I'm trying it out once I get back to Uni and have more reliable internet so I dont miss deadlines. And hope my laptop handles it.
I'll get some air soon and blow the laptop out.
Has anyone tried out the SMP client as of yet (Windows or Linux) ??

I have not...it seems to need a dual or quad core with 2 megs L2 ...my X2 has only 512...anyway I'm running two GPU's and getting some good points. At least 990 per day ... :)
Is that 1 meg per core of L2 or 2 megs per core ?

I am running the client just fine on an Intel 3.0 HT 512L2

I thought I read at the F@H SMP facs that it likes 2 megs per core to be able to complete the WU's in a decent amount of time, before the time limit expires. That may have been a minimum they thought it needed but if others run it just fine on 512 of L2 and get in under the time limit then go for it. I may try it on my X2 after I return from vacation next week. :)

Yea that is not working on the 3.0 HT It opens 4 fahcorea1.exe's and they all run at about 30%.
After 6 hours it never came off 0%.
So I went back to running 2 instances of the no-nonsense one for each core.
