You're right!

I have screwed it up...

This was the same client I had done tests myself and haven't realised that.
I have submitted those results as well.

Matt, your core crunches 3,976,830 keys/sec comparing to DG-3's
3,322,619 keys/sec, so your core is faster than the original on Pentium 4
as well.


Oh, I guess I'll go sit in the corner.

I have a problem with the binaries. The Cow benchmarks SGP 3-pipe
correctly but refuses to benchmark GO 2-pipe (I have an Athlon...) and
MA 3-pipe. Instead it benchmarks ANSI 1-pipe??

So if you want me to report my performance you'll need to fix this or to
tell me what I'm doing wrong :-)

Betreff: [RC5] Three new cores - binary version


I think it's great effort placed currently on optimising d.net rc5
I'm aware of at least three new cores which are being developed,
but are unavailable even on beta clients at the moment.

I know that there are many people which would like to test those
cores on their systems and share their performance results.

All after all the more good performance results we get, the more
probability those cores being included in near future.

So well, I have created a version of d.net client equipped with those
three additional cores and put it on my server.

If somebody is interested than fell free to download and check
the performance. New cores are:
- 9 - SGP 3-pipe - my core optimised for Pentium 4 / Xeon
- 10 - GO 2-pipe - core by Vyacheslav Chupyatov optimised for Athlons
- 11 - MA 3-pipe - core by Matt Andrews optimised for Pentium M
       (am I corrent here, Matt?)

The download is here (Windows version compiled by Visual Studio .NET
(the link may wrap)

Please please please report the performane you get with the client.
Preferrably on bugzilla entries, but it would be ok as well to report it
this list.

Have fun,
