Using about half the power of yours my Opteron scored 150 higher on the CPU test. Oh darn... so much for spanking.

Mine is about 100 points above Nasgul's score.
Anyways, I don't see how everyone gets kicks out of comparing new tech to old tech for the sake of bragging.

Thanks for bringing that up. There's no point in comparing the 4x4 platform to a C2Q platform then because the FX's used in 4x4 ARE OLD TECH. VERY old tech.

Again, this is the 2nd time I'm going to say: "When you have a clue" of what you're saying then say it. X2 and Opt are different, ans using half the power? What? you think that an overclocked CPU consumes the same amount of power that it does at the stock speed? Show me where it says that a 3.0ghz cpu runs at half the power of that of a 4.50ghz? That I have to see.

And BTW, I got my 4.51ghz running at 3.18ghz at idle. Let's see your Opt running at 3.0ghz with cool n quiet running at the same time. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y21...l/PD945OCd.png

Don't forget you have to count for the drives, fans, any lights, ect as well and you don't want to have "just enough" power......and that is at stock, if you plan to overclock, you need more power. a 4x4 rig with those video cards that wants to overclock and has more than 1 hard drive and 1 optical drive and fans will actually need a 1KW......

Actually, he tries reading the thread and evidence and answers already provided........it's a unique concept to be sure, but one that works well.

And the two 570SLI chipsets that make up the 680a take about 40W+ each, so that adds 80W to the power consumtion, plus another 40W for the rest of the motherboard components, so that adds up to 370W so far. Thats just the CPU and the motherboard alone. Add another 30W for the two CPU fans, the two PWM fans and the chipset fan. So thats 400W. Then tack on about 50W for the RAM modules. 450W so far. Then you need to add about 40W for the graphics card (at idle, much more at full load) plus another 40W for hard drives, DVD drives and case fans. Theres your 530W. Happy?

This is not a great inovation.
It's actually(i think) two X2's processors in the same board.
You could do that before with opterons......

FX-74
4 Sticks DDR2
8800GTX
4 Fans (2 CPU / 2 Case)
High End Motherboard
2 SATA HDDs
2 DVD Burners

608 Watts (The CPU, RAM, and motherboard cost $1599)



QX6700
2 Sticks DDR2
8800GTX
3 Fans (1 CPU / 2 Case)
High End Motherboard
2 SATA HDDs
2 DVD Burners

467 Watts (The CPU, RAM, and motherboard cost $1505)


That is the theoretical power consumption... Which shows the FX system using about 30% more power than the QX6700 system.

An Anandtech test, using different components shows similar results:



In their results, the FX system uses 73% more power than the QX6700. However, even more surprising, the QX6700 has a Performance per Watt rating that is 86% higher than the FX system.

If something has a 86% higher Performance per Watt rating and cost $94 less, there should be no discussion.

This is finished.
