Superpi 980x vs Xeon E3-1280 v2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I used to have a 980x overclocked to 4.0ghz. It ran a 24 pass superpi32m with a time of 9min 37seconds. I tested my new PC with the Xeon e3-1280v2 and it was over a minute faster at 8min 29 sec.

I know the Xeon will turboboost a single core to 4.0ghz, so is it just using 1 thread and the improvement is just down to a more modern architecture?

I am using different memory with the same speed and timings except the new one is command rate 1 vs 2 on the 980 rig.

Hi cavallino,
I am very interested in what your Xeon can offer as L1/L2 and Main Memory bandwidth.

If you have AIDA/Everest it would be nice.

Thanks cavallino,
a slightly faster than i7 3930K nominal: 120GB/s L1 READ bandwidth; Main 17GB/s
I thought that XEONs were with greater throughput.
