Not long ago we analyzed a theoretical side of NUMA memory operation in dual processor AMD Opteron platforms and compared it to traditional SMP solutions. It's time to find out how efficient this memory type is in practice — in real calculations represented by SPEC CPU2000 tests. As well as to compare it with a classic SMP-like solution, implemented with none other than AMD K8 cores. As you may have already guessed, we mean dual core Opteron processors..
