I'm quite impressed with the result of this real-life application test.

And I didn't see any benchmarks, just the inside of a rackmount?

yeah man, I could see the AthlonMP is rocking the dual Xeon, wow! nice score on serious sam woof, woof! and it's also stable, cool and very quite too!

LOL! and the Pee4 did not win any test, not even quake.

Out of many tests performed in the benchmark, the Athlons won just a couple. To sum up the benchmarks in the reviewers own words: "I'll end with this. I've got a Dual Athlon system at home, which I'm very happy with. If I hadn't bought this system, I would take the Dual Xeons home in a second, they're THAT good. Kudos to Intel and Supermicro for making a top performing and stable multiprocessing solution."


It would seem to me the Xeons won overall. Your subject line is in err.

Like I said, it won on "REAL-LIFE" application test, if you follow the link in my post you'll see that for running their forum database, the dual Athlon 1.2Ghz solution came first, before the dual 1.7Ghz Xeon. I dont see the err. here!

But unfortunatly, I didn't saw anywhere how better it was.

1) I believe BrainStorm was posting in regards to the AnandTech benchmark, not the GamePC benchmark. kha just happened to bring up the other one.

2) In the GamePC benchmark, there's a bit of a discrepancy. For one, the Xeons are only winning the synthetic Sandra benchmarks (whoops, synthetic), the half-synthetic SYSmark (he even notes it's not a good real-world SMP scenario), and the Quake benchmarks (OK, Q2 isn't SMP-enabled, but score one or two anyways. Inexplicable--some esoteric bit of Abrash's code hanging around in the engine?)

Out of the true real-world benchmarks, the dual Xeons either win by a hair or get thoroughly slammed. Therein lies the biggest discrepancy...

I dont like the benchmark from the Gamepc and anadtech.I am still waiting for good benchmark with Dual xeon and dual mp with all new driver and bios...Win 2k.

I really don't understand you. I just provided 1 of benchmark that <b>Fatburger</b> asked for. Are you always being <font color=red>childish</font color=red> like this?
BTW, do you use your Dual system just for playing games???
And here is another one from <b><A HREF="http://www.anandtech.com/chipsets/showdoc.html?i=1483&p..." target="_new">Anandtech</A></b>
