|I'm pleased to announce the initial release of a fully (RC5-72 and OGR-P2) AltiVec-enabled build (494b) of the distributed.net client for AmigaOS 4.0 which is now available from the usual place: http://www.distributed.net/download/prerelease.php|
To be able to use the AltiVec cores, you'll obviously need a G4, and more importantly kernel 51.12 (previous kernels do not have working AltiVec support). Of course, this client will work ok on non-AltiVec cpus too, for which the usual scalar cores will be used as before.
For more information on the client, RC5-72 and OGR please visit the Distributed Amiga website and be sure to join the team.
