Default Recommended versions Prime95

I've been away from Prime95 for a while. Now I'd like to run it on an eMachines with a 3.0 GHz Pentium 4, Windows XP Home SP2.

The Web site points to version 24.14, which I have used before.

The forums and the ftp site show different versions of v25. These may not be exactly official, but I am sure that they are pretty good!

Which version should I use for fastest performance on this PC?
And if you recommend version 25, do I get it from the ftp site?

Thanks!

Version 25 has no performance improvements. Casual users should stick with version 24.

Welcome back!

In v25, there's improvements for file management for multi-core users though. No need to have 4 copies of P95 in separate folders. That's incentive enough for some people to want to switch.

i have four copies of v24.14 running on a quad core; what would be the best method to switch over to a single copy of v25 or whatever the latest is?

thanks,

mark

done!

i let the individual threads expire, one by one. unreserved what was left.

restarted with v25.6

had to restart once before it would talk to the server, but all is well.
