Can anyone else figure out how you're supposed to use this site and compare against other machines? Or even better compare against the earlier gcc results?
On the left side in the menu there is this list of tests and a "Search Results" textfield. You can click on one of the test and get no proper feedback and then click on the "Compare Results" text that just appeared but has no indication that it is clickable. However, the search field there didn't do anything reasonable for me.
its a gaming version because its a full 16core with 12cores disabled
its also a version with double L2 cache per core and Double SSE units per core compared with an bulldozer.
and it does have 4time more L3 cache per core than the normal Bulldozer.,
Again, nothing about those differences improve gaming. Disabled cores are just basically so they can push up the clock speed for applications that scale better with it (there are a ton of older legacy apps that respond better to raw core speed) while salvaging a CPU that has a bad module. The cache makes little difference if any in gaming as well and this can be seen comparing the Athlon x4's to the phenom x4's. (SSE units are the same as one unit in the 6204 is completely disabled.). There is also the fact that workstation motherboards are poor and expensive choice for gaming boards (and limited in memory speed).
