Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-05-01
tuxfusion: hey , i was playing with pts , and i was wondering, is there no comparison online like geekbench does where i can see that cpu gets this score and mine gets this , from what i understand i have to open every single test report online and compare myself, wouldn't that be the whole case of benchmarking ?
Milyardo: I'm having trouble unstanding you tuxfusion but there is Phoronix Global
Milyardo: that allows you to compare benchmarks
tuxfusion: okay il try again
tuxfusion: i have an OCed E4400 cpu ill run som PI benchmark with it , then i'd like to "who has the greatest "-manlike comparison and see other E4400 cpu that run this test and see where i land with my score
tuxfusion: just an example
Milyardo: Type E4400 into the processor section
Milyardo: and search for other Super-pi benchmarks
Milyardo: Doesn't look like too many other people have E4400's though
tuxfusion: yes done thx for the tip however somethings i guess
tuxfusion: or maybe a real lack of it
tuxfusion: one still has to open every singel test the search comes up with no comparison imho
tuxfusion: i was hoping for soemthing like this , grouped by hardware , grouped by test : http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/chart/126409
rm: anyone has a Phenom II?
evocallaghan: rm:What can I do for you buddy?
rm: is it true that Phenom II apply C'n'Q only to all cores at once?
evocallaghan: No, I don't believe that is true
evocallaghan: However, I am not sure
evocallaghan: I turn it off as my box is under constant load
rm: do you run GNU/Linux?
evocallaghan: Solaris kernel
rm: I see
rm: well I just read ( http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3492&p=6 ) that CnQ got changed to accomodate for Windows Vista, of all things
rm: and changed to the worse, IMO
evocallaghan: Well the chip *jets* under the Solaris kernel
rm: also that's kinda unbelievable, so I would like to confirm that with someone who has the CPU
evocallaghan: Well, all I can say is that it jets compared to a Xeon 5500 amazingly
rm: good to know :)
evocallaghan: So, I don't really care that much as the performance outwits the power usage
rm: I use a Phenom 9750 now
evocallaghan: bash-3.2# uptime
evocallaghan: 3:31pm up 60 day(s), 9:37, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
evocallaghan: bash-3.2# prtdiag | grep AMD
evocallaghan: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 810 Processor AM3
redeeman: lol @ that cnq thing
evocallaghan: is amazed how crap Intel's product is after all the FUD they came out with
rm: I hate the predjustice that exists against AMD CPUs use in servers
rm: and in general
rm: some businesses still purchase only Intel based machines
evocallaghan: Asus M4A79T Delux
evocallaghan: Seems to be a dead soild board to go with it if you wanted to know
evocallaghan: and i normally buy expensive Tyan kit so if i'm impressed with 'extream oc' crap then it normally is good :)
bkero: bought an intel processor for the first time in his life today.
wirechief: better support than ATI
