Just wanted to post a new topic up to show what I currently use to Crunch primarily now.
Intel i5 Clarkdale 650 3.20 Ghz (4/4 threads when not using 0-2/4 threads when actively in use)
Secondary PC 2/4 threads constant
Intel i3 3.33 Ghz
Samsung Note 10.1 2/4 cores (one WU per core)
I have tested running 3/4 and 4/4 cores and it seems to not be able to complete them fast enough.
I've yet to find a good wealth of detail on them regarding crunching. I would assume the chip is just getting too hot and it slows itself down as a result, or the OS uses 1.x cores to run normal things.
All in all it donates a significant chunk of my progress.
Looking to build a quad core maybe six core machine near the end of the year. Perhaps if I can clone my hard drive onto a new one, and use this as a backup. Ill still want to keep it humming for all the WU's I have alot of ground to cover to get back into the top 10 :3
