lithium726 -- compared to mikeblas' Dual 1GHz P3 results you're at:


Code:
Dhrystone 2.1:	5832 kDhryst ( 139.2% )
Whetstone:	1436 MFLOPS (100.8% )
8 Queens:	9871 pps (138.7% )
Matrix Ops:	87977 k ops (139.9% )
Integer:	201284 k ops (139.6% )
Floating:	21916 k ops (152.2% )
Bandwidth:	224083 kB/sec (115.1% )

I finally have some sort of base line score calculation worked in there, and it helps score a system with a quick glance. (the formatting is a pita to work with, however)

Cheers & enjoy.


Edit: Link to the database now that we're on page 5 -- http://files.timaxe.com/projects/clibench/

after a quick trip to the bios, im back with some 1.6ghz scores (152x10.5) :)

Code:
 			 	this	 other 		  relative
 			 	computer computer	performance
      
 Dhrystone 2.1			 6703	 11682 kDhryst. 57 percent
 Whetstone			 1652	 2522 MFLOPS	 66 percent
 Eight queens problem		11341	 17665 pps	 64 percent
 Matrix operations		 98838	 148309 k ops	 67 percent
 Number crunch			 231299 370078 k ops	 63 percent
 Floating point			 25171	 39423 k ops	 64 percent
 Memory throughput		 254870	603339 kB/sec	42 percent

quite a large jump, if i do say so myself... unfortunatly, thats as high as i can take htem since hte board has no working PCI locks and the HDD likes to corrupt, they they will run (the processors and the memory) at 166x10.5

lithium726 - Sorry it took so long to add your overclocked run. Looks to have improved a bit. Supprisingly you're ahead of a few 2.2GHz P4 Xeons with your 1.6GHz P3-s for some of the tests. Must be the old code with your workhorse processors ;)


BTW, I found out that CliBench has a new 0.7.17 version. It seems like the only thing that changed between this and the 0.7.16 that we're benchmarking is the HDD access test. Fortunately we're only testing the CPU. I've retested the tests with the new version and the numbers match up.

So 0.7.17 scores are the same as 0.7.16 scores for our purposes. Anymore Dual Core systems people want to show off? :D

Re-ran the test at 2806 but performance increase is not huge, this is mainly because I have to have looser timings at higher speeds. Dual core outperforms opterons easy when at the same speed (mainly due to tight ram timings/high ram speeds). I guess it's time to go dual core phase changed :)

Thanks for contributing, SilverBack. Hopefully we'll get more 4200+ (and the other X2 processors) results so we aren't scratching our heads over the impact having the extra L2 has. (ie, compared to Angry_Game's Overclocked 4400+)

Rock stable speeds as you can see. This is without any OS tweaks or anything like that. I will give an update once I get my ballstix and can run some 1:1 action to fix my memory score :)

Tony420, can you tell us the motherboard used?


I overlooked memory dividers and the HT link that people use a lot in Athlon64 systems (and now X2 systems). It isn't as cut and clean as with the older systems where it was 1:1 or bust. Could everyone from now on include the memory divider used if it isn't 1:1? I'm going to add a new field for the ratio and it'll default to 1:1... Cheers.

Im using a DFI NF4 SLI-DR. Pretty soon I will be putting in 1:1 results(assuming my ballistix can do atleast 273). The ratio is 150(CPU/15)

haha Tony420 wowed us over at DFI-Street with that 3Ghz overclock. I tried and tried and tried to get both prime95's stable @ 2750Mhz and never could (his subzero cooling helps a lot!)

got a test water rig up now and I am going to give it another go. I keep checking this thread, and I have it linked over at DFI-Street because of all the new X2 processors being purchased to overclock on our DFI boards...I think this thread is the best test/compare bench for dual cpu's (or multiple cpu's really) on the net. You've done a good job Tim. Hopefully more Streeters will come this way now that X2's are becoming really popular.

good idea Tim, but from what I can see, the only score that really gets affected by this is the memory bandwidth, and you are right, it isn't like the 'old days' when CPC disabled or a memory divider used = horrendous penalties sometimes.

It is still good to differentiate between dividers, but the dividers actually (FINALLY) help guys get some very impressive cpu clocks (which show little difference in scores on a divider vs 1:1 other than memory bandwidth)

I just received a test through email (not too uncommon) on one of the Intel Xeon processors with 2MB of L2 cache. It really took a huge bite into the Matrix Operations test, which is largely an L2 cache test - I was suprised. :eek:

I'm wondering if I could get a stock-clocked 4400+ test so I can make a comparison with the stock-clocked 4200+ test on Matrix Operations. I want to see what the cache difference (1MB vs 512kb) does on the Athlon64 platform for this benchmark. (So far that test improves a lot with clockspeed, making comparison impossible between these 2 processors)

Also if anyone has an exotic x86 compatible CPU with a lot of L2, I'd love to see it. That Xeon system with 2MB of L2 really caught me by suprise with it's score. (It now ranks 1st in 2-CPU systems @ 592,587 k ops (942.4% over a Dual CPU 1GHz P3 ))



BTW Moog, nice to see you again.

With the 4x512 vs the 2x512 your system came up a bit in the rankings. What I'm trying to figure out is why your 1.6GHz 242 processors with 1MB of L2 is suddenly right next to Santos L. Halper's 2.0GHz 246 (also 1MB of L2) processors. It is ahead of the 512KB 4200+ X2 at this point also, while before it was behind by a bit... Did anything other than the amount of RAM in your system change? I'm trying to figure this out, haha...

I want to figure out why my Whetstone numbers seem abnormally low.

It was mentioned earlier, but the numbers produced by this benchmark in Whetstone & Dhrystone are going to be lower, and cannot be compared to other benchmarks such as SiSandra.

The benchmark looks like it is pretty tight & clean, but mikeblas had a look at the code and discovered it was very messy! :eek:

Fortunately the saving-grace of benchmarks is that everyone runs the same thing...


This was a fairly popular AMD vs Intel comparison benchmark until the Pentium 3 / Athlon era of computing, and was used for a while in AthlonXP/AthlonMP (and less commonly Pentium 4) benchmarks, but I couldn't figure out for sure why everyone stopped using it & what replaced it...

All I know for sure about today's multi-processor benchmarks is people generally try to include some video/audio encoding for benchmarks which is somewhat more real-world than this...but I couldn't afford to host a 100MB wav/avi file to encode... Other than that there really aren't any multi-processor benchmarks out there... :(

the fact that we are all running the same benchmark is a good comparison. The numbers might be low and the code might be messy, but as Tim says, we are all running the same bench so it is a good apples to apples comparison (tho it might be like Granny Smith apples vs Rome apples, but its still apples lol)


Tim I'll run the 4400+ benchmark @ stock speeds for you. I have the DFI NF4-DAGF running 2 instances of Folding@Home with it right now at stock speeds. Give me a day or two to get back around to it (the big wheel of test benches haha) and I'll run it for you again.

BTW Moog, nice to see you again.

With the 4x512 vs the 2x512 your system came up a bit in the rankings. What I'm trying to figure out is why your 1.6GHz 242 processors with 1MB of L2 is suddenly right next to Santos L. Halper's 2.0GHz 246 (also 1MB of L2) processors. It is ahead of the 512KB 4200+ X2 at this point also, while before it was behind by a bit... Did anything other than the amount of RAM in your system change? I'm trying to figure this out, haha...

I'm not sure why that's happening. Nothing's changed except the memory.

I have noticed that restarting the program tends to give higher results and that scores will drop with each successive run.

This is after 3 or 4 successive runs:
Code:
                                this      other              relative

Anyone notice a problem with the matrix test? A lot of the time I will get 30K and my scores suck, then all a sudden it gives me 49K or whatever I get :confused:

It was mentioned earlier, but the numbers produced by this benchmark in Whetstone & Dhrystone are going to be lower, and cannot be compared to other benchmarks such as SiSandra.

I meant that my Whetstone numbers seem abnormally low compared to similarly clocked X2 systems.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a multi-threaded transcoder on windows? I'm using transcode on linux right now, and it uses 2 cpus (albeit not very effectively). I'd like to throw together a video encoding benchmark.

So far my suggestions for media are the WMV HD gallery and the the Quicktime HD gallery. Any others? More specifically, the "nasa space shuttle" clip is only 45mb, and has some good "action scenes". I'd probably do one encoding of it to mpeg4, and one to h.263 or 264.

Any input or "Start another thread, jerk" is welcome ;)

This is with 260x10 and a 5/6 memory divider, making the memory run @ 216.7 Mhz instead of 250 Mhz in the 250x10 setting. Doesn't seem to hurt much if at all. Just like Angry always says over at the DFI boards :D

All I can suggest is to try the test again. Exit and try again and again if needed. Sometimes the numbers are inconsistant, and you may have just been unlucky. I'll update your score to reflect what we find.

Because there is no good reason for it being so low.



Also, thanks Angry_games for the stock 4400+ benchmark. The extra L2 cache of the 4400+ vs the 4200+ only improved the Matrix Ops test. The other tests are close enough to be the same due to testing erros/inconsistancies (which we seem to find a lot of these days, lol). So while more L2 helps in some things, this benchmark isn't one of them (unless you're trying to dominate the Matrix Ops test like icemochalatte's system) :)

I'd recommend something from Open-Video.org. No copyright issues to worry about, and you can find the files in nearly any format. Then again it would throw their file popularity rankings off and people would wonder why some long boring looking video has been downloaded 5,000+ times and is ranked #1, etc...


BTW, for Windows, Windows Media Encoder is alright. Gives all sorts of stats after it is complete, and while it is working.

There is also TMPGEnc, but that is a discontinued and now unsupported product. It is now free, however.


Anyways if you want to get another video-processing benchmark thread going (woah, unintended pun there in the multiprocessing forum!), go for it.

But one thing you need to be aware of is that such a benchmark includes the disk subsystem and doesn't isolate the CPU, which makes it more real world, but could leave people too poor to upgrade their disks (*cough*me*cough*) with scores below what their processors could possibly deliver. Sounds like a fun idea though, and even single CPU people could possibly join in...though it might give people the wrong reason to buy into MultiCPU (kind of like how everyone wants to game with their X2 processors). :)

well i sold off my rig before i found this thread but here is a screen shot http://img21.exs.cx/img21/8584/Rpkole-dual.jpg of it on a sandra bench with Dhrystones and Whetstones but i am not sure how that stacks up to the bench mark program you all used. And yes i know that dual is spelled wrong on the screen shots :(

Not a terrible score for a system who's main purpose is coding and which was still folding in the background... oops =).

The database has finally been updated. Sorry for taking so long to get back to this thread.


BTW, burningrave101, can I get a motherboard/processor to go with that score so I can get the entry all of the way in? (I'm guessing it is an X2, but would like confirmation) Right now your score will show up in the recent list, but won't show up in the sorted lists until I get the rest of the information.
