what do u mean when you refer

what do u mean when you refer to S40 i run an amd fx55 processor with 4 gig ram and 5.09 gig virtual ram... and hard drives (4 of them) - a very fast games machine...........

what benefits would i get from a s40 (whatever it is)????

It's the Hotted up version of the Albert client used in Einstein. Runs good, takes no short cuts, does all the same calculations, produces all the same results and is four times faster than the old standard Albert. Bruce, the Project scientist has included many of the improvements in to the latest release. But it appears the machine code (or hex?) runs a little better on most boxes.

Bruce and Akosf are working on the fine tuning now. It's been in all the best threads ;-)

There is a sticky thread devoted to release announcements for akosf's speed-up science applications.
Optimized executables announcement thread

As Mike mentioned, there have been individual threads discussing user experience with each of these as they came out.

As a round number, people are seeing Einstein@Home results complete about four times faster with the most recent akosf science applications as compared to standard one from the project.

My first result with S40.03 finished successfully, but was not granted credit - not sure why/how this happened. Any ideas?

EDIT: That is, if my result was invalid, then why wasn't the WU sent out to another host (to get the third valid result)?

Nothing is wrong. There were three successful results. The validator compared them, found that two were valid and one was invalid. End of story.

Completely large opera...(a german joke)

Sorry, Mr. Allen, but not very 'valid' answer.

Regards.

So is it the general

So is it the general consensus that intel/Windows boxes running S39L should be upgraded to S40.03.

I got a couple of of 0

I got a couple of of 0 credits results with S40.03 with an XP 2600+. I'm switching back to S40 and hope this will be better. :(

After I switched back, the next result got credits.
So far all my results with S40.03 out of the series z1_1373.5 are thrown away by the scheduler.
The new result is also out of z1_1373.5, so there seems to be a difference in accuracy between S40 and S40.03.

S40.03 is 5%-6% faster that D40 on my AMD 3500+. And the result validated! :)

You better hold your smiley. ;)
Once you might get WUs of a different frequency and then the scheduler will throw away your results.
My X2 did't have a problem so far, but they may come and the XP also crunched very well, until z1_1373.5 showed up.

Let's see what akos is gonna answer.

Micha,

Thanks for the heads up! I will keep a sharper eye on the results, and if they start to not validate I will switch back to D40 (which worked very well).
