Windows smp client released

Recommended Posts

halogammer did the setting of it up for me, however it didnt want to connect at first, the servers were down...then when it started to work, it was going to take too long on my AMP 1200+ processors, so console version is going to work better :)

Running a X2 5200+...should I install the SMP Client or set up the regular [email protected] client for both cores? Which will have the best results? And is the SMP Client stable, despite being beta? (stability is important because this is my work computer, not home)

SMP definetly, but I dunno bout the Windows SMP client. What kind of work do you do, cause if you run the Linux SMP in VMware (best of the best), it won't slow down when you need extra processor resources. The Windows SMP should still be better than dual instances still.

If your concerned about Points, as how most [email protected] stats are taken, then the SMP Client would be better..

Now if your more concerned about gettings alot of WU's done reguardless of the amount of points they are worth then you should have two instances of the regular console version. ( I think, Depends on the Proc I guess.)

 

As for stability, its always stable at stock speeds. Only some people like me, have problems with High OCs.

 

For example I am currently testing 3.294 Ghz for SMP Stability. Ill let it run for two days or so and if SMP has no problems then Ill try to move up.

 

I had to start over when SMP would NOT run stable at 3.41 GHz.

 

Edit: On the 2610 WU's I get about 12 Minutes and 30 seconds a Percent when I am not using computer.

Definitely install SMP if you want more points per day. As far as work units I think the SMP gets a lot more done in one WU than the old clients. Theres a reason they came out with SMP and you can believe it was not to just give us more points. I promise you that!

Will VM_Ware allow me to run it as a service?

Not that I know of. The service option does not work yet unless theres a way that I do not know about.

Ah, okay. Then I guess I'll just do dual regular clients. Thanks.

The Windows SMP client does not yet support running as a service, so I haven't jumped in yet.
