Hi everyone!
I just downloaded the new v2.7102.424 Client for Win9x/NT.
Installed it on my P-II 266(=>300mHz)  ___you all should know ; )
Well, the (let me say "little") Problem is:
Making a benchmark, i figured out, that he is doing a poor job,
I get 799,676 kkeys for RC5 (instead of 838,926 v2.7100.417 GUI-Client)
and 2.405.335 keys for DES (2.432.890 with the GUI)
I repeated the test some times (closing some apps between), keyrate
growed, but the new client was slower anyway!

Whats wrong with my PC/D-Net's Client or is it just because the new
Client does another Benchmarking?? (DES-III not DES-II     =>shouldn't
it be the same speed anyway??)
Or.: Isn't it the last client which will be released before DES-III ?

          Happy cracking anyway


PS.: Since I'm not subscribed to rc5 (only rc5-digest) and DES-II test
starts this evening (hihi, I don't have to get up early for DES), please
send a copy of your reply to me, thx
