Performance:

For comparing the performance of the Intel Blackford and Greencreek Chipsets, as well as the Tyan Tempest series, we had run the i5000VF and i5000VS up against the i5000XL. Below is the rundown of major hardware and software components used during testing.

Hardware Components
Processor: 2 x Intel Xeon 5150 (2.66GHz)
Motherboard: Tyan Tempest i5000XL
Tyan Tempest i5000VF
Tyan Tempest i5000VS
Memory: 4 x 512MB Kingston DDR2-533 FB-DIMM
Hard Drives: Western Digital 160GB SATA2
Optical Drives: Lite-On 16x DVD-ROM
Cooling: Thermaltake ITBU CL-P0303
Power Supply: SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF 750W
Software Components
Operating System: Fedora Core 5
Linux Kernel: 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 SMP (x86_64)
GCC: 4.1.0
X.Org: 7.0.0

When it came to the Linux compatibility matter, both motherboards had worked fine under Fedora Core 5 when using the 2.6.17 kernel. The only issue with the i5000VF was the failure of sensors-detect being unable to detect the onboard sensors. Using LM_Sensors v2.9.2 on the i5000VS, the lm85-i2c-0-2e module was loaded and had reported the various voltages, fan speeds, and temperatures. Some of the reported values were noticeably incorrect, but for the most part, it had worked fine with the S5372. The benchmarks used were Gzip Compression, LAME Compilation, LAME Encoding, and FreeBench.
