[email protected] something that the Legit Reviews community used to heavily participate in back a decade or two ago. The [email protected] project focused on disease research in the areas of protein folding, computational drug design and other types of molecular dynamics. The workloads require so many computer calculations that they turned to the public for help back in 2000 and have a goal of trying to get 1 million people to concurrently participate in the program. Legit Reviews was once a Top 100 [email protected] team, but we’ve greatly slowed down our mining efforts as interest was waning and then the cryptocurrency boom happened and lured many gamers over to make a quick buck. By running [email protected] software you are supplying the program with the computer power needed to hopefully find new cures.
A stock Intel Core i9-9900K gets an estimated 143,000 points per day and after running the application for a fair bit of time we noticed that the clock speed of the CPU was 4.07 GHz. Let’s see what happens when we pause the workload and install an Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition processor into the board with the same exact workload.
It looks like the Intel Core i9-9900KS Special Edition was estimated on doing 166,000 points per day, which is about 16% more work done per day than the ‘0ld’ Intel Core i9-9900K. The reason for the [email protected] performance jump here is due to the fact that the Intel Core i9-9900KS is able to run the program at 4.50 GHz rather than 4.07 GHz according to what Task Manager was showing in Windows 10.
If you haven’t run [email protected] in many years we invite you to check it back out. The latest release shows you more details about the projects and even who is managing the project. We happened to get a workload for Project 13827, which is being managed by Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Legit Reviews is also based out of St. Louis, Missouri, so it is really neat to have a project from a student at a local university.
