I recall reading that close to 10 years ago when I first started BOINC. The problem is, BOINC likes to run the benchmarks right at reboot when it's been awhile. I'll have to remember to run them again when rebooting for Windows updates etc. Thanks again for the reminder! I like badges, and for those I need credit ;)

Re-ran the benchmark and floating point value went up by over 50%! Last time I rebooted the i3 was for a kernel update and may explain the low value if benchmarks were running at the same time. Thanks for pointing that out.

Thanks for the reply, Eric. I think I'll manually request BOINC to run the CPU benchmarks again and see if anything changes and report back.

Recently started crunching NumberFields again on a few hosts and have noticed a credit oddity:

On a 10+ year old Celeron900 Win 7 64bit laptop:
workunit 17395431--- 13661.69sec CPU--- 300.88 credits (79/hr)
17395394--- 14357.49sec CPU--- 312.60 credits (78/hr)

Core i3 2120 desktop Linux Mint 18.1 64bit (HT on):
workunit 17370121--- 9421.11sec CPU--- 140.45 credits (54/hr)
17370149--- 9481.86sec CPU--- 141.44 credits (54/hr)

Never before have I seen the old laptop outperform the i3 on a credit per hour basis. Had these (cr/hr) numbers been reversed, I would have thought nothing of it if I had even noticed.

Is this credit difference between the 2 operating systems normal?
