Intel and AMD battle it out in the server market. Is Intel's new Woodcrest able to dethrone the mighty AMD Opteron? We compare two servers and get the facts for you.
So Opteron beating Netburst grade chips was a moot point as well? New Technology beating old technology?Good article, but its a moog point. New technology beats old technology. Big news there. :roll:
That is always going to be the case when benchmarking tech. In 07 when the new Opteron is released, it will be benched against whatever Intel has at the moment. Are you going to whine then?Your a quick learner, exactly! A new technology processor is always going to be better than the old technology.
Actually I just noted something about the power ratings.
I just reviewed that and noted that about 44w-88w (or even higher) should be added to all of the power numbers of the Xeon.
? ? ? ? ? ?
The only way to judge a processor is in part of a system.
I know that power usage is of extreme importance in many datacenters.
The lower power usage of the Xeon initially had me very excited.
However, this is now not the case if you read the fine print.
Still the new chip is impressive.
Yeah, it may not be news about new architecture beating old, but it does not mean you cant atleast look since it is not always the case.
My issues with the article are lack of true server type of benchmarks and very misleading graphics for power usage.
It must be noted that in the Intel systems, every FB-DIMM consumes nearly 11 W and has its own heat sink for cooling. At over 40 W, the RAM consumes a large amount of power and thus limits the benefits of the lower power usage of the Xeon Woodcrest CPUs.
