Cosmology@Home units processed on Athlon XP 2600+ with max speed about 1 WU / 5 hours (with PC3200 RAM).

Correction: actually two hosts. One - my home Athlon, and P4 that works too seldom.

Your hardware sense needs an overhaul. As comfortable as you are with your legacy rig, it\'s time to add some computing power to compliment your motivation. I have enough spare parts laying around to put together a 64bit Linux rig. You can probably do it for under 300 bux.

Thank you for attention!

Interesting idea, but I worry for their delivery into Russia and potential amount of documents, which must be written. (I do not know how many - may be a zero, but I do not believe that small).

Today, main computer - C2D E6550@[(2.33 -> 3.15)GHz] crunch only Einstein WU\'s for increase CS/traffic relation. Cosmology@Home units processed on Athlon XP 2600+ with max speed about 1 WU / 5 hours (with PC3200 RAM). But quality of calculations on this computer is unstable. In first of all I want to solve a problem of computation stability.

Thank you!

Hello!

I like astronomy, physics, \"space discoveries\" and impressed with growth of power of modern computers. I am glad, that I can help a science.
