Am I right that the current Astropulse and Seti@home Enhanced clients are still using straight x86 instructions? I just found out about "Win64 Lunatics' Unified Installer v0.37" and now at first glance, seems as though my work units are finishing in less than 2 hours vs usually 4 or more with the default client that BOINC downloads.Using the SSE 4.1 client.
Why can't BOINC use the information it gathers about your CPU (SSE instruction sets) and download the most optimized client for your machine?
Imagine all the more work everyone could do with less electricity.
