Hi all,

I am not sure if this has been answered somewhere else already... but I am seeing large differences between the amount of credit each WU is being granted based on the type of machine.

I am running Enigma@home on several machines below is a snapshot of WUs returned yesterday and the amount of credit awarded. Each WU takes about 1h to finish but my Win7 machines gets almost 7x more credit than the WinXP machine.

What is driving this difference? Is it supposed to work this way? Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance!


Intel i5 -2.4 Ghz - win XP:
3,382.83 seconds - 3.96 credit - pldrv48-2-x

Intel i7 870 - 2.93 Ghz - OS X 10.6.
3,430.27 seconds - 14.05 credit - pldrv48-2-x

Intel i7 950 - 3.2 Ghz - Win7 64
2,758.17 seconds - 21.24 credit - pldrv48-2-x

Uhhhh...How'd you get the v5.23 app? Mine is still v5.22, but then again I'm running the optimized app. Not sure why you'd get different credit scores.

v5.23 is for OS X.
No I don't think the credit for your XP machine should be that low. At least it isn't on mine. You might want to try running the optimized app.

thanks for the replies!

I am now using the optimized app on the Win XP machine and the first couple WUs are returning credits comparable to the Win7 machine. I will keep monitoring it.

It seems the more WU`s I complete, the lower my RAC goes. I returned 15 completed WU`s this morning and my RAC dropped 22 points.
