As previously mentioned, the work that Kakace was doing improve the
existing OGR-P2 cores has indeed resulted in further speed
improvements for even non-PPC processors as well:

On a 64-bit AMD Opteron system:
Before = OGR-P2: Benchmark for core #0 (GARSP 5.13)
0.00:00:16.33 [14,123,965 nodes/sec]
After = OGR-P2: Benchmark for core #0 (GARSP 6.0-64)
0.00:00:16.22 [23,151,097 nodes/sec]

And even a slight gain on Intel Pentium III (Tualatin) system:
Before = OGR-P2: Benchmark for core #0 (GARSP 5.13-A)
0.00:00:16.60 [8,192,495 nodes/sec]
After = OGR-P2: Benchmark for core #0 (GARSP 6.0-A)
0.00:00:25.64 [8,709,555 nodes/sec]

There will be a number of new pre-release clients made available in
the next day or so, so eager testers can look forward to playing with
them soon! :)

:cool:

me thinks it is time to invest in some Operton goodness :D

new pre-release client now available.

here (http://www.distributed.net/download/prerelease.php)


im seeing more than 20 percent faster ogr processing on AMD machines.

Your mileage may vary.

Woot, I'll just have to try it on the AMD64 machines :)

Thanks for the info Beyond!

Bok :D

Bok, it would be interesting to know the node/sec rate you are seeing with the 'new' client on the AMD64 machine(s).

Whoa! This new PPC core is flying.

933Mhz G4 QS:

Old core: ~11.1M n/s
New core: ~23M n/s


800Mhz G3 B&W:

Old core: 7.9M n/s
New core: 13.3M n/s


Large gains even w/out the Altivec engine is really impressive.


Amazing. :shocked:

I'll try and get to it tomorrow, no promises though, I'm slammed at work tomorrow :(

~9.0M n/s on a AMD 1100Mhz
~16.5M n/s on a AMD2200+

33M in ogr-p2 at 1800 G5.

And just imagine dual G5 2.25 GHz.


I'm a numba 2 ina daily stats for OGR24-P2 - 30000 per day....

hmmm,

there only appears to be an updated client for AMD64 on FreeBSD on that page. My A64 machines are all linux, so we'll have to wait.....thought I guess the FreeBSD version *might* run on linux.

Rocking numbers Death!! :thumbs:

You digging your G5?

I cut my G4 and G3 over to OGR for a few days....best bang for processing buck going right now.

I agree, looks like the linux client version only at xxx491, with no speed improvements, in fact may be a bit slower than the xxx489, xxx490 clients. :(

has this become the "normal" client yet?
can i squeeze some more from my boxen using this ?

Use it. I get my numbers out of a measly 1.7Ghz :)

No reason to not expect it to become the "offical" client. Besides, they won't take your points away regardless :smoking:

Just fired it up on the Dual Xeon 3.6s
First blush... 50M n/s in ogr-p2 :D
I'll let it burn in here for a little while... ;)

<envy>After a few calculations, that box alone should be good for upwards of 4T per DAY.</envy>

Sounds pretty impressive !! But I would expect more than 4T....

I ran OGR on a 12-way-1.2Ghz Sun box early this year and it was posting something like 12T per day

I was merely using the 50,000,000 nodes/sec that IB gave.

50,000,000 * 60 = 3,000,000,000 nodes/minute (3G)
3,000,000,000 * 60 = 180,000,000,000 nodes/hour (180G)
180,000,000,000 * 24 = 4,320,000,000,000 nodes/day (4.32T)

In 7 hours 890.47 G :)
