Message 8264 - Posted: 12 Jan 2009, 13:22:03 UTC

Is there a new faster application available?

I've found by accident that user NetMonitoring is delivering results with a runtime of 400 seconds each.
Task info shows he's running application version 0.71.
Official application version is 0.07.

Anyone any idea where to get this faster app?

Probably from that user. Would be a custom app.

If you were using Linux, petros or I could help you out... ;-)

Has anyone made a faster app for XP?

Well, NetMonitoring was running the app on a Windows XP machine
according to the Computer entry of the task id.

Obviously there *is* a faster app for XP out somewhere ...

Well I suppose I should add: One that someone is willing to share?

Curious that nowbody linked it already, we have them ;)
Their are SSE,SSE2,SSE3,SSSE3 and SSE4.1 optimized apps already available, you just have to read in our forum ;)
http://www.planet3dnow.de/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=353616
The P3D Member Gipsel and twodee made apps with following extensions:
with SSE a WU take ~1500sec
with SSE2 ~400sec
with SSE3 ~300sec
with SSE4.1 ~200sec
all on a C2Q@3ghz
because Gipsel and twodee made thier app independtly from each other their are sometimes 2 versions per apps. their are aproximatly the same with minor differences in speed.
you may also need a app-info.xml file

SSE Version for older PCs:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-1319985/MW_SSEV2.zip.html
and here
http://139.30.40.11/Milkyway_SSE.zip

SSE2:
http://www.2shared.com/file/4437840/f43e8ff7/MW-SSE2.html
and here
http://www.file-upload.net/download-1311757/astronomy_sse2_app.exe.html
SSE3:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-1319985/MW_SSEV2.zip.html
SSE2+SSE3
http://www.file-upload.net/download-1320653/MW.rar.html

the sse4.1 is not availible at the moment

Gispel is working on a GPU-app für ATI cards. he is searching volunteers for testing his GPU-app under win64 with ATI cards. if some wants to test it, please pm gipsel in the p3d board

If the GPU-app is working a WU could be crunched in 20sek (but 1 cpu core would probably be used also

Thanks for the links.

How do I figure out which I have? I would guess sse or sse2. My pc's a P4 xp.

if its a pre-Prescot P4 take the SSE2, if it is a Prescot oder cedar mill take the SSE3.
or just use cpu-z to look which extensions you can run.

CPU-Z will tell you!

Let me know when you find one of these fast/optimised MW clients for Windows and the link, please.

Thanks sandro, your links are much appreciated.

I've only just started to try them out and can see everything ticking away faster. What was indicating at over 1 hour to complete is now showing at under 40 minutes. Not very scientific I know, but they seem to be doing the trick...

I think I'm missing something. Boinc wants to keep downloading the official app. I added an app_info file I converted from milksops app. And now I'm getting "no work", so I can't tell if I did it right.

Here's what I have in that file:
<app_info>
<app>
<name>astronomy</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>astronomy_sse2_app.exe</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>
<app_version>
<app_name>astronomy</app_name>
<version_num>1</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>astronomy_sse2_app.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
<app_info>

banditwolf, there is an app_info file for all SSE, SSE2 and SSE3 in the downloads (one download has it missing, but all can be found in sandro's links - you don't have to make any app_info files)

I'm using all 3 and they all seem to be working OK.

I went with the 2nd sse2, only the exe file. The first is a .rar file. I don't know how to extract that one.

Cripes! get winzip or winrar quick - WUs that took over an hour an hour ago are now rolling off at under 20 minutes on my core 2 duo.

Didn't realize there was a winrar. I have winzip. I undid that file and put it in. I am still getting "no work", I think that is a response to my aborted files.

Thanks for the help. When I get work I'll add the times.

I'm not surprised. They'll be a bit of a rush on for these I expect ;) I'm down to a shade over 8 minutes for a WU that just a little while ago was taking an hour and 8 minutes

Gipsel is working on a GPU-app für ATI cards. he is searching volunteers for testing his GPU-app under win64 with ATI cards. if some wants to test it, please pm gipsel in the p3d board

If the GPU-app is working a WU could be crunched in 20sek (but 1 cpu core would probably be used also

Actually, that's nothing finished yet and the 20 seconds are just a first very rough estimate for a HD4870 based on still buggy code I have not much time working on. Furthermore, there are already some volunteers for testing.

So please, don't bombard me with PMs!


Thanks.

PS:
Why the hell the BOINC client only recognizes CUDA devices as accelerators in the moment? Give ATI a chance! Their cards have superior performance with double precision. NVidia cards can hardly beat a good quad core with doubles!

PS2, note to the project:
The credit limit in its current incarnation is not going to work with a GPU-App, as there will be very little CPU time spent on a WU, on which the limit bases. You should think about it and prepare something! Just in case I (or someone else) get this thing running. How about really fixed and adequately scaled credits without a limit at all?
