As you gather, I like the T3400 Dell range of servers, so I got another - with 3Ghz dual core CPU, and GeForce 9600 GT/PCIe/SSE2 - to upgrade to a quad core also. Before I do, I want to get some stats for performance as is; to see any improvements a move to the quad core actually makes.
So what's in this one?
As is, it's not great running Unigine - but expected with only 512MB RAM PCIE GPU card in it:
Running the sysbench CPU and MEM tests:
sudo sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=100000 run
sudo sysbench --test=mutex --memory-oper=read run
sudo sysbench --test=mutex --memory-oper=write run
As expected it can't run the Intel Supercomp tests - I suspect insufficient 8GB RAM like the T3400 Quad.
After Quad CPU Upgrade...:
