View Full Version : SETI@Home client
For those of you that run the SETI@Home thingy, how long does your computer take to do a work unit? My Duron 840 is at hour 35 so far, and only 70% done.

each work unit is different..so the fact that you're saying it's at 70% right now tells me nothing :P
the 35 hour thing is the cpu time...so, i think good way to measure is real time vs seti cpu time
my celery 466 is pretty close to 1:1 while my tbird 1.4 is much faster...but I haven't been bored enough to really measure it :P

I asked about this earlier in a post...
My K6-2 400 used to do a unit in about 100 hours on average, but when I upgraded the ram it dropped down to about 70 hours. My Duron system isn't on the internet yet, so I can't tell you from that, but one of the guys that replied to my thread said that their T-bird would do about 2 units in a night.

my p4-1.4 is doing 1 unit every 2 hours for the past few days.
just my 2 cents.

I've actually heard that macs were the fastest at the Seti program, or atleast were for their clock speed anyway....
I remember hearing about a test done when the PIII 600's came out. The Pentium 3 600 did 1 unit in 26 hours, the G4 400 did a unit in 6 hours...
Anyway, just remembered that... fyi
I'm thinking of doing a quickie small Linux install on my Duron840 to see what the Linux client can do.
