Dear all,

After testing them as the sixtracktest app, we have just pushed out executables to the sixtrack app. For the moment, we have exes only targeted for the main OSs, i.e. Windows, Linux, and the brand new one for MacOS. We are still finalising the definition of the plan classes with the sixtracktest app for targeting Android, freeBSD, and Arm CPUs - e.g. see

Thanks a lot for your contribution and ... happy crunching!
Alessio, for the sixtrack team

Although my hosts are both running linux 64bit and both are AVX capable I got the following app:
sixtrack_lin32_4630_sse2.linux

Same after a project reset.

Hosts:
10486310
10486393

Thanks for pointing this out. This has happened to me (linux mainly) and to another person in the sixtrack team (mac).
Looking at bigger numbers, out of 600k tasks crunched so far, the avx contribution is ~10% for each platform.

It's not only AVX, it's also 32bit vs. 64bit.

That happens to me as well, but the statistics show that ~60% (or more) results are produced with 64bit version

Aren't you mixing-up OS and architecture here? You can run (a form of) Windows on ARM, as well as Linux, Android and FreeBSD. IOS -which is an Apple OS- also runs on ARM, as any iPad user should know.
