I have an ATI Radeon X1900 in my Mac. Two questions.

1) "...that means HD38x0, HD4670?? and HD48x0" What the heck does that mean? Which cards/chips are we talking about?

2) Will this app work on Macs?


your X1900 will not work. you need at least a card with the RV670 chip (3850, 3870) or with RV770 chip (4830, 4850, 4870).
In principle all ATIs starting from the RV670 should work, but sometimes the double precision is locked by either the bios or driver (4670 refused to work)

The problem to give the right credits for a WU will be even more funny when the GPU-apl is ready ;)
Which will be MUCH faster than the SSE2/SSSE3 Win-versions.

he is an active user here in the mw board, dont worry ;)

The ones with the error, are you guys using linux?

yes, they are using linux. have a look into their task ID and computer ID there ;)

Yeah this is fine. It would be nice to see how it does with a couple different inputs, just to make sure. Is this optimized app done with compiler flags or has there been significant code changes? If the 2nd is the case it would be nice if they were shared so we could update the stock app.

Im not shure but i think they "hand-optimzed" the code rather using compiler flags, dont know whtat is significant for you ;) . but better to ask them directly.

Faster applications returns incorrect results.

Original app:
fitness: -3.046272445362277

"Faster app":
fitness: -3.046289346362010

sesef, could you also check your faster app you are using please?


which applications do you mean?

sorry i thought in your team there where also optimized apps used made by some of your teammade.
i had the user mindc in my mind.
nevermind if im wrong.

Thx for the info. i linked this thread to p3d, so they can have a look into it.

Invalid results are of course not the intention of the opt-apps

Can anyone tell me which DL to use for 64bit and which one to use for 32bit windoz?

they run on both, 32 and 64bit

[quote]Thanks for the links.

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

all of the apps i gave the link are for 32 and 64bit windows

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.

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

I guess important is ,every time these Germans start complaining or crying around to start rethink the way the project works!

ok folks let us now celebrate the Germanization of MW !

Congrats to the most stupid post i ever read here ;)

btw you know that both, Milksoap and crunch3r are german do you?

Then we are all on a level playing field.

again, this shows that you are not interested in the project itselfs, you just want others beeing as capable as you.
The project is able to make 100x more science in the same time, so a optimized app it actually good for them. milksaop is a teamless cruncher and he is aware that his account ist a "throw-away"-account, so no team or single cruncher should be threatenend

Go play in someone elses sandbox and stop causing trouble.

speaking about sandboxes, thats exact the image i have in mind when i read your and your fellows posts. a crying baby in a sandbox cause another have a bigger shovel than you.

Why wait to break the project you said yourself it's been going on for months without any indication from the project as to when or if they will implement it. Don't talk about it JUST DO IT or are you to AFRAID ? you afraid you won't be seen as an upstanding honest fella of the boinc community. Don't make threats you and your cronies are not prepared to commit to. You have no credibility left.


So YOU would kill the project if you had the opportunity? Good to know.
You and your fellows are the reason why the optimized apps from crunch3r and milksoap shouldnt be shared.
All of your post show the same subliminal tendency of what your REAL issues are:
You are jealous and want that optimized app so you can make credits.
