I. YES - I have an ATI GPU

My AMD Phenom 9850 is running at 2.9ghz water cooled and is at an RAC of 4629 and still climbing. Core temp is at 53C.

Looks like this one won't come out any time soon...Another one bites the dust...

Crunch3r will be back tomorrow.

Well today I just got my MSI-K9A2 Platinum, Radeon HD 3870, Corsair XMS2 1066Ram, and a new Scythe heat sink. Now just need to wait till next week for the Phenom 9850's to go on sale. Can't wait to try out a true spider with overdrive.

Anyone running JDWhale app. or Jason Gee app. on the Phenom to see if AMD improved on there instruction sets for SSE3 or to test the new SSE4a? I can set mine to stock speed if anyone is interested.

I'd just like to thank all the ppl. working on this. Great job!

Your multiplier is way off it should be at 11. It looks like your only using half the speed of the CPU.

8) Message boards : Number crunching : What (yet unsupported) instructions do we need? (Message 729951)
Posted 24 Mar 2008 by seaking57
Just out of curiosity why would Intel support AMD instruction sets and have to pay them royalties for there usage? Intel has already out performed AMD with SSE3 and SSSE3 and correct me if I’m wrong but SSE4a From AMD looks like it has some instructions for the specific true quad core design of the Barcelona and Phenom. I think that would be useless on an Intel chip. As for SSE5 AMD put it on there Barcelona core but I don’t think anyone supports it in there compilers yet. Maybe someone with a better understanding of the instruction sets will jump in and say something.
9) Message boards : Number crunching : different ideas for increasing processing power in a single computer (Message 699807)
Posted 13 Jan 2008 by seaking57
Has anyone ever tried to come up with a way to use the incredible processing power held within the graphics cards in most computers to speed up the number crunching? I don't need a pretty picture on my screen if it will speed up the search. That is a lot of computing power just sitting there around the world.

You might have to do a search through the forums but there is some work being done with both NVIDIA CUDA and the AMD Firestream. The programming is vary complex and is only being toyed with by users right now. The Seti team has worked with NVIDIA in the past but I’m not sure what there official standing is right now.

I Metath is using Chrunch3r's 6.1.0 could that be causing the problem?

In the terminal window type sudo nautilus. This will open your directory with super user privileges. Then just copy and paste the files in the the folder you need them in and restart Boinc.
12) Message boards : Number crunching : Different Cache For O/S? (Message 658151)
Posted 12 Oct 2007 by seaking57
My Linux boxes are doing the same thing there only holding a cache of about 2 to 6 work units. Yet my windows boxes are holding a nice cache for a few days. I guess they'll work them selves out in time.
