2 X Core2Duo Vs. 1 X Quad Core Xeon

Oct 5, 2008

I have a Quad Core Xeon right now that I had set up with RAID 1. I'm getting horrible Disk I/O rates for this drive, 1.57MB/sec sequential write speeds. I'm having slowdowns that seem to be database related and more specifically I/O related. I run both my webserver (IIS/ASP) and my database (SQL SERVER 2000) on this Quad Core Xeon box with 4GB RAM. The disk I/O is killing me. I see that I have plenty of CPU cycles and plenty of free memory. At this point I'd sacrifice RAID 1 for better performance.

Should I got with the Quad Core Xeon with 4GB RAM for this webserver/database server config or go with 2 Core2Duo servers with 2GB RAM each?

Best Option? Dual Xeon 2.4 / Xeon 3075 / Core2Duo E6750 / Quad Core X3210

May 9, 2008

I'm thinking in changing my actual dedicated server, but I'm not sure if I will win with the change.

I use it for web hosting, but I am going to need a lot of Mysql use.

I also want to work with Flash Media Server or Red5, but I have the project stopped.

All are almost in the same price. What do you recommend me?
I have never touched Linux and my Server is Windows 2003, do you recommend me to change to Linux?

Which would give higher performance in a shared web hosting environment?

Intel Quad-Core Xeon Processors

May 25, 2008

I've spend some time today in reading about different Intel based processors. I'm learning fast (I didn't know too much about chips... untill now ) but there is something I still need to ask, since I didn't find an answer. So:

Which Quad-Core Xeon processor (from low cost ones) do you like more?

... Kentsfield, Yorkfield, Clovertown, Clovertown" (low voltage), Harpertown, Harpertown (low voltage).

From waht I saw I could guess that Clovertown is the most popular...?

Intel Dual Xeon Quad Core Clovertown

Aug 18, 2008

Does anyone have an opinion on the Intel Dual Xeon Quad Core Clovertown versus the AMD Dual Core Dual Opteron? I'm assuming the Xeon is better. I recently put in an order for one, and I'm hoping I made the right decision (Yes I know it would have made more sense to ask before ordering but that's not how I roll) .

Would you provide some quick considerations, if Intel Q9400 Quad Core would be "better" than Dual Xeon 2.80GHz/Hyperthreaded at the same price?

well, I know xeon is an old one, but does it worth bothering to change from Xeon to that Q9400?

Quad Core's...Are They Useful

I read that quad cores, really aren't that useful since, most applicaitons aren't multi-threaded...*has no idea what that means*

What To Chose Intel Core 2 Quad+Intel Core 2 Duo Or Harpertown

Jun 12, 2008

We are hosting our software system which do calculation and file manipulation.
Now we have Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 and would like to get Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to increase our system performance.

Also we have other choice, get Intel Xeon E5405 Harpertown 2.0GHz
to replace two above.

I think it is better to have one server box because one box easy to manage than two. Also Harpertown is much faster than these two together.

What is your opinion?

Quad Core For Db Server

Aug 17, 2007

About to pickup a server strictly for use with MySQL databases.

Right now there's zero price difference between the Intel 5110 dual core and the 5310 quad cores. Looking around a bit online, it seems like the quad core is of no benefit (or lesser performance) than the dualie. That sql cannot take advantage of it yet.

Is this accurate? If so, where do quad core CPU's shine at this point in time?
