Thumbs up 321 LLR timings

Here are my current 321 LLR timings around 2.6M bits:

With the new LLR 3.7 I have noticed a significant speed up on some pentium4s (but not much on my 3.5GHz):

Code:
MHz        3.6.2          3.7
-------------------------------
2500       4:30          3:50
2940       3:50          3:35
Thanks Jean

I have egg on my face because it seems the timings above refer to LLR 3.6 and not LLR 3.6.2. If I had upgrade earlier I would have saved loads of time...

I now have some timings for LLR tests for 3*2^n-1 at 1 million decimal digits on an Asrock 4coreDual-Vista mainboard.

Code:

196608       Core2 Quad   2400      533Mhz Dual      4      4.172
The core2 quad does better at handling more LLRs than the PentiumD. That is running more than 1 LLR does not drastically change interation times.

Running dual channel as opposed a single stick of RAM makes little difference.

Memory speed (on this board) makes very little difference.

Clock for clock, using all cores, the core2 quad is 80% quicker per core than the PentiumD.

The quad is older type using 105 watt; whereas the Pentium is 95 watt. The latest 2.4GHz quads are 95 watt.

One of my current test range results shows that the PentiumD was crunching less than 7.6 "321" numbers per day. The core2 quad does 23.8 numbers per day. This means the quad has over 3 times the throughput

Have you tried running LLR on a single core? Could you post some results of your configurations running only one instance of LLR ?

Note the "#LLR" column. This is the number of LLRs being run. (North Americans use "#" for number.) If #LLR is "1" then 1 LLR was running and, apart from a processes from a minimal Debian with no X, no other number crunchers were running.

Edit: I might have used the "#" improperly and so I have changed the column heading to "LLRs"

OK, if "LLRs" means how many instances are running at a time then performance hit is really negligible, which is a little bit odd looking at the specs of memory subsystem.
What are the system's specs in each scenario, I mean motherboard + memory timings?
OK, I'd like to run this "benchamark" on my C2Q system. Could you post a fragment of your input file, so that we can make an apple-apple comparison?

The board is running at default FSB but with things like on-board sound switched off as this is a dedicated number cruncher (running the OS from a USB stick.) The 256Mb memory sticks are 667 DDR2 from HP I think -- nothing special. It was set to SPD -- 5-5-5-15? Look at the "RAM" column to see where I ran it in either dual channel or with a single stick, and where I dropped it down to 533MHz.

Yes please! The two-line file is attached.

Ps. the iteration times given are the averages for the various number of LLRs running.

OK, here are the timings for my system C2Q @3186, RAM@1065:
  • 1xLLR = 2.859
  • 2xLLR = 2.922
  • 3xLLR = 2.925
  • 4xLLR = 2.935

(2.935*3186)/(4.153*2400) is about 0.938. I am guessing it is because of your superior hardware and higher clocked RAM that you get an extra 6.2% CPU-clock for CPU-clock. If this is error free, using all four cores, you could do a current "321" test in 2 and 3/4 hours per core or, equivalently, in total, 34.6 tests per day However, from experience and from what others say, I do not encourage overclocking.
