Same code running in Spoj but giving TLE in codechef

this is the solution to prime1. Its getting accepted at spoj(2.7 seconds) but codechef is giving TLE!!! i have also tried fast output optimisation in codechef.can anyone please figure out the reason?

this is my codechef submission history i am getting TLE with JAVA but AC with C++4.3
but getting AC on SPOJ with JAVA why? code is same!

everything is same eg. constraints time limit etc. on SPOJ


I think the major reason is the cluster used by the two sites. By cluster I mean, the processor speed and number of calculations per second the online judge can perform. Spoj uses a much faster cluster “CUBE” than codechef which probably uses “PYRAMID”. I have also seen the difference in time limit for the AC solutions on spoj and codechef… AC solutions on spoj are always much faster than the AC solutions in codechef.

Can you plz tell like what is approx processing speed of codechef platform and how many cycles can it perform in one second ?

Approximately 10^8.
