    One perk to my job is having some pretty powerful systems that come into my possession. This just came in for a certain project and figured I'd have some fun putting it through some tests and such before converting it into its real role next week.

    We'll start off with what most people would love their Windows System screen to show.

    For a little showing off... let's say this is the rough video equivalent of revving your engine for computers. :p

    Three quick runs of CB-R15 with 192 threads.

    Task manager showing all logical cores getting pegged x 3

    And, since people like seeing bits and pieces, here are a few shots of the silicon and metal guts of this box.

    4P-8160-3.jpg


    And one more shot of that pegged task manager... just for giggles. :)

    Hope you enjoyed! :)

    Zepher, can't comment on price; but I'd say that might be somewhere around street price, yes.

    auntjemima :p

    It connects the upper mezzanine tray with processors 3 & 4 to the main board; however I'm not sure what its actual purpose is and haven't looked into it yet. I'm guessing that it's related to some sort of side band or BMC interface. Nothing like this is present on the Dell R820 & R830, which uses the same processor tray design... so will be interesting to see if it's present on their forthcoming R840.

    Only a bit? My systems usually cause Skillz all sorts of... personal issues... in the pants department. :p

    OK, how about this then? The silicon army I brought to bear in the Pentathalon. :D

    Disclosure: There are a couple duplicates in there that need to be merged. For instance, only have one 4P E7-8867v3. For the most part though, the list is pretty accurate.

    Ok, that's silly picture made me laugh a lot more than it should have. :p

    BTW, I posted some numbers in cdabc123's thread per his request. ;) (Which I don't consider to be a lame ass thing to do at all; give people more things to check out!)

    Any chance of some x264/265 encoding? I'd like to see how fast this thing encodes a bluray or 4K.

    My guess is that it isn't as impressive as it should be. The x265 and x264 encoders have some serious bottlenecks for threading. What I've read says that certain portions of the encoding process depend upon prior results and have to wait for them to finish. This means you can't spin off the work into multiple threads, which means that you are actually better off with lower core counts and higher clock rates. This actually seems to be what is happening on my Threadripper, so I think the above people are correct. I get 50% or less utilization on my Threadripper when running x265 or x264. Worse, I get little to no benefit from running multiple instances. I think that memory latency and/or bandwidth is the constraint there.

    Running multiple instances of x264/x265 might do better on fastgeek's hardware, though, because I think it has some outrageously awesome memory interface.

    I did like your post because I read it the wrongly, but, now that I have seen the mistake I have to deduct some points.

    U get -560 points for saying “it cant play crysis”.

    It “cant play crisis” can only be determined by asking.

    “Can it play Crysis ?”

    That Crucial Question was neither asked nor confirmed.

    Wtf has happened to this forum that allows “Crysis playing determination questions” to NOT be asked, but be answered ???

    I am as confused as everyone else is.

    ... confused ...

    Of course it can play Crysis. Not at the moment, obviously; but slap in a video card (or three) and it'll be just fine.

    Guess you should've beat me to sharing the goods then, eh? :p

    Nothing can play crysis :)

    Also.

    Your pics.

    Somehow they remind me of the pictures we see of cpu dies, but just massively scaled up :)

    Kinda like this
    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ_R3Z-yCn1JEQ8GqFcrwlItR-nVFGP_2GNU5umc-aIRmHJ91A6.jpg
    But scaled up.
