pulled it down earlier this afternoon, think i got in relatively early as the downloads seem to be going horribly now (was going to attempt to pull the 32bit version as well, but gave up and went to play with this copy)


running smoothly, but still a bit of a resource hog.  pulls near 900mb of memory just idling.  still in beta, so i'll forgive the lack of drivers to make the scrolly on the laptop work, but other then that, everything picked up well out of the box.  we'll see how this goes...time to go find boinc...

Benchmarks should be interesting to see...

That memory load is a bit lighter than my Vista install, but then I have a few "extras" running as well. (1.2gb after bootup is complete)

think there was stuff sitting in the background still earlier, or memory leak somewhere... Thinking  a reboot put it in the 600s.


started up boinc:
Windows 7 x64, BOINC 6.4.5
1887 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
6324 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU


looks up stats in old post at bbt



vs:
XP Pro, BOINC 5.10.30
1909 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
4459 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU


laptop - intel T7250 (2ghz)

Looking at the benchmarks again..  I bet with a bit of service tweaking it could really beat out XP.
As is, they're slightly higher than my Vista rig, And you're running this on a slower CPU..  Thinking
