Dual Quad Opty SLI Build (Tyan n6650w) - Page 5

post #41 of 109
Windows Experience, 32- or 64-bit, supports up to two processors. Each processor can have a limitless number of physical or virtual cores.

Regards the overclock, is it possible that the BIOS is partially hidden to prevent messing around with it? I know on my Gigabyte, I had to hit Ctrl+F1 on the main page of the BIOS to unlock full features.

wow i am surprised no one has come in here shouting about intel being better performance.

i am impressed with that thing though its a beast! if only they made dual socket am2 mobo's i could build something like that!

That's because currently, for dual-socket and above, AMD wins. The IMCs and HyperTransport flex their muscles against the discrete NB MC and the age-old FSB on platforms like these. Harpertowns are better for raw performance but introduce them to any applications that like bandwidth and the FSBs are quickly saturated.

This is very interesting actually that you say that. I wonder if OP could run sandra for me and see what he scores in a multithreaded cpu benchmark? It would go up against a q6700 at 3.9-4.0 for comparision. For some reason I don't think amd's dual cpu quad core performance will be all that impressive, but I could be wrong. I do love the setup though and it is one hell of a workhorse for anything multithreaded.

Ironically, mentioning the intel vs. amd argument started it right up. This is my first amd system ever, so I'm al for keeping an open mind about it. Besides it doesn't matter anyway because it is what it is. Not like we can stuf some core 2 quads in there to compare the two.

Anyway, I ran the Everest CPU benches and the only systems which placed above mine were the 8 core Xeons. Actually the slower of the two only beat my system 50% of time, granted it is 300MHz below mine though. Everest CPU tests are a litle sad IMO, but I like the scores anyway.

As for windows suport of multicores, I've been reading different info, some of it from MS. Xp pro is using all the cores, I just don't thinks it is using them efficiently. It appears that the 2 processors with infinite(read some high exponent of two) cores support was added in via service pack, and was not initially supported.

Anyway, I would have pics of the finished case, but I am an idiot and epoxied the fan in the wrong direction. I have to get more epoxy before I can fix it. Also my camera eats batteries. 6 this week. Payday is tommorow, so everything should come togeher then.

looks sweet. Can't wait to see final product and some benches. Great build

You're better off with Vista because Vista is NUMA-aware. It tries to minimize remote memory access and keep the memory pools allocated to its respective processor, while XP doesn't know the difference and doesn't care which memory pool it stores its stash in.

Here's one for you, the BOINC benchmark.

Q6600 @ 3.6 running WCG for reference:

Quote:
6/29/2008 4:48:30 PM||Suspending computation - running CPU benchmarks
6/29/2008 4:49:01 PM||Benchmark results:
6/29/2008 4:49:01 PM|| Number of CPUs: 4
6/29/2008 4:49:01 PM|| 3558 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
6/29/2008 4:49:01 PM|| 8289 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU
Keep in mind those results are for an individual processor, so to compare you need to add up the comparable number of them. Say to compare here you'll have to add those four and then add your eight together and see what the total is in the end.

Code:
7/20/2008 10:41:15 AM||Suspending computation - running CPU benchmarks
7/20/2008 10:41:46 AM||Benchmark results:
7/20/2008 10:41:46 AM||   Number of CPUs: 8
7/20/2008 10:41:46 AM||   2122 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
7/20/2008 10:41:46 AM||   4632 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU
So, that would be:
Floating point = 16976
Integer = 37056

vs.

Floating point = 14323
Integer = 33156

Is that correct? If so, that isn't too bad considering the low clock speed I have. Thanks for the benchmark link. I didn't even know BOINC had that.

Skulltrail?

Or do you mean AMD Boards?
