I have a quad core Intel baytrail tablet powered by 4 Intel Atom Z3735G cores. As this runs x86-android-linux-gnu rather than android on ARM the only projects that support it so far are
seti@home beta
The atom actually performs very well and is better than my android tv boxes I also use here.

Thanks for the update. Will be trying to plow through as many as I can before they hit the wall.

In fact I might be struggling to get through them before they timeout.

That's why you need to keep a small cache.

Eh, cache was only 0.25 / day. It's my laptop that travels with me, not connected to internet all the time so I need a buffer. At only 14 mins estimate, 20 units were downloaded for every 1 that should have been. At least I know that it's happened to everyone, not something at my end.

Has the way the units are compressed been changed ?
Previous downloads reported as taking 3 1/2 hours to run on my laptop which is correct. New units appear to be 1/10th the size and now report as taking 14 mins to run, but they still take 3 1/2 hrs to run. Obviously this has resulted in Boinc downloading more units than I require. In fact I might be struggling to get through them before they timeout.
