Benchmarks at Lan party got me a bit flustered. - Page 2

post #11 of 20
but if you look quads get at least 2000+ more points then duals do at the same speed, im saying that the quads most likely got double the CPU points in the test and thats why they beat him by 400+ points

that is the one thing i hate about 3dmark, the fact that it is more a gpu test. To me a benchmark is the entire computer...

Oh and for reference i found that performance 6.1 and i scored 1716 or 1718

edit: non SLI cause i have an intel chipset

Its not entirely like 3dmark, I have run 3dmark its pretty GPU intensive, whereas Performance Test 6.1 tests everything from GPU, to CPU, Optical drive speed, ram speeds, and HD speeds. Its an overall test and shows the performance of your complete system as opposed to just your GPU and CPU.

Im not sure, I do know that it runs a lot of tests on the cpu and rates it accordingly, it has a CPU integer math, floating point math, find prime numbers, sse/3dnow, Compression, encryption, image rotation, and string sorting. after each individual group of tests it will rate your individual component by itself and then give you a partial score towards the whole score. My cpumark score was 1651.2 with a partial score of 445.8

Nice score , my friend had around 1200 without testing his cdrom, so he probrably would have been around 1300 or 1400 if he had a cdrom in his drive, 1700 is pretty high though. Seeing the scores that high has definately enticed me to get a quad and play with it to see what the differences are. I dont know if I would really notice any differences in gaming.

you will notice a difference in gaming. Just think about it, if you use core 0 and 1 for the game and 2 and 3 for all your back ground stuff in windows. The argurement that games dont support quads doesnt hold a lot of water cosidering the OS supports a quad. True the game may not run on all four cores but the OS manages the background services on the core with the least load to balance everything

well being that my games run so smoothely I dont think I would notice any difference, all the settings are maxed out, I have no lag of any type in crysis or in UT3 so I guess If there were a game that were more demanding then those two then the quad would show a significant difference, but being that I show no performance lag, with the games I currently have I dont think the difference would be very noticeable, but I could be wrong. Being that I dont have a quad I cant say one way or another the differences . Either way I want to pick one up and clock it and have some fun with it. I plan on getting another board within a year or so so possibly just use my current rig for folding and then the quad for gaming

the beauty of it is that the q6600 are probrably the best processors on the market due to there oc'ability, lol made a word there, and there price, and the best part about it is that when the nahalem comes out the price on the q6600 will go down again if they dont discontinue it.
post #18 of 20
wow after reading this entire thread there is a Q6600 fan boy here lol. and my guess to the slightly lower score is cause of the amount of ram on a X64 system.

if you are refering to me then yes, you dont know the joy of being able to encode a movie in two minutes... and so on. But the lower score is related to the addressing the x64 os uses its been proven mutiple times with every benching program.

Lol its ok, fanboy or not, I have been looking into it and what not. The nahalem is supposed to be released this winter so by that time I may get one, if they dont discontinue it in the meantime. By that time the new Crysis game should be out as well so who knows how that would help me gaming wise . Its said that crysis2 can detect how many cores you have and divide the workload among the cores equally, also running it in 64bit will yield a 10-15% increase in performance
