Windows SMP crawling

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My first run at Window SMP and my first project is this monster 2610 - 1523 points. Problem is my machine is running at a crawl - day 4 and I'm only 18 percent done. I can't tell if it is Windows SMP on my oc'd opty 170 or 2610 that is bringing me to my knees. Any ideas?

2610's love cache...more cache, the better they do.

AMD's are slower at it than Core 2 Duo's because they are slower, but mostly because they have less cache.

Most work units don't care as much about cache as 2610's do...2605's are fast on everything.

So do you think that once I am off 2610 that I'll see some of the benefits everyone's talking about with SMP?

Yeah.
Unless you hit another 2610.

It obviously won't be as fast as people on Core 2 Duo's, but it won't be a wasted effort either.

Cool thanx.....I wanted to go VMWARE but can't give up the memory as I do a lot of video rendering, so I was glad to see Windows SMP .. I admit I was disappointed to see the crawl. BUt I'll just hang through this project..

There must be something wrong, it should be much farther than 18%. 4 days is all that is allowed on SMP WUs. After that the WU will just delete itself and start on another. I know it is an AMD and that they have a dissadvantage with SMP, but not that much of a dissadvantage. Can you post some of you log file, and list what options you selected in you client setup? At this rate you will not finish a WU in the time needed.

Let get it figured out.

My X2-3800 is working on one now (38 min steps), less than 3 days.
