-advmethods = 3dnow Boost?

Recommended Posts

Well, it seems that when I have the -advmethods tag going, I get the 3DNow boost, when I take it off, I get SSE(or whatever).

 

I know my comp goes a lot faster with SSE, should I just take the -advmethods thing off?

yeah - the whole point is to get it to run as fast as possible - so yes take it off

Hmmmmm

 

-advmethods

Request to be assigned any new Cores or work units.

 

do you mean the "-forceasm" flag instead

 

-forceasm

Instruct the core to use SSE/3DNow assembly instructions if possible, even if it has previously made the determination that the machine may not be handling this well.

 

 

 

 

OK... i just checked.. with my XP2400 running at 2239mhz....

I am working on p639....and my system runs 5 seconds per fram FASTER WITH the -forceasm flag..

 

while that doesn't sound like much... it adds up to over 33 minutes of processor time... OK.. so it isn't that much, but it is something

I just find that with the -advmethods -forceasm flags on I always get the 3DNow boost, which is slower (a lot) on my comp. However, taking off the -advmethods flag, I still get the same work units, but it goes faster cause I get the SSE boost

 

Weird.

well - every computer is going to be different so just make sure that your running SSE instead of 3DNow
