I must agree though, that the Einstein Linux Client performs exceptionally bad on the Athlon64, something is definitely not okay there.

It is actually the only piece of Software I've ever run myself, where an equally clocked AthlonXP CPU beats the Athlon64.

Earlier or later the Einstein@Home Crew will have to get back Coding to bring up performance to where it should be.

PS.
The Athon64 does not need any Emulation mode for 32bit, as opposed to the Itanium it has native, full-speed 32bit support.

> My Athlon 3000+ (not overclocked) on Linux takes 37k seconds per.

Please note there are 3 types of Athlon 3000+

CPU Name: Athlon 3000+
Technology: 64 bit, 64 bit, 32 bit
Core name: Clawhammer, Newcastle, Barton
L2 Cache: 1024K, 512K, 512K

Info about different AMD Procs
My guess is they would all perform differently with Einstein

You could say so indeed; I run an simple celeron D330 @ 2,6Ghz linux 2.6 kernel
Time per WU in native mode > 47K sec. with some WU's granted 0 credit

Under WINE it is reduced to about 33-35Ksec. and credited.

I have two comps running e@h.

I have two comps running e@h. both amd's. neither overclocked.

one is an older amd proccessor probably 2 years old with 128 meg of ram

the other is an 2500 XP+ barton core with 512meg of ram

both use windows xp sp2

the first runs at 42000 sec per wu
the second runs at 25000 sec per wu

both comps are using cheap 50 to 80 dollar proccessors

so if your running linux dont expect much from e@h

now cpdn on the other hand linux client screams kicks major butt on windows.
