Just for fun. Rules:

1) HT and Dual Core can be counted twice (for example a 3.8GHz HT system can be counted as 7.6GHz total). Dual core with HT can be counted four times (the previous example would total 15.2GHz). Dual CPU quad core can be counted eight times... etc. If HT is disabled, it cannot be counted twice.

2) Actual clock speeds only (for example an Athlon XP 2600+ actually runs at 1.9GHz).*

3) Systems must be online and currently crunching (even if you have just turned them on!).

4) Systems must be yours (may be part of a team, but not total team power).

5) Try to get it to the nearest megahertz if you can (such as 254.986GHz would be 254 Giga 986 Megahertz), or simply round to the nearest gigahertz if you have a lot of systems (such as rounding the above number to 255GHz).

6) Since this is the SETI forum, limit your total processing power to those you have running SETI (can be running other projects too, but they must be running SETI as well).


* The reason for actual clock numbers is for simplicity, as the architectural differences between an Athlon, Athlon XP or Athlon 64 processor are obviously all different (and more efficient with each generation), even when compared to Intel's chips, it's just easier to count raw processing power.


This thread is not meant to make people feel bad about how much they are contributing, but to simply to have fun and find out about how much total processing power is out there.


To start, I am running a total of 34.996GHz of power.

Interesting idea, but with the processor numbers being so weird now (newer machines, mobile processors have a lot lower G speed than the P4 speeds, etc.).

I add up to 23G.

Currently have about 37.63ghz on tap, actual cpu clock speeds as measured by cpuz.

Where does this go when a Pent M 1.86 beats a P4 3.2GHz by about 10% for crunch times. And the Core 2 Duo's do even better.

You are just playing into the marketing people's hands if you believe that bigger GHz numbers means better.

Get a life?? As the original post said....."just for fun". Certainly not indicated to be a true measure of Seti computing power, just total cpu speed on tap. The RAC would give a rough measure of the actual processing power.

I've got a lowly 5.5Ghz. But it's efficient...!!!. Hopefully going to swap out my Opty for another X2 in a couple of months.

Well, thank you for telling me to get a life. I really appreciate that. I'm certainly not playing into any marketers hands, as if you've seen any of my posts around here I fully understand that IPC is much more important than raw power.

As Msattler said, this is just for fun. To see raw GHz speed that's running. I understand that a Core 2 will beat a Pentium D at half the speed, but I just thought it'd be fun to see how many "clocked GHz" are out there, regardless of architecture.

And please, don't insult me again. If you can't have fun, don't post in my thread.

Some 30 Ghz (OverClock taking into count).
Host listed in profile.

Just replaced a P4C 2.8@3.15Ghz (Northwood)with a C2D E6600@2.4Ghz - this gives less total GigaHertz but certainly more credit per hour ;-)

My two PD950s total 6.8 GHz of crunching "power". But if they were Core 2 Duos that crunch more slowly (less than 6.8 GHz) their throughput would double.

5.32GHz with my new computer
Avarage GFlop is raising, but needs to go for alot longer to even out - but before my old computer crashed it was 2.16, and with my new computer it's currently at 2.57GFlops - that should go alot higher, especially when I get the load on the CPU by other tasks down ;)

16.99GFlops here currently, more later when the Kentsfield cpu and a 2nd Opteron 270 cpu is brought online in October sometime.

Ouch! Steady mate!

@Susuki, nice to see another Lancastrian around.


There's a few of us here - keeping up the numbers! Where are you based? I'm back in Blackpool at the minute (born here) ... likely to stop here too.

The avatar pic is taken at Crown Point in Burnley (used to live there). Nice spot for a quick ciggy after a good ride on the bike.

I work in Bath, and travel around a lot for work too - means I have to remote control my PC's from naff Travel Lodge hotel rooms with dodgy wireless connections, but hey - keeps the funds coming in.

New job starts a week tomorrow, so will be looking to donate to SETI again after the first pay day!

OK, apparently some Core 2 Duo owners are feeling like they're not "adding up" because of their slower clock speeds but better performance.

Would everyone agree upon GFLOPS per second? Would that be more fair? If so, how would one go about finding out their GFLOPS in a relatively easy way? For example, I have a few systems across town and if I have to run a program on them, it would be a waste of gas just for this fun exercise to drive to each system and run a program.

I just wanted something fun to do with everyone here and thought this unscientific experiment would be interesting, but I want it to be fair as well.

Please let me know, everyone. And thanks so far for participating.

I have 18.206 at current across 7 comps.
More to come, he he he. When finances allow.

Question, though, wouldn't a Mips benchmark be more of a accurate measurement of what you are looking for?
