Well, if you where wondering what to purchase when Intel's Conroe chip is released, have a read of this.... The first CPU being released on with the new Conroe core is the server product 'Woodcrest', aka Xeon 5100. Official benchmarks for this CPU have appeared on the net and they make for interesting reading tbh. The following results are direct from www.tpc.org...

Dual CPU Intel Conroe system (HP ML370 G5) scores 169,360 TPM

Dual CPU AMD Opteron 285 (aka Athlon FX60) (HP DL385) scores 113,628 TPM

So there you have it folks, in an official benchmark that’s recognised by the industry to be 100% pukka, the Conroe is 49% faster than the fastest currently available AMD CPU!!!!!

Anyone out there still thinking of purchasing an AMD CPU any time soon...

Are you an Idiot? "Woodcrest", aka Xeon 5100 This Is'nt Conroe. Woodcrest is "server " and Conroe is "desktop" and Memrom is "Mobile"
Their Different Products. And an Opteron 285 is'nt a FX-60 their chips have been manufactured differently for diffrent porpuses With same Core and Arctectures. God get your Woodcrest and Conroe facts straight. OMG! bump this post it's completely stating false information from "jamesgoddard"s part atleast and it's just Intel fan boy ignorance
May 24, 2006 12:00:57 PM

Troll. :roll: There are too many unknown factors like mem timings northbridge to cpu response time etc etc.

OMG!!! Another post without adequate research. The 2xx series of opterons are for dual processing therefore requiring a server type mobo requiring ECC Regestered modules being slower than good low latency DDR Ram that the FX60 uses.

The Hyundai Sonata comes with a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty whereas the Volkswagen Golf only comes with a 4 year/48,000 mile warranty.

What does this have to do with the subject of this thread? Absolutely nothing. Why? Because this is another flame starting BS thread.

I know let's compare apples to oranges...or how about cats and dogs...maybe even smooth or chunky peanut butter...

huh what are you on... I post a hard fact base comparison of a 3GHz Conroe and an AMD FX60 and you all go bonkers! OK I admit memory etc may have some effect on the result, but not 49%... And if anything the Intel CPU is more castrated byt he memory it is using by being based on a super high latency FB DIMM system....

Seriously, take a look at the System Availability : 11/22/06 and the cost : 469,122 US $, it's easy to find a cheaper four way DC Opteron system that outperforms this two way DC Woodcrest such as the HP ProLiant DL585-G1/2.6GHz or the HP ProLiant DL585-G1/2.2GHz, on top of that, both those systems are available NOW, not 6 months down the road...

So yeah, good find but the performance/price is'nt there, that's a big factor when blowing almost half a million in hardware.

Spoke to my HP reseller and he said I can have one delivered at the start of July, so the release date is wrong. As to the price, whenever they do the TPM benchmarks they go silly on disk IO thus making sure it is not a bottleneck, the end result is near pure CPU performance, so don't read anything into the price.

He was merely stating that the first post is inaccurate with the subject of his post.
May 24, 2006 1:01:38 PM

With all the "Conroe beats AM2" and "Intel vs. AMD" threads there are out, I don't blame YO_KID37 for telling him that he STILL got it wrong.

No offence but even if he didn't read them there has been so many articles out as well. Somewhere he must have read at least one of them...

Well, should be interesting. Intel has a good processor finally for the server market.... but still a shared FSB. So it is good in some implementations.... and sub par in others.... maybe next year they will ahve fixed the problem with that.... but next year I wonder what AMD will answer with....

If they can't get the release date right and go spending three time as much on HDDs as the actual cost of the machine itself, why would the benchmarks and performance/price be an accurate representation of the CPU processing power under a standard use (what PCs and workstations are used for 99% of the time) ? Seems to me that they're benching ridiculously expensive storage systems here, not CPUs.

So, what you're saying boils down to : "Hey ! Look how fast this Woodcrest is when you spend 350K on 22 Petabytes worth of storage to run a test that simulate a workload that only an infinestimal fraction of computers will ever see", we're light years away from real world performance under typical loads and HDD configurations.

Regardless, I'm more impressed with the storage arrays here, it's obvious that the CPU/MEM/Mobo are not the focus as far as this test is concerned.

So just whip out the lotion and leave us to our SLOW AMD chips. Everyone knows that Woodcrest may help in 1 and 2 way, but AMD still owns 4-8way TPC-H. MAybe you should look at the Netburst Xeon vs. Opteron in Apache and MySQL. Opteron won by 4X in alot of cases so I'll wait for all the server benchmarks before I applaud Intel.

In some cases it takes 4 Xeons to beat 2 Opterons. I hope Intel makes it interesting but you are one of Otellinis girlfriends the way you talk.

Read this and tell me if they really caught up.

TPC-H isn't that important, you can tell from the limited number of submissions. TPC-C is more important, and with Woodcrest, Intel-based systems will own 2S to go along with the lead that current Xeon MPs already have from 4S-16S.

I finally went to tpc.org - you screwed up the url BTW. And it says that Woodcrest only wins at 100GB databases. The regular Xeon is barely winning at 300GB 8Way. I guess we'll see soon what the DDR2 can do for Opteron. Servers love bandwidth.

The HP ML570 is a Netburst Xeon based platform. There aren't any Woodcrest scores for TPC-H, the OP was referring to TPC-C.

Intel don't want woodcrest in more than 4 ways server.

See the HP Superdome results, Itanium is the way to go in big database.

If you check the comprehensive reviews at Toms and Anand you will see that The FX62 does scale with increased bandwidth. It doesn't matter if the chip is "starved" it matters what kind of bandwidth the application can generate a need for. You can easily see that the faster RAM (higher BW) does get a nice increase over lower speed.

Damn it people.

TPC-C benefits from
MORE HDD
MORE RAM
OPTIMIZATIONS
OS DIFFERENCES

You can make systems that use SAME CPUs have 50%+ differences.

QFT !

The dependance of this benchmark on storage systems is quite obvious, 15 to 20 Petabytes (400+ SCSI HDDs and countless RAID Controllers) worth half a million dollars, hard to see how TMPs can relate to real world use.
May 26, 2006 5:00:15 AM

I wouldn't even have that much money if I sold everything i own.

Even if i have that kind of cash i would certainly not buy a system like that!!!!!!

Maybe a BMW and a nice house but spend it all on a system like that?!?!?!
To think, there was a post of a guy that wants to build a #12 000 rig and everyone told him he's crazy. So spending almost half a million dollars is insane!!!
I'm with you all the way man. No way this relates to a real world scenario.

May 26, 2006 5:54:11 AM

Sorry, my bad, didn't read my previous post before i replied. Too sleepy to read everything again.

Basically i was just trying to say that i don't see anyone(sane) that will spend that much (even on a server) just to let the cpu run at max speed. It's just not how people go about buying a pc/server in the real world.
May 26, 2006 6:11:41 AM

Even thought you were talking about Conroe, you are still right, in most cases. There are some very expensive servers which are sold in the world. But most don't spend that kind of money. I was just pointing out it was about Woodcrest and Opteron more than anything else. It's cool man.... no probs.
May 26, 2006 6:25:40 AM

Thanx for understanding, don't want to start a fight with anyone.
I'll try to be more specific and less lazy (reading) in the future.

I think you will find that this is the benchmark fraud perpetrated by Intel, allegedly. If you read the "Full Disclosure Report", you will see that the AMD system was running 32bit OS and 32bit SQL!! The Intel system, by their own admission, was running 64bit OS and 64 bit SQL!! You can go to the Intel site and see that they have now AMENDED their disclosure to show the true configuration of the AMD system. You should also note that the Intel system had 64GB of RAM versus 32GB for the AMD system!!

Dual CPU Intel Conroe system (HP ML370 G5) scores 169,360 TPM

Dual CPU AMD Opteron 285 (aka Athlon FX60) (HP DL385) scores 113,628 TPM

So there you have it folks, in an official benchmark that’s recognised by the industry to be 100% pukka, the Conroe is 49% faster than the fastest currently available AMD CPU!!!!!

Anyone out there still thinking of purchasing an AMD CPU any time soon...


I think you will find that this is the benchmark fraud perpetrated by Intel, allegedly. If you read the "Full Disclosure Report", you will see that the AMD system was running 32bit OS and 32bit SQL!! The Intel system, by their own admission, was running 64bit OS and 64 bit SQL!! You can go to the Intel site and see that they have now AMENDED their disclosure to show the true configuration of the AMD system. You should also note that the Intel system had 64GB of RAM versus 32GB for the AMD system!!
In flagrante delicto!!!

Shame on you Intel! :twisted: You've truly sunk lower than *that B@stard Iago(from Othello)

yea i love stuff that isnt out... seriously if your going to hate on a fan boy dont be one either and stop grabbing at straws AMD is about to get its ass kicked in the next few months untill they come out with a CPU to actually do battle with Conroe

While im not a fan boy (or at least i dont declare sides) I go for the best and fastest hardware, at this point yes AMD 64 is the best however if Conroe benchmarks are correct then AMD is in for an ass kicking. The AM2 is what i think a waste of money you get an extra what 10-15frames (sometimes even lower) and you have to go out and buy all new hardware?

However i do think that this whole topic is just proof that fanboys are retarded, because of the fact he doesnt even use Conroe benchmarks he uses Woodcrest a server version.

Also i see that AMD and Intel pulling a ATI Nvidia; true ones better now but probally in the next few years i dont think its going to matter and the diffrence in the hardware is only going to be 1-5frames if that.
