    This was one fun benchmark, thanks!

    Entirely correct. Servers like this are really meant for multitasking, not highly parallel workloads. It is because of this why I don't see myself buying myself a CPU beyond 16 threads for a very long time. I don't have any workloads that are especially demanding of an entire CPU and if I feel the need to multitask, I'll just use more than 1 computer at the same time.

    Michael, thanks for bringing such a beast of a machine into the benchmarking world. I guess that means thanking Dell also.

    What I would love to see is how the HT regressions compare to Intel hardware. This assumes that the Intel hardware and AMD hardware show issues on the same tests. Right now the few HT related performance regressions really don't look that bad. Oh an power, how badly is this machine killing your electrical budget?
    AMD sent it out, not Dell.

    Never have experienced any audio issues on Fedora. And I've been using it since before it was called Fedora. Either way, what does audio have to do with benchmarks?

    What I find most interesting about this, and all such hardware test done using Linux is that invariably the distro used is Ubuntu. Michael claims that Fedora is his main workstation OS yet in every single hardware review the installed distro is Ubuntu. this holds true for other sites that do Linux hardware reviews, I can't remember the last time I saw one done that didn't use Ubuntu.

    I just think it's funny.,

    Michael when you are done with the more serious tests, can you do a test with software OpenGL (softpipe)? Just for kicks, to see what this kind of CPU power can do on 3d graphics.

    That kernel compile in 25 seconds is seriously amazing. How many kernel dev's could benefit from a machine like that... how many years of their life would be saved. That is fricking impressive.
