If you want to crunch those WU's faster, try these clients.

http://www.marisan.nl/seti/index.htm

These clients have been compiled to run best with whatever processor instructions your CPU can support. They're amazing! My 2.8GHz Prescott P4/533 Mhz/1Mb L2 went from 3 hours per WU down to 1:20 hours! They work like a champ!

Crunch3r's apps are even faster

I agree with you about optimised clients from crunch3Rr.

I don't think so. I've tried a Crunch3r's optimized client on my AMD64 and it was doing work very strange. The client reported time of 8 mins but the actual time that was past from the start was around 12 mins
Well, I suppose that depends what version of his app you're using, and what OS it's on.

As far as I know, i'm using the latest (25th december 2005 release) for windows, with no problems except for the occasional app crash, but that's only 1 in every 1000 or so. For windows at least they're defenately quite a bit faster than TMRs

My tests are also based on the latest version for the AMD64 with SSE3 for windows. So i think that is not the case

i've heard there's only a very small gain with using SSE3 over SSE2, so you might want to try the SSE2 version

Ah, i'm using SSE2 on a P4 and SSE on P3's
that's probably the reason

I can't remeber which one i use but I think it's Marisan. I am running a 1.5 Ghz Celeron M processor with 1 Gb of ram. Without optimized client was around 2 hours 40 min. with is about 50 min.

The real time (stopped manually by clock) will always be a little more than pure cpu time.
Other threads/apps have to get some cpu time to do their work, like anti-virus, the BoincManager or BoincView, firewall, browser, e-mail clients, etc. etc.

Or do you say the reported time in the manager differs from the reported time on the result page at berkeley?
In that case I should ask: Do you use the calibrating core client by truXoft? His version manipulates the reported time and mflops for every wu to get a fair amount of claimed credit. So it is normal to get a different time on the result page than in the manager.

Seems weird. Because I'm using Crunch3r's Athlon 64 client with SSE3 instructions (given mine has a Venice core, which added SSE3 instructions to it), and have had no such timing issues. Getting about 44 minutes/WU...

Mine's also the 12/25/05 version...

Can't explain the discrepency in results, unless it's dependent on a difference in core steppings in our respective A64s, or some other difference in the respective systems... Hmm
