After the rest of the WUs are finished I will add some tests for linux32/64 and windows 32bit with double checking (quorum 2). If I find a way with help from primegrid I could change the validation process.

I got an answer from primegrid about the validation. Its much more complicated than I thought and need all the time testing to catch up the correct new values so credit new is the only way I can go here, unfortunately.

What I only could do is to split the complete work again into some parts to award fixed credits for them. Specific on time basing you will get then less credits in a higher n value but not so dramatic. The worst thing with credit new is the missing calculation with AVX, its faster against non AVX CPUs but get sometimes less credits or equal.

Edit:
Another idea, I will processing the first n-value and the last one, get the average time and setup fixed credits for this.

I have prepared win32 and compiled the wrapper. A standalone test was ok. For linux I will go to quorum 1 too and compare the results from windows in test.

If you have some 1000 results calculated credit new has a good value per hour so it needs some time to catch up the best value for your CPU. The other idea with fixed credits would waste too much time and I want to load all the lines at once from the sievefile.

since this is LLR, why not adopt the credit formula they use over at PG?

Its too complicated to explain, they do this after every FFT length and other things. I will split the files again in n-length and take a good fixed credit value for it.
