Thank you very much!

3 Win-Hosts, Athlon T-Bird, Athlon XP 2400+ and Athlon 64 X2 4400+ all need less than half of the time for a wu now, as before.

All results are valid so far.

CPU-temperature seems to be 1 to 2 °C lower too.

I hardly dare to ask if it would be much work to compile albert II as a linux-app?

cu,
Michael

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.

I can only agree.
Only needed 40.6% of the time on a sempron3000.

Then you're really interested in a subject, there is no way to avoid it. You have to read the Manual.

Now I know what this is, a little advice I assume I just put the file in the Einstein folder and just rename the old EXE in there similar to when doing it for SETI??

1. Download file.
2. Unzip file
3. Move the file to the C:/Program Files/BOINC/projects/einstein.phys.uwm.edu/ directory
4. Restart boinc

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

I would like to know how Dr.

I would like to know how Dr. Bruce feels about the optimized app before installing. I know it is validating and things, but getting a better official word makes me feel better.

So, is it good for us to use?

According to general purpose

According to general purpose computation on gpus the following page might be interesting:

@akos
How did you optimize the application without having the source code present? Do you use some tools analysing the app while calculating?

btw: Well done! :-D

I would like to know, too, although I suspect an "official" endorsement by a project official may not be immediately possible. If for no other reason, there may be some legal agreements that may need to be put into place before an application "from the wild" can be accepted by this very large and publically (governmentally) funded project.

But anyway, we hope Bruce responds in some manner as this software will most likely continue to spread by "unofficial" word of mouth. :)
