in short, a Conroe at 5GHz got a 1M superPI score of 10.312 seconds.
(presumably making the conroe (18.859/10.312) * (7.1/4.99) = 2.6 times better (clock for clock) than the pent D 805. never mind whether those numbers hold up in real life, it just proves that Netburst is shit, which we all knew anyway.
now, forgive my ignorance. i run a pentium3, and all i know is that my SDRAM runs 100MHz at 2-2-2, or 133MHz at 3-3-3. and i've never played around with anything newer (at least, not inside the case)
but i'm a wholesale dealer, and i know is that ddr2-800 4-4-4-12 (corsair twinx 2*1gb) costs au$400, and timings can get as good as 2-2-2-5 (albeit on ddr1, eg corsair twinx, 2*512mb for au$270).
but what RAM, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, FBDIMM, ZRAM or otherwise, can do 4-3-3-2???
and most of the other ones on that page say similar, some 4-3-3-1.
so, to the crux of this thread.
1) are these photos doctored?
2) if not, is there a "cpu-z verified" page that says anything to back them up?
3) if the RAM does exist, what is it, where can i get it, and how much?
4) if not, what's the best "cpu-z verified" data anyone can give?
and to the AM2 vs part of this thread.
5) what's the best superPI anyone's got out of an AM2 system? (preferably "cpu-z verified", i don't care about what processor or system)
ps, i'm considering whether to buy a stopgap 805 now, just to play around with for a few months, or stick with my p3 for the time being, seeing as it does all i want anyway.
i'll be making my decision on whether to buy an AM2 or conroe sometime After August.
pps, no fanboys of either type welcome in this thread. well, you can reply, as long as it's sensible and answers what i asked. just don't act like a fanboy.
ppps, i don't mean to take away from anyone else's am2 vs conroe threads, i just want these questions answered without starting an arguement, then i'll ask a mod to lock it when i'm satisfied.
It can reach 4-4-5-14 at DDR2-1066. So yea, there's your answer.
For SuperPI performance, Pentium M/Core Duo/Core 2 Duo is in their own league. Nothing really compares clock for clock. For other apps its different. That's why its not really a good benchmark to see overall performance.
1.66GHz Core Duo is noticeably faster than Pentium D 805, which is 2.66GHz/533MHz FSB
Core 2 Duo is around 25-35% faster than Core Duo at same clock.
Second, it's because tRAS does not have much to do with memory performance. In fact, setting a tRAS of 1 should not be done, unless you really know what you're doing. tRAS should usually not be set below the sum of AS and tRCD. Why is this? Because tRAS is not a real "latency" setting. It's just the minimum amount of time that a row must remain active before it can before a new one can be activated. Increasing it below an arbitrary point means that it will never be used and have no effect on performance, except causing some things to possibly muck up.
400 views and only 5 replies, does nobody care that the biggest thing from intel in years may be bullshit?
2 things to consider.
1. In your title you say "QUICK" question...Doesn't sound like you want
a big thread to develop.
2. "pps, no fanboys of either type welcome in this thread. well, you can reply, as long as it's sensible and answers what i asked. just don't act like a fanboy". Still doesn't sound like you want many replies, as this is a
Fanboy attracting title.
