11) Message boards : Number crunching : The Year of the Tiger Challenge (Message 21029)

I calculated, by a specific workunit taking x amount of time, 8 i7 cores still beat 6 i7 cores, on WUs per hour, even though they take less time..

Another interesting thought..
In the simap races, there are several i7-920 that still beat this 965.
looking at the boink benchmarks, the floating point is higher than mine, though my integers is higher..
Then you look at the E5k series..
slower per core, but with 16 (range 12 to 32) cores... wow...

My i7-965 no oc, is running them in about 13 minutes with 8 cores.. (HT on)
For yahoos, I temporarily dropped boinc manager to run only 6. It ran several in 10.5 minutes..

Yes, less time, but still not enough to cover the loss of the extra 2 virtual cores.
Also, not willing to experimanet much more atm..

I can see running with 7 if running GPU, as GPU based tasks will not need to wait for CPu bandwidth as much..

For me, HT stays on, as well as 100% cpu.
