SETI@Home Client on Opteron - Benchmarks


Not sure if this should be in the hardware section… might cross post. :slight_smile:

Haven’t had time to read the fully article but…

It makes me wonder why they bothered spending the time on compiling for the Opteron when SETI 1 is due to finish “real soon now” and they haven’t updated the client for other hardware advances/architectures.

Perhaps AMD paid them, as the Opteron is faster than an Athlon XP in 32 bit and 64 bit mode, with 32 bit mode beating 64 bit (which is a surprise).
