Kentsfield is in the house! - Page 21

post #201 of 226
Thread Starter 
I saw some conroes @ 3.7GHz over at XS. I never got to test a C2D on this board, so I don't know.

Coolaler had success here with a Kentsfield.

I thought the only difference between the server class chips and desktop chips are that the server class chips go through a higher level of validation to ensure stability and better level of accuracy for number crunching and maybe possibly better silicon or at least better part of silicon wafer.... How would these factors limit the OC of the chip? It only makes more sense that it would OC better....

Congrates on the kick xxx Clovertown? / Kentsfield?

Anyways, good to see such a hardworking guy reap some cuddoos from the top of the heap... Awsome specs on this chip.......WOW!

For me, It's the early stepping of the CPU which is killing my OC. Seems like the new Xeon Conroe's they are releasing are just as good as the regular ones (no Opty v. Athlon Oc). Anyways, It is a Kentsfield, at least that's what Coolaler over at XS said, and I'm 99% sure he's right. So we can't compare Xeons to Kentsfields quite yet.

That just seems kinda slow for a SuperPi time on a quad core to me. I get low 29s on a 1m with an Opty. I just figured it would be much faster, arent the C2D's faster then that?

I run in the very low 11's and should be in the high 10s be early next week. Where did he post the superpi score and what was it?

Posted here. It's high because SuperPI isnt multithreaded

Well SuperPi depends more on ram and its timings over CPU... But either way it should be able to crunch those numbers faster then C2D I would think but I am no Intel pro.

More cores won't get you faster superpi times. check these examples on the AMD side of things:

Crash 26.500s DFI NF4 UT UD / A64 3700+ SD / @ 3140 MHz / 2-2-2-5 1T / (5:6) / Typhoon
Ihatethedukes 26.625s /DFI SLI-DR/Opteron 165 @ 3.12GHz/Centon BH-5 1.5-2-2-0-1T(7/10)/ TDX

Specs are fairly close imo (the dual core rig actually has the tighter RAM timings), and the 3700+ wins by a hair over the dual core Opteron.

The only reason why Kentsfield might perform faster is the extra cache. Otherwise, there is no difference between the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad that would result in faster superpi times.

^^I am not really concerned about the cores too much. I just though it would be a little quicker with the technology it posses (65nm).
