Ok, my two pence worth.

On a bog standard Intel dual core @ 2.13 GHz, Windows XP, 4 G RAM, the projects that I've crunched this year give the following credits an hour per core.

Seti - 41 optimised client
Cosmology - 39
QMC - 36
Milkyway - 33 optimised client
Milkyway - 30 'old' client
PrimeGrid - 18 - 29 depending on sub project
Poem - 24
ABC - 22
Enigma - 20 optimised client
Einstein - 20
Magnetism - 16
NQueens - 14

Bearing in mind that I haven't run some of the projects for a couple of months and the rate may have changed, the optimised client returns slightly more than the old client for Milkway but still less than the optimised client for Seti. I don't have any data for the stock client on Seti as I haven't used that recently.

Looks to me that it's about right at the moment even if it's more than the Seti stock client.

Think I must be doing something wrong then, 41 credits an hour on Seti with the optimised app, 33 credits an hour with the new app here. Intel dual core @ 2.1GHz.
