Very nice, my AMD Athlon X2 BE-2350 went from 11438s (2.4V) to 10362s (V8 SSE3) for a 63.98Cr WU.
I guess that's as fast as it gets...

Now we only need the Linux port :)


Linux Port ? I don't know but i made one on the fly...
AK V8 SSE3 on linux*
* running in vmware
first result should be done in about 20 mins or so...

How quick did the WU crunch, Crunch3r? As in how much time did the WU take to be crunched?

Cool!
I struggled for days trying to get it to compile statically with Intel's latest IDE/IPP.

Well done!

why ? except for some typos like #include "analysefuncs.h" where it should have been "analyseFuncs.h" and some other stuff that i ripped off like the ipp_static_test.h" or so... all seems to be fine...

(of course the cpuid stuff is gone as well, i made a library out of the 2.2b/2.4 cpuid function and linked that in ...

Anyhow, jason got the binary and some of you folks at lunatics that run linux natively( not in vmware) should do some tests if it's as fast as the windows binary...

I'm still unable to connect to lunatics.kwsn.net ... otherwise i would have posted there myself :(

Let's see that's around:

10.04 minutes for the 20.05
40.54 minutes for the 54.24
54.15 minutes for the 63.98

Not bad, Doesn't sound too bad at all.

i have no clue if that's good or not...

i'm running that test app in vmware using 2 cpus of my V8 rig which is a dual quad core xeon 5365 @ 3 ghz
(on the windows part it's cruching 6 riesel sieve wus at once)

I've posted in Lunatics development areas for anyone running Linux NATIVE to test.

As it happens my Ubuntu VM is running stock at the moment, took me a a while to figure that out, now I need to figure out how to install opt app in Linux :S

Wooaahhh!....CRASH!!! (as I fall out of chair) : 0
So, you're running 2 instances w/ RS on the other 6?
Those times are freakishly fast compared to times on: [#10 Bad to the Bone]
54.24
63.98

The difference is so massive there's got to be another factor in this.
Reported time for VLAR is even @25% quicker than #1 MAC? [63.98]
Running in VMware quicker than running native? (how does this make sense?)

Ideas to explain these times???

actually from what i've seen in the past, running in vmware is slower than running it natively.

Very nice & I don't just mean the set-up ; >)

Well, that is what one should expect so at least my sanity is still intact :P
Doesn't the speed surprise you?
Will it do that running the aps on all 8 cores? (still scratching head...)

no... cuz i don't have a reference to windows... i haven't been running sah for months because the credit is poor.

I don't know... i could reboot the machine an try running the app on fedora core 8 (x64) to see if it behaves the same way there while running 8 instances of sah..


EDIT
of course it had to happen ... first wu got validated and i got pared up with a host running boinc 4.45 ... instead og getting 20 credits i got 8 :(

Your 54.36=2415 secs is substantially quicker than Francois running JDWale ap + Vista on this WU: 54.33=3452 secs
(best compo I could find w/ his rig)

....except he is running a Hapertown X9775 3.2GHz OC'd to 4.0Ghz.

The JDWhale ap is within a few % of the new release ap for -doze.
F' is running 1Ghz more clock and 50% more cache of the next-gen cpu.

The linux port on your rig is somehow still spanking it....ALOT.

No doubt. But the compare is not complete without running 8 cores loaded native Linux. You might check out UL1's X5482 rig, though still slower on a per/core basis the clock is much closer to Crunch3rs rig.

Dang...and I just blew my Linux box away and reinstalled XP last night...I would have been able to test a Q6600@2.997gHz (best OC for that board as of now) running 4 SETI...

Well, I did get a Q9300 this afternoon. Might have to try it at stock speed before giving it over to XP.
