Woodcrest vs. Opteron VT benchmarks Tags: CPUs Last response: November 18, 2006 12:32 PM in CPUs Share darkstar782 November 18, 2006 12:20:08 PM Firstly, please dont turn this into an instant flame war I agree and understand than C2D > A64 in the Desktop/gaming markets. I realise this study is commissioned by AMD. I simply thought it surprising and interesting, and wondered if others had any thoughts! Server Virtulisation benchmarks by VeriTest I know that the benchmarks seem overly focussed on IO performance, which isnt always directly related to the CPU, but I suppose this is what corporate customers do... feel free to correct me there. I dont see any glaring errors that would invalidate the results, so it seems from this that there are business applications where Opteron outperforms Woodcrest by a significant margin. Comments/Thoughts? (And before calling me an AMD fanboy, the only AMD cpu I currently own is an Athlon XP 1900+ that has a hole drilled through it and is used as a keychain, all my PCs are Intel based right now) EDIT: wrong URL More about : woodcrest opteron benchmarks apt403 November 18, 2006 12:27:52 PM um, a little off topic, but bear with me. how did you drill a hole through a proc without cracking it? 200th post btw. darkstar782 November 18, 2006 12:32:01 PM The Athlon XPs use an organic substrate and no IHS, the hole is in the corner and not through the die. Drill slowly and its pretty easy. I also have a P3 Coppermine But anyway, anyone have any thoughts on the benchmarks? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
