would validation be improved by validating a fast computer with another fast computer. If my work is done in 6 hours but validated with a computer that takes 6 days then my work and presumably the whole project will procede a the pace of the slowest computers ??

faster validation

I guess that validation can't be faster. It just need 3 results to be send back to server.
However some time ago I was thinking if scheduler could send same workunit only to machines with similar speed, or even better with similar unit workaround time(i mean average time between downloading and returning unit).
