Frame times on A5 BigAdv WUs

Postby Mizzou_Engineer » Sat Feb 26, 2011 9:57 pm

Since the A3 core is being phased out in favor of the new A5 core, I thought we should have a thread on the performance of the new A5 core WUs.

Accordingly, as with the original thread, please post the following details:

Project: ____
Average time/frame: ________ {in hh:mm:ss}
CPU: _______ @ ____ GHz
# of CPU sockets:
# of Physical cores:

# of FAH CPU processes:
# of FAH GPU Clients:

RAM GB installed:
RAM Type: {DDR/DDR2/DDR3}
RAM Speed:
NUMA enabled/disabled/not used

OS name/kernel version
Client:
Running in VM: {Yes/No}

How is it possible that rwh202 has an average TPF of 22:45 min on nearly the same system as ChasR (24:45 min), although ChasR has a higher CPU clock speed and faster (?) RAM?
Should be the OS the reason?

BTW, here is the info for my box:

Project: 6901 (Run 22, Clone 13, Gen 0)
Avg. Time / Frame : 00:33:37 - 31.597,7 PPD
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (Turbo boost is on, so frequency may vary, CPU-Z shows ~3.5 GHz)
# of CPU sockets: 1
# of Physical cores: 4 (HT is on)

# of FAH CPU processes: 8
# of FAH GPU Clients: 0

RAM GB installed: 8 (2 x 4 GB Kingston ValueRAM PC3-10600 CL9)
RAM Type: DDR3
RAM Speed: 667Mhz 9-9-9-24 1t (according to CPU-Z)
NUMA enabled/disabled/not used: not used

OS / Linux kernel: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Running in VM: no
Dedicated: Yes

Yes, LINUX is faster than windows.

Overall, just a tad slower than the A3's were for this machine.

When the current WU finishes, I'll give it a go in a Ubuntu 10.10 VM guest. Heck, I might just change the OS to 10.10.

I think I will install Linux within the next few days... Will it make a difference if I run it in a VM (host Win7) or is it better as stand-alone?

Better to run alone. There is some overhead that you will pay running in VM as there is some when we run the windows SMP client in WINE.
