We are currently running mathematica on a Silicon Graphics Ingigo 2 machine with a 200Mhz processor and 256Mb Ram. The calculations involve fitting of gaussians to data set, and take two long at present (2h30min for each data set requiring 16 * 8 fits). Does anybody know what machines may bring the best speed for that kind of computations? The benchmark sites available in the net only contain data for relatively slow machines (Dec Alphas, Mac, Pentiums). We were thinking of getting an Origin 2000, but even these machines only get really fast with multiple processors (not supported by mathematica). So if anybody has a really fast machine, let me know! -- ________________________________________________________ Christian Keysers School of Psychology Univ. of St Andrews Scotland KY16 9JU UK Tel.: +44.1334.462083 or 463045 Fax.: +44.1334.463042 Email: ck6 at st-and.ac.uk ________________________________________________________
