I built new series using IPP4.1 and new Intel C++ compiler 9.0. Due to small source changes and version up of the compiler, it's slightly faster than r7 on my P4 Northwood and Prescott. app_info.xml and a client are included in each zip.

YAOSCW-P-r8.1.zip

YAOSCW-N-r8.1.zip

YAOSCW-B-r8.1.zip

YAOSCW-W-r8.1.zip

YAOSCW-K-r8.1.zip

YAOSCW-0-r8.1.zip

and the source is

YAOSCW-r8.1-src.zip

The relevent part of the file name are the P, N, B, W, K, and 0 letters.

YAOSCW-P-r8.1.zip - QxP = P4 SSE3
YAOSCW-N-r8.1.zip - QxN = P4 SSE2 only
YAOSCW-B-r8.1.zip - QxB = Pentium M SSE2
YAOSCW-W-r8.1.zip - QxW = P4 SSE2 AMD64
YAOSCW-K-r8.1.zip - QxK = P3 SSE AMD-XP
YAOSCW-0-r8.1.zip - No Option = P2 MMX

Hope that helps.

I'm trying the K version now on an AMD Duron (morgan core) with SSE. It's running fine.

I'm giving the P-version a try on my p4-prescott. Seems to be running fine. Thanks for another speedup. :)

Greetings,

[edit:] Of course also mirrored here. :)

The v7 -B version was working wonderfully on my 1.8 Pentium M (Dothan).
I've updated to the new r8.1 and am crunching away now.

Thanks again, Tetsuji!!

One of my XPs improved in FP speed, seven decreased slightly. All improved in Integer speed.

My A64 remained basically the same on both.

Thanks.

thanks to Tetsuji Maverick Rai

my P4 3.2 at 2.0 2 2 5 Twinmos Syster, and an I875 Mobo

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=56765&offset=20

and my Athlon64 3.200+ on an S754 Mobo with the good Twinmos BH5 Chips also running at 2.0 2 2 5

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=318394

that means

my P4 do 2 WUs at 1:45, and my Athlon64 about 1:12 :)

This was a change to the SETI application, not the BOINC core client. There would have been no changes to your benchmark scores, just to your SETI@home processing times! Take a look and see if those systems crunch a WU any faster with the new YAOSCW r8.1 application running.

I was not clear enough in my message.

The lower benchmarks were a result of implementing the "optimized" 4.45.

I am also running the "optimized" SETI client. I will have to review the processing times when several WUs have been processed.

Thanks.

Then why did you not post that in the thread about the optimized 4.45?

The K version is good on my Duron (Morgan core) and a couple results have now validated. Slight increase in speed, I've not run a benchmark so I can't say exactly how much.

I will migrate the rest over this weekend :)

Good work Mav,

Ned

According to the horse's mouth, AMD supports SSE3 instructions on...:

Athlon 64
Athlon 64 X2
Opteron

And Athlon 64 FX has SSE2 support.

I didn't check any others, so I don't know if there are more.

No, the FX series only support SSE2 so far it seems. (see below)

That's what happens when I post without having any sleep. ;) I totally missed that part about the FX's.

SSE3 was added to the latest core versions for Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX and Opteron. Like Intel, it's hard to know what your CPU really supports, since they've changed featuresets within CPU classifications. At tool like CPU-Z is great for checking the details.

Here's an FX-55 with SSE3 support, San Deigo core here.

Just a heads up - for my amd64 linux client, adding SSE3 support for the latest Athlon64 Venice cores (that support it) made no difference over the SSE2 enabled version. I believe Metod and Maverick have seen the same thing on their Linux Intel P4 clients. So I wouldn't be surprised if the same were true for Windows clients. Don't expect a huge improvement (or any for that matter) from an SSE3 enabled client (over SSE2) just because your CPU supports it.
