'll test the App on my test box and if it works I will turn up a few cruncher boxes using this app!!!
