I have a C2D @ 3.4 and a G92 GPU. What is the recommended client to use?

Depends on which revision C2D, and you didn't state if its a 64bit or 32bit OS. The Lunatics SSSE3 MB, SSE3 AP and Raistmer CUDA apps are probably what you'd want to use.

Didn't know it mattered.:P

e6750 @ 3.4
So it's a fairly powerful C2D as far as features and performance go. Better than all the budget chips.

Is Astropulse more useful to the project, or does it just give more points?

OK, that C2D has support for up to SSSE3 (notice the 3 S's which is different from the SSE3 with 2 S's, but your chip supports both).

You can download the Unified Installer via the link in my signature ("BOINC & SETI Repository"); make sure you get the 64bit version. The installer will allow you to choose which version to install and do all the hard work for you. Simply reboot afterward and it should work. Look for a message in your Messages tab that reads "app_info.xml file found, using anonymous platform".


AstroPulse helps SETI too. SETI@Home Enhanced MultiBeam looks for narrowband signals while AstroPulse looks for broadband signals. AP is much larger, therefore the pay is commensurate with the time spent processing it.

BTW... Is it possible to run astropulse in GPU (faster in my case) ?

Thx!
