Top 40! 37th, to be exact. Still quite a few teams ahead we could pass, although the overtakes really start slowing down for us now. Many teams are picking up the optimized client, and the project admin is talking about incorporating the optimizations into the base client.

The optimizations posted about earlier in the thread are now incorporated into the official client. See the news post: http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/forum_thread.php?id=144

This means if you've not bothered to try and untangle my instructions above, you're in luck! The client should update, and you're automatically crunching 2x faster! And if you've not yet tried the project, now is a really good time to jump in.

Since science is not stagnant, Daniel has released faster optimized apps! The cut runtime in half from the previous optimized/now standard app.

You can find all sorts of flavors here, including ARM clients: https://bitbucket.org/sirzooro/pc-boinc/downloads

Again, the project admin seems totally on board with this. I imagine a bit down the road, these might be the official client. I've started running them now, and they are definitely fast!

Now I am kinda curious if I can run that client on my raspberry pi! :D

As expected, the newest optimizations have found their way into the stock client. http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/forum_thread.php?id=154

From what the poster said, I believe this is a Raspberry Pi which runs TN-Grid. http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/show_hos ... ostid=4433

It would be nice if ARM processors had more bite than bark. :mrgreen: There is is the ThunderX (48 ARM cores) and ThunderX2 (54 ARM core processor).

However, these processors are not super popular like Xeons (and Opterons to a certain extent). :icon_rolleyes: The ARM guys need to hurry up and get more competitive with the high performance x86 CPU's.

Gold badge (500,000 points) for me.

And just like WCG, Gold is not the pinnacle, but just a start in the climb. Onward and upward!
