    The FX-51's bandwidth is insane compared to the Barton 2500+, I'll be getting an FX based system as soon as the socket 939 come around I feel :)

    Zap, cool glad you can provide us with some 64 bit crunching :D

    yes but it isnt SOOOOO much better to justify with the silly silly SILLY price

    hopefully when a few more models come out and intels prescott comes out prices will drop massively

    neeeeeeeeed somehing faster, 3.3GHz is soooooooooooooo slllloooooooooowwwwwwwww :D

    As promised here you go:

    Remember this was running in Windows 2K in 64-bit mode.
    Memory FSB was 200mhz on all tests.
    I have WinXP-64 if some one has a 64-bit SuperPI program

    2200mhz:

    [​IMG]



    2400mhz:

    [​IMG]



    And the max stable (Under air cooling for now) 2500mhz

    [​IMG]

    36secs... :clap:

    SK8N Motherboard
    1GB Kingston HyperX CAS3 DDR400

    I will play around with the FSB, Multi and timings to see if I can get even lower.

    im thinking the only P4 that is going to beat that is a 3.2EE overclocked to about 3.5ish or maybe a normal 3.2 with its ass clocked off properly

    some seriously impresive numbers there zap
    from what i have seen so far a 2.5GHz fx51 is a pretty decent overclock

    i want to see a time with a couple of xeons or opterons

    zap, you must have access to quad opteron beasts at AMD, just have a bit of a play with one, go on, you know you want to :D

    just how many opterons are we talking here?? please say 32 or more :lol:

    apparently the supercomputer at the university of tokyo can generate the first million digits within 5 secs, in 1995

    impressive Zap :clap:

    I'd love to see what OPP gets on his FX-51 :D
    3015Mhz @ 232Mhz fsb... :eeek:

    BTW, the SK8V is a faster board... you'd get better scores from that IMO ;)

    no offence but i had no idea those were so slow
    i knew they werent meant for speed but i am really shocked


    it is hard to believe that that cpu at 1.2 does 10 min and a PentiumM at 1.4 is 50sec
    just goes to show that it isnt all about the MHz


    oh well at least its quiet :D

    oh my oh my, that proves AMD's point that Mhz isn't everything, as goes for the Pentium M too :)

    Well its a quiet day at work - so I benched a cross-section of what we have lying around the office:

    First up - the SQL 2000 Server, running Win2k Server. It mysteriously "went down" just before the test was run... :naughty:
    [​IMG]
    1min 3 secs not bad - HT enabled but other than that totally stock - not much call for overclocking in the office. ;)

    Next up, my machine. A rather old Dell P4:
    [​IMG]
    2mins 9 secs - owch, a lot slower than the first one.

    Next a Dell ultralight laptop - its owner is on hols so its on my desk:
    [​IMG]
    1min 10 secs Wow thats not far off the time the 2.4ghz P4 got, and way faster than my old P4 1.6Ghz :eeek: Ignore what CpuZ says about the core speed - the CPU would have been running at its full speed of 1.4ghz when it was running Super PI

    Next up one of the venerable old Dell workstations we have:
    [​IMG]
    2mins 47secs Definately showing its age.

    One of the marketing girls has a new Siemens desktop:
    [​IMG]
    2min 34secs Hmm Celerons suck lol.

    Very old Dell Dimension sitting in a corner - not sure what it does?:
    [​IMG]
    5min 54secs Loads of time to go make coffee and go flirt with the marketing staff :D

    And last and least, a laptop currently being used as a doorstop:
    [​IMG]
    7min 50secs Beat that! lol

    Maybe I should go do some actual work now...

    people say that the pentium m 1.4 does really well against a 2.4 p4, but they forget that the rated speed on a pentium m is the minimum speed that it will run at, ie on batteries. In saying this i would also argue that cpu-z doesnt read the clock of the p-m's correctly. no flaming please.
