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) .
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?
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?
How would processor performace compare assuming the harddrives were the same and the amount of ram was the same? For example, how would a system with older dual xeon 2.4 or 2.8 cpus compare to Intel Core2 Duo E4300 socket 775, 2x 1.8Ghz/1M L2 system?
I am guessing that the Intel Core2 Duo would win, but by how much? I am sure this is hard to compare since ram speeds are different as well, but hopefully someone can make an estimate.
Interested in buying server quad core or even better 8x.20 or more with 8-16 GB ram, 1gbit ethernet port, more ips, if posible 255, no filters and if posible hardware router to prevent ddos problems, can someone suggest anything?The best solution for me would be somewhere in Germany/Austria/France/UK/than USA ...Europe is primary...
There are a lot of changes in the naming convention Duo Core Quad Core, Core2Dual, Core2Quad. I wonder for Dual Core Xeon 3Ghz (which we called previously) would would be its equivalent or better now than is easily found on the market?
different speed between Quadcore Q6600 2.4Ghz and Xeon 3060 Dual core 2.4Ghz? Typically i can tell the Q6600 is faster than Xeon 3060 but i am not sure which one is faster and more stable for dedicated server.
