that looks better

there's a mistake in both app_info.xml files though, they still reference the 64bit apps.
Once I corrected that they both ran ok

I'll keep an eye on them and report back

for reference, SSE2 host and SSE3 host

SSE2 host has returned a WU

stock app ~5120 seconds

new SSE2 app 3,157.28 seconds

very nice

Well done speedimic

edit
and the SSE3 machine
stock app ~6580 seconds/WU
SSE3 app ~4444 seconds

I need a Linux SSE version. Got a dual-P3 Slot 1 (KATMAI) setup which could use it.

Message 8632 - Posted: 19 Jan 2009, 1:40:45 UTC - in response to Message 8580.  

I tried your application Speedimic,
unfortunately it trashed a complete load of work units with the error "Process exited with code 1".

My machine is an AMD 285 running Fedora Core 6 and is SSE3 capable.

I have checked what you supplied and cross checked the 'app-info' file to see if that was the problem, but all looked ok to this non programmer.

I have removed the 'app-info' file and gone back to the stock app.

The opptimised apps for Windows are working fine (I think Cluster Phyics made these), dropping my P4 253 from 1h 30m to 11m and dropping my AMD 285 WinXP machine from 45m to 8m.

I suppose I could try the SSE2 app and see if that works.

Thanks again for you effort in this.

that could be because speedimic apps are set for version 0.9 and you had already downloaded WUs marked for app version 0.10.
Try it again, let it trash your current WUs and it will then download another set and should work ok
it did the same for me

edit
or amend the app_info.xml to suit the WUs you already have

Another reason could be that I use the Intel compiler.
Maybe it doesn't like AMD cpus.
ATM I got no access to my AMD rig to verify that.

Someone else tried my app with AMD??

Thanks for that, just a question, if I modify the app-info.xml file I only have to change the line
<version_num>9</version_num>
to
<version_num>10</version_num>
don't I ??

So far it is trashing work units in fine form. I hope this will stop soon.

Err....
Probably :/

I didn't edit app_info.xml on any of my rigs, I just let it download more WUs against v0.9

Give it a go and see what happens, remember to stop boinc first though

If only the version number is the problem that's right.

In that case it trashes every Wu you got, but should work for those newly downloaded.

Well that doesn't work. Have now wiped out download after download of work units, so I will go back to standard.
I can't get this one to work at all. But thanks for trying.

Message 8788 - Posted: 20 Jan 2009, 22:48:57 UTC - in response to Message 8682.  

Does anyone have the Intel icpc compiler on Mac?

I've compiled a i686 SSE3 app with g++ and while it is faster, its only slightly faster.
If we could get it compiled with icpc then I'm sure we could have a much faster app.

Anyone?

I think I'm going to bug our labstaff and see if we have icpc available to us (maybe a campus license or something of that sort).

How would you go about compiling a 32bit Win (XP) version?

Yes, you would probably need Microsoft's Visual C++ compiler. However, it's also possible that the Windows application uses a different source. Travis, do you have any input? What compiler, options, and source do you use?


Bump because I want the answer so I can mess with compiling.

Dave does all the windows compilation because I don't have a windows machine.

Also using google is worth a shot.
