pi score on P4 3.6Ghz vs P-D 3.2Ghz

what's Pi score based on? Why the hell is my P-D 3.2Ghz losing 5 sec for a P4 3.6Ghz 560. All the specs are the same beside the CPU... weird? or pi is just fuked up...

P4 560 = 37 sec
P-D 940 = 42 sec

More about score 6ghz 2ghz
  1. Pentium D is dual core, each core is slower, Super Pi isn't multi-threaded as far as I know.
  2. Superpi does not take more than one thread at a time. If you want to see a 570 get owned by your chip, try dual superpi =)
  3. Didn't know they have dual pi lol, got a link I can download it?
  4. you copy the folder twice and run it once from each folder. yes, you do need two directories.
  5. AHH... lol that's the trick. But I disassemble my P4 3.6Ghz already oh well...
  6. times should be good two different speed cpus. Just wondering about the rest of your setup.
    I have a D805 @3.4ghz time is 44sec

    I got 21 sec on my AMD3700+. Beat that with your Intel :D
  8. 21 seconds my ass. My 2.9 venice and 2-2-2-5 ram gets 29 seconds.
  9. Dothan, or Yohan can both beat Athlon64's in Super PI, and are made by intel.... Conroe is gonna be master ot Super PI.

    hahah my 2,9GHz is much faster than ours!!!!

    I have got San Diego of the 3700+... You have got an OLD 3200+. That´s probably why I beat you so much...

    Or you are full of bullsh*t. You would have to run three and a half ghz to get close to a 21 second 1m pi time.

    NO I am NOT! Is there any verificationsystem so that I can show you? It really does Pi in 21 sec.
  13. Yes, I'd like to see a screenshot of the superpi time and the checksum.
  14. Sure you´ll get it! I will upload it directly when I come home from school!
  15. I don't believe you can really get 21sec lol, someone posted with a CPU of AMD X2 4800+ gets like 29sec back then. I forgot the rest of the setup but it was near top...

    yeah, he's full of crap. a 6ghz Pentium 4 might get 21 seconds, but not much else..
  17. maybe he means the first section of it
  18. Myabe under 512K lol not 1M
  19. that would make sense. but who benches with 512k?
  20. The one that wants to get a low (x) second on super pi :lol:

    ahah why don't we just all do 16?
  22. :o that's a good idea, they will be posting 0 sec and think they are doing 1M
  23. yeah i can't wait for this screenshot
  24. I personally didnt build this rig for super pi but get 35 sec
    of course I bumped er up a tad.
    21 seconds ??
    8O
    lets see
  25. 21 seconds? Requires a fast clocked CPU and uber fast RAM, but not that difficult...
    X2 3800+ @2000MHz, 1xCorsair 1 Gb 2-3-3-5 @400MHz: 27 seconds
    X2 3800+ @2400MHz, 1xCorsair 1 Gb 2-3-3-5 @480MHz: 23 seconds

    Note that this is dual core on a single threaded app, so only one core is used.

    Using a 2.6/2.8 GHz chip with dual channel RAM should allow 19s. no problem.

    Oh, the P4 can't do it? You need a good K8 or a prototype Conroe for that, then.
  26. My athlon XP @ 2.305Ghz gets 44.something

    - Realised he was full of shit, and never returns...

    :lol:
  28. Gotta agree

    haha he never posted the screenshot. odd, eh
  30. No proof... even if he did... probably photoshopped :lol:
  31. or maybe he made the same mistake I did and only took into account the first superpi iteration.

    You give him too much credit - perhaps edited in Paint?
  33. Hello guys! I am sorry for that I haven´t send you any screenshot. I will try to take one this week. So you will be pleased :)

    What mode should I run? 1M, 32M or what?

    Ill tell you where you should run. Into a wall
  35. How hard can it be to take a screenshot? After all, it only takes you 21 seconds
  36. Run the 1,576,800 million decimal places mode SuperPi special edition, just for you.

    When finished screenshot it.

    Make sure to run on all your PCs at once, for comparison purposes... and remember: Don't move the mouse, don't touch the keyboard, and don't run any other apps until it is finished.

    :roll:
  37. Sorry guys! I don´t know where I got 21s from. I was sure it was that I got last time I ran SuperPI...

    SuperPI v1.1:
    256K: 5s
    512K: 13s
    1M: 29s
    2M: 1min 13s

    But that was with AntiVirus, WindowsUpdate and some backgroundprocesse on while I did :P

    No seriously, I was wrong! Sorry!
  38. If you seriously wanted to show off your uber Pi score you would have closed Windows Update and your Anti-Virus.

    Update and AV does not shave 8 seconds off your Pi score....and just admit you didn't get 21s - that's getting into Conroe speed territory, is it not?
  39. He apologised at least. Way to man up falsterbo, kuddos.
