    Back running SETI again

    Been 4 years since i last logged in here.Dunno why but was thinking of SETI and the old amdmb.com crew that used to be on irc.So I downloaded the mac client and am back in the game.Just might have to install an irc client and see if any of the old boys are still there...

    Yeah that old channel disappeared long ago, but a some of the old crew still hangs out here.

    Glad you made it back!

    Hey do you have a PC with a modern video card? If you do you should check out the numbers you can get on one of them.

    this rig is a pc running macosx.Has an intel quad 6600 and 9800 gt nvidia card in it. Don't know if it can crunch faster or not? I should set up boinc on my amd quad 940 with an ati 4890 vidcard? Which rig would be a better cruncher?

    Welcome back, good to see some new/old competition.

    BTW ... anyone had any luck getting the CPU client and GPU client to play together nicely?

    If you're only running SETI you'll need the 9800gt for GPU crunching, SETI doesn't support AMD GPUs... yet. SetiBeta is still testing Astropulse for AMD cards. I don't know how those two CPUs compare so I couldn't tell you which setup would be better though. Either way, check out the optimized apps here.

    Which projects are you having trouble with? Have you tired setting the GPU to suspend while the computer is in use (keyboard or mouse)?

    I was running 32Bit Linux on a 6600 with a 9800GTX. So I wasn't able to get the video card to crunch for me (I needed a 64Bit Linux or Windows OS). I'm not sure what the requirements would be running Mac OS X.

    In either case, ai5000 linked to some good CPU optimized clients (including some for Mac OS X). That should give you a speed boost.
