Build Time: Firebreather

Recommended Posts

With SuperPi the one to run is the 1M test. We have threads around here with a big database of SuperPi as well as the major release 3DMarks.

Not 100% sure but I think you need to set yCruncher to Run as Administrator.

I've just done back to back tests on yCruncher current version vs an older (0.7.1) and there was 5 seconds difference in the (0,0,3) test.

With yCruncher, I'm just referring to the Pi based tests - so select option 0 straight up - for clarity I just put the option numbers is brackets e.g. (0,0,3)

With wPrime - you need to set the # of threads. It'll usually just default to # of cores but with HTT enabled you can just run double that # of threads for a better result. I usually do runs with 4 and 8 threads.

 

For comparison - my machine: Haswell i7-4970 (4.0 GHz turbo), 24 Gig Ram @ 1600 [11,11,11,28,2T]

These are without any optimisation attempts, background stuff like browser, torrents still running, no special tuning of Ram.

 

SuperPi mod 1.5, 16K: 0.138 secs, 1M: 9.76 secs

 

ycruncher 0.7.5.9481 tests: (0,0,3 - Pi, single, 100M) 36.005 seconds wall time

(0,1,3 - Pi, multi, 100M) 9.418

(0,1,4 - Pi, multi, 250M) 26.159

 

wPrime 32 [8 threads] 7.253 secs

[4 threads] 10.768

The latter part of this post I understood, but this quoted bit..? Yer talkin' Greek, man. ALL of those 3 needed to be run as admin or they just flat wouldn't run.

 

Anyway, I've been up all night getting this thing to where I can halfway use it - got a lot more still to do, but m' brayne aint werkin so hot right now. ;) I'll get to this after some sleep.

Caveat: There was a YouTube video running at 480p throughout all of these. I doubt it made a huge amount of difference, but at least it was consistent difference. ;p

 

Sorry for the extra day - just...stuff.

Never realised they bothered to update SuperPi further. Has the annoying hardware scan delay but you can bypass with Shift.

 

Doesn't run properly on my system for some reason - it's only showing seconds without fractions and not generating any output files. And that's also when running as Administrator.

 

I'd have thought your scores would have been better than mine by a bit more. 6 Cores vs 4, and much more generous turbo multipliers. Plus each generation usually has some reasonable FP improvements.

Likely your Ram timings aren't optimised real well. SuperPi and wPrime are old benches but still sensitive to memory settings and good to compare effects while you're fiddling with them.
