According to: www.enigmaathome.net/cpu_os.php , the Speed Index is "a single core, single thread performance, average credits/hour."

Is there any way to calculate my own Speed Index? I'd imagine the only way to do this is wait a few days, and get an average credits/day, and then divide by 24 hours and 8 logical cores (or threads, I suppose). Is this correct?

I have my CPU overclocked a bit, and wanted to see if my "Speed Index" is higher than the average for my CPU as is listed on that table.

Thanks,

Rich

You have to divide the granted credits by CPU time used by app to process the task (you can find both at workunit/result page for each task).
It won't be precise for a single task, but average taken from 10-20 tasks should give realistic values.

I was wondering this, also - it is quite a handy thing to know (so you know how to improve, etc...)

thank you for voicing this questin!
