Hi,

does this makes sense? Can somebody post some run times, if available?

Sure, this one with these times is mine. I call it Handbag 'cos it's about that big - it's an 'Eee PC' by ASUS.

Cheers, Mike.

I have made this letter longer than usual because I lack the time to make it shorter ...

here's mine running fatter WUs than Mike's is.

No offence intended,

No offence intended, DanNeely, but please don’t tell me that after 4.5 years of crunching and 700 plus posts, you haven’t learned how to create links.

Your Link

Truly, no offence was intended, but posting a url is just silly and wasteful of everyone else's time. :o)

Your prototypical Generation 'Y' slacker, and damn proud of it.

That's 27h runtime, approx 3x the runtime of an AMD X2 2GHz. I really thought they would perform better.

Problem is that the Acer One of mine will be off most of the time... Maybe I try some other shorter projects, and post runtimes.

Is the Eee PC of yours connected to other projects? Can you post links?

Hi. OK, I attached it to

Hi.

OK, I attached it to Enigma at home (link).

Lets see how it fares.

As a pleasant surprise, I noticed that the Atom comes with hyper-threading.

I am sorry about that. I was in a bitchy mood yesterday. Shouldn't have taken it out on you, tho. Sorry.

And I agree, BOINC forums could do with a little updating. :o)

Note that the Atom is hyperthreaded and the benchmark results are "per CPU". Now I don't give anything for those BOINC benchmarks, but they alone do not indicate that the Atom is inferior to the PIII@1GB. Would be interesting to compare the actual runtimes of WUs, I would not be surprised if the Atom indeed is less productive.
