Can anyone rate the performance of a Tyan Transport TX46 (B4985) with quad AMD Opteron 8220 Dual-Core 2.8 2x1MB cache compared to an Intel platform with 8 cores? How does Intel and AMD compare on an 8 core platform?
I run a large forum and I currently use dual Amd Opteron 248 with 2 gigs. I am looking am moving server to Canada and I am looking at Iweb and they don't offer opterons. Do any of these compare to a my opterons? I also plan on adding 2 more gigs of ram.
My options at Iweb Core2 Duo 2.4GHz (800MHz FSB) — Add $45.00 /month Core2 Duo 3.0GHz (1333MHz FSB) — Add $70.00 /month Core2 Quad 2.4GHz — Add $80.00 /month Core2 Quad 2.66GHz
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?
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?
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...
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) .
