    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    396 as of this morning.

    Annoyingly, one of my work laptops seems to have died :s

    Currently got this lot running:

    Home
    -------
    E6600 @ 2.7Ghz - SMP Client
    IMac Intel Core - SMP Client
    P4 2.4 GHz Laptop - Single Core
    AMD XB2400 @ 1.8Ghz - Single Core

    Work
    ------
    C2D @ 2Ghz Latop - SMP Client
    P4 2.8Ghz Test Server - Single Core

    Hopefully this lot will help when a get the first round of units completed

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    Well the SMP units will be worth 1760 points each and the single core depends on what type of unit it is running but a good estimate is ~300 points each (some can be worth 180 some 350, who can say!). So your looking at ~6200 points for that little lot when they come in, I'm happy for the team all folding is good folding, but sad for me as you will be another person I can't match in folding performance due to complete lack of additional computers...

    Team Ranking (incl. aggregate) 399 of 88112

    and my smp units all landed

    another note: intel > amd.

    all are 2.6ghz chips, so it's not a clock speed thing - xeon is simply faster for floating point code

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    I'd second the AMD vs Intel at floating point,

    My AMD machine is hugely slower that any of the others, it's doing a tiny 1500 frame job at about 3 mins per frame :s

    The P4 Home laptop (which i think is actually only 1.8Ghz, got it confused with work laptop (which then broke)) is doing a 5000 frame job at about 30 seconds per frame.

    P.S. Sorry Webby will take me a long time to reach the levels you guys have already achieved though

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    True,

    Frustrated at the length of time it takes to get some stats on the board though! Am I right in thinking I need to complete a WU, or is it just a periodic update that I missed (maybe 24 hours or something)

    Generally you'll start to show once you've completed a WU.

    when you complete a WU, it ought to appear on the stanford site. the extremeclocking site has a delay of lots of hours, as it's processed in batches (the time due for the next data dump is at the top left of the page)

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    That makes sense, my main home PC was up to about 30% of a large SMP WU when i left for work this morning (had been running for about 6 hours)

    Hopefully will complete at some point tonight, tomorrow morning at the latest

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    If thats the E6600 then assuming your in windows (linux is apparently loads faster for SMP) you will be looking at somewhere around 27-28 hours for each SMP unit I would think.

    My E6550 at 2.8GHz runs a SMP unit in about 26 hours when it was at stock 2.33GHz it ran at about 30 hours, at 2.5GHz was 28.5 hours and at 2.65GHz 27 hours (all times approx and to the nearest hour).

    I may clock it up to 3GHz tonight just to see if it can

    Oh and you will soon catch up as I go home (from Uni) tomorrow and will have to share a room with my PC and while its not loud the lights in the keybard and mouse are a bit bright for sleeping next to! So I will drop from 24 hours a day folding to probably 16-18 depending on how much sleep I need! On the plus side I have an old PC at home I can fold on as well, but its going to be slow (old 2GHz Celeron).

    Would be interesting to know how the Mac does for SMP - I could get my good lady friend's Macbook Pro and get it folding without her knowledge or maybe with her knowledge after all I don't want to die!

    Re: 400 just around the corner...

    Yes, it's the 6600. I think it was a half million step unit, and i was doing about 1% per 16 mins.

    So i guess, 1600 mins or 26.66 Hours, which matches up to what you're saying.

    I could happily push the processor to 3.15Ghz without any issues. Only thing i was seeing was that pushing the FSB above 355-360 seemed to make the PCI-e bus width drop to 1x.

    I was told it was a quirk with the P5B and lowering the multiplier and upping the fsb above 400 would sort it, but it doesn't seem to.

    The mac is a funny one, i got it folding quite happily, but I'm unsure how to monitor it, the install suggests altering settings such as name and team in the system preferences, which i have done. But no idea how to see progress on it

    Yeah but Fermilab are going to go past us in 0 time flat!. 800K points yesterday alone...., if its going at the same rate another 400K to hit in a few hours time. Someone has got a cluster like DirectHex's folding flat out!.

    Makes our processing power look rather pitiful.... oh to have a cluster like that to play with. (and i'm sure before Directhex points out, I BET its running linux

    We're still making steady progress though, and that's what f@h is all about - lots of people pulling together rather than a monster cluster pulling in silly numbers. They could just be stress testing for all we know
