-forceasm Flag

Recommended Posts

This sort of goes with another post......

http://forums.overclockersclub.com/?act=ST...T&f=37&t=10830&

 

but wanted to relay what I have tested out.....

 

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

 

 

 

BUT

 

on my 1700 running at a blazing 1525 (or so..)

 

I saved just OVER 1 minute per frame with the -forceASM flag OFF....

 

average 6:43 per frame WITH

average 5:41 per frame WITHOUT the flag...

 

on the current Work Unit it is on...(p678).. that adds up to a time savings of OVER 6 and a half HOURS!!

 

Now that is something...

 

Your results may vary, but thought I would pass it along

I'm semi-new to folding...

Does that work with the cilent verison or the graphic verison, or better yet, both?

Sorry... forgot that...

 

the "flags" only work for the console version

 

 

as far as I am aware... but I have never run the GUI version....

I normally use the console verison, but it started going crazy on my comp for some reason. I downloaded the GUI and it works fine...

 

Oh well, I'll just have to deal with it...lol

well the gui is graphical user interface and the command line client is like a dos interface - the CLI runs a tad bit faster because your computer isnt spending CPU cycles on drawing the graphics out so if you want maxium speed go with the CLI - if you want maxium readability go with the GUI

very nice info exeter :) . looks like some amd athlon xp setups can/should make use of the 3dnow optimization! i wonder if there is a specific turning point point at which to change between 3dnow optimizations and SSE opt. maybe i'll check to see if i get simular results when running one of my comps at a lower core frequency. very useful info exeter! nice job on the findings :D
