It'd be nice to see the i7 980X thrown in there too, just for a comparison with previous generation Extreme Edition processors. And because I have one and need some reassurance that it wasn't the worst purchasing decision of my life.
That might help explaining...[GPGPU] is the term used to describe the utilization of a graphics processing unit (GPU), which typically handles computation only for computer graphics, to perform computation in applications traditionally handled by the central processing unit (CPU).
LMFAO, you could build an entire PC with SSD and a SOLID dual GPU setup for what those other CPU's cost with the 8350 at its heart and it's PLENTY fast for most consumer needs..Plenty. This guy's hilarious.We’ll leave the FX-8350 alone in all of this. Its high power consumption and last-place performance are countered only by a $220 price tag.
Is that so eh? Maybe someone should suggest that they try using GPGPU if no one hasn't yet. For all I know, there is already GPGPU support or maybe at least they've already started. This could be a fine example of an application that could fully take advantage of GPGPU. I'm imagining that it works in a way that's similar to how Battlefield 3 applies its highest level of Ambient Occlusion and AMD's proposed method for facial recognition (chopping up an image into multiple blocks and analyzing them individually).Today marks the first time I’ve ever seen a single-processor system break under the one-minute threshold in our ABBYY FineReader 10 test. This application utilizes as many cores as you throw at it, allowing the Xeon E5-2687W to wrap up while AMD’s “eight-core” FX-8150 is still only halfway done.
For some reason, I doubt that, since the difference between the Xeon and the i7-3970X is only 2 sec. Though, the latter does have a higher speed, and I'm not sure if you (Chris) actually saw it in Task Manager or something that it was utilizing all the cores. If ever, maybe the amount of L3 cache played a part in this mild difference? Vishera's mild win over the Phenom II X6 seems indicative of WinZip having support for 8 threads, though the former also has more L3 cache I think, albeit slower (I think).The Xeon finishes in first place, confirming that WinZip is now able to completely utilize the resources available to it. Intel’s new Core i7-3970X places second, followed by its predecessor, the -3960X.
