With great power comes great responsibility. What are you going to do with this beast?
Lock it to one core and pretend it's 2003, hopefully.
Still, I can see how limiting the number of cores might be helpful if the power bill becomes a concern.
Render, render all the things.
The irony is that this is probably more eco friendly than most powerful 2003 single core chips anyways.
I would have some applications for that in scientific computing. But more realistically jackhead could render stuff in blender while the encoding h265 and playing a modern game, with two players on the same machine (2 screens etc) playing online, all while hosting a semi-succesful website, and have a few cores idle.
I guess you would ROCK in the fold@home project.
i think biggest part of such samples are the price, you can get such one much cheaper as the latest i7 with great performance if you need cores.
By the way seller add the 22 core ^^.
Not mine, but here's a 133 on eBay.
Awesome setup. Glad you got it working!
So I just though of that thread because I got to play with such a system nowadays...
2 x 18C/32T Xeons with 128GB ram and a P4000...
It's satisfying to see all threads and RAM at 100% at the same time... Gotta love OpenMP.
@Jackhead, what is cache and frequencies of your engineering sample?
