    I was checking out SETIwatch, and I thought this was odd, My times range from 4hrs, to 5.5hrs, but the P4 is 4-6hrs, wityh a few REALLY quick times. Heres the stats on the two machinces.

    PCChips mobo, 2100+, 512mb pc133
    Intel mobo, P4 1.8 400fsb, (2) 256mb pc2100
    AMD slowest P4 Slowest
    AMD quickest P4 quikest
    BTW, I have no idea where the 20sec wu came in at, or how it happened! (amd quickest)

    any explanations for this? And why does my 2100+ with sdram keep up with heres, when shes got DDR?

    It has to do with units with data that the Seti@home believe is contaminated with false data. The program is designed to kick the unit out quickly.

    For more info., see Item 1., under Performance and credit, on the Frequently Asked Questions about SETI@home webpage.

    Well done picking that up. :thumb:

    Also I've posted somewhere else here that P4 architecture is not the best for runnin' SETI on which comes down to the better IPC and 3 FPU's that the Athlon has over the P4.
