1) Message boards : Number crunching : Strange cpu behaviour (Message 142)
Posted 20 Apr 2015 by Aurel
On an "old" mobile cpu (Intel T4400, with 2200 Whetstone and 4270 Dhrystone) wus duration is 1800 secs. With other cpu (Amd FX-6300, with 2850 Whetstone and 10500 Dhrystone) wus are 2800 secs. Both are Win7.
Is it normal?

Please give us the device number. (via URL)

Hi everyone!

Seeing the different hosts that you use, I have a question for you! Why did you selected your OS? I have read that for example to use BOINC usually Linux systems are faster than Windows, but they aren't so much clear.

I ask it also because I usually use Ubuntu or Debian linux system and maybe in a future i will try other linux OS.

Let's talk about OS Best and worse points!

Nice idea. ^^

I use on my little "tower" Win 7 Pro, the reason: Gaming. My new computer will get Steam OS, but BOINC is not supported yet. Steam OS is nearly not-config-able (My last informations from the beta-test last year in an VM)

My notebook has Win 8.1...:( I don´t like theses OS. My tests to delete has failed...

My 2 vServers and one Hardware-Server are using Linux Ubuntu 12.04 with graphical surface. They are for online back-up´s and my ongoing BOINC-project(s).

At work and at home I tested some other OS´s, like Mint 15; 16; 17, Debian 7 and Q4OS-Beta (german Linux OS; still in BETA-mode)

Windows/Linux computing time

Well, thats not so easy to answer. Mostly Linux is faster than windows; e.g. NumberFields@Home [30% difference for the same task].
Some applications will run with nearly zero difference.
It always an question from used hardware and his age.

It can be university Internet service. Maybe there are some maintenance operations that we haven't been informed. If the problem continues in approximately 12 hours, we will search for a solution.

Thanks for the info.

Yes. Your Website is slow, too.

1064 ms for GET forum_index.php

At the moment I only have an download ratio from 1,02 KB/s. :)
You should realy talk with your IT-Department. ;)
