Dual Xeon Insanity

[email protected]

If you thought the 53000 PPD we saw with the i7-3960X was special then welcome to dual Octocore CPUs. The speed difference between the two sets of Xeons is clearly demonstrated with the 2687Ws giving a massive 114933 PPD. Still considering the overclock on our hexcore i7 it's surprising how much extra performance the little 2660s can deliver.


As one would expect the Spinpoint F3 is very much the limiting factor here with even the E5-2687W setup not managing to beat out the 3XS system we reviewed the other day in overall performance. However that CPU score is a beastly one on both types of Xeon and you can see how the extra CPU performance effects the rest of the system. The memory score in particular receives a huge boost.
