Quad-core vs Eight-core

Posted on Saturday, March 03 2007 @ 04:16:03 CET by

The Inq did some benchmarks with a quad-core and eight-core system:
AFTER THE 32-bit run, comparing the overclocked, fine-tuned Asus single-chip quad-core Xeon (and yes, the FSB1667 still works beautifully on a three-load FSB of this dual-chip MCM), and standard-edition, HP dual quad-core workstation (too bad there aren't tunable chipsets for the dual-FSB Xeons), I got a bunch of interesting comments from readers. This led us to further testing in 64-bit Windows XP64 (not Windows Vista - I don't have it and don't trust it anyway).

In 64-bit mode, I had to be careful to rely only on the 64-bit processing benefits, not the large memory footprint stuff, since The Quad had only 2GB RAM compared to the humongous 8GB of The Oct.
