On SUSE and Fedora, we pit EM64T Xeon with AMD64  View Printable Version 
Friday, July 15 2005 @ 08:14 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64From Open:

64-BIT XEON SCALE-UP

Server consolidation is no longer an either-or choice to scale-up or scale-out. The new IT mandate is to rationalize these alternatives into an solid consolidation plan that can scale-out for Web services and grid computing while scaling-up to provide the RAS capabilities needed for on-demand applications. OpenBench Labs assesses an HP DL580 G3 server (quad EM64T Xeon) on SUSE SLES 9 and Fedora Core 4; then we compare the results to a quad AMD64 server.

AMD Venice v. San Diego Core Performance  View Printable Version 
Friday, July 08 2005 @ 05:33 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64From Phoronix:

A few months ago, AMD refined their Socket 939 line of processors with the E3 and E4 revisions, codenamed Venice and San Diego, respectively, to replace the D0 Winchester. The Venice and San Diego features the improved memory controller, and most notably, AMD doubled the amount of L2 Cache for the San Diego compared to its Venice counterpart. The San Diego immediately attracted large attention among the enthusiast crowd for its enormous L2 cache; in fact, the Athlon 64 FX-57 is based upon the San Diego. While the San Diego looks great on paper, premium performance also comes at a premium price, and the cheapest San Diego, the 3700+ at 2.2GHz, runs around $330, while a Venice 3500+ running at the same clock speed is $275, and the cheaper versions of Venice 3200+ or 3000+ often overclock easily to 2.6GHz and beyond. Is the price premium justified? Does the extra 1MB L2 Cache help that much in real world performance? Just how well do these two cores compare clock-for-clock? In this review we will be running two of these CPUs at 2.0, 2.2, and 2.6GHz to see the performance difference between the two AMD cores.

64-Bit OS Club Getting Crowded  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, May 17 2005 @ 09:57 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64From eWeek:

Microsoft Corp.'s launch of x64 editions of Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP is particularly significant for the spread of 64-bit computing because these releases mark the meeting of the world's most ubiquitous operating system with the first 64-bit architecture with legs enough (thanks to its capacity for natively running x86 code) to win broad marketplace acceptance.

However, while the massive volume of Windows sites immediately pushes Microsoft to the front of the 64-bit operating system field, the company's platform rivals have, for some time now, been up and running with versions of their operating systems for Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s 64-bit architecture.

64-Bit Linux Is Already Here  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 07 2005 @ 08:36 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64From Eweek:

While 64-bit Windows is taking its first baby steps, 64-bit Linux has been running in the enterprise for years. To which would you rather entrust your business?

In Bill Gates' WinHEC opening keynote address, he talked about the third decade-the 64-bit decade-of Windows computing and the problems it faces with a lack of software and 64-bit drivers. What I want to know is why anyone who wants a 64-bit operating system today is bothering with Windows in the first place, when 64-bit Linux has been around for ages?

KDE 3.4 hits Mandriva x86-64 Cooker  View Printable Version 
Friday, May 06 2005 @ 11:08 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64About three weeks after it went into x86 Cooker, KDE 3.4.0 has hit the x86-64 Cooker mirrors. The good news is that it is in line with the x86 builds, so thanks to the x86 users for most of the bug testing :)

Hi,

The ISOs are being mirrored. CHANGES.txt attached hereunder.

Tested platforms (QA people are currently testing others):
- Asus SK8N / Opteron 144 / Quadro FX 1000 + nVidia 6633
- MSI MS-6702 / Athlon 64 3200+ / ATI Radeon 9700 + ATI v8.19.10
- HP xw8200 / Xeon EM64T / Quadro FX 1300 PCI-Express + nVidia 6633

Notes:
- ndiswrapper + win64 Broadcom drivers are also working on the nice nx9105 laptop!
- you may need "noapic" or "nolapic" on certains systems. None of mine required that, but if it happens to you, say so.

Review: MSI K8T Neo2-FIR motherboard  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, February 23 2005 @ 02:09 AM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

AMD64From Newsforge:

With last summer's introduction of AMD's 939-pin Athlon 64 processor came a demand for motherboards that will support it. There are only a handful of boards on the market designed for the socket 939 Athlon 64 CPU that are equipped with an AGP 8X interface; the new trend is to use PCI Express instead of AGP, in spite of the anemic video card selection. MicroStar International's K8T Neo2-FIR offers the best of both worlds, accommodating new technology while continuing to support the old -- and it works great with GNU/Linux.
