Is an optimized client availible for the Einstein project? I saw significant reduction in times to complete a work-unit using the Seti optimized client.

Tomc,

I think what you are referring to is an optimized app, the project-specific program which does the actual crunching work. The client is the Boinc program, which does mainly the benchmarking, communication and scheduling, switching projects, etc. Einstein does not have an optimized app to speed crunchtimes, because the nature of the project requires far more precision in the calculations than does Seti, so short-cut optimizations are far more likely to return invalid results. The code for Einstein is not open-source.

also the einstein client is already heavily optimised...
