hi there, new to cosmology@home and i was wondering if there are any plans for 64 bit version of your CAMB software? i am currently running the latest 64 bit boinc client but i see that yours is running 32 bit. thanks.

Hello Kevin and "Penguin5540",

We are currently building new versions of the app. Building windows apps is much more labor intensive than for Linux so I am not sure we'll have two versions, but we'll consider it.

"What's the advantage from your perspective?": As a general rule performance differences between 32 and 64 bit versions under Linux are slight and I remember tests of early 64 bit windows versions which supported this position.

On behalf of the Cosmology@Home Team,
