Thanks Venturi, I already had another board overnighted so it's no problem. Are they compatible with the dual core
Opterons?

The K8WE works great with dual-core Opterons. Most reviews around the Internet used the K8WE for their dual-core testing. Here's my review of dual-core Opterons using the K8WE:

That was a very unbiased and objective review Augustus.

I'm very pleased with the dual core performance on my Suse 9.3, and the Windows 2003 64 ent server official runs alright as well.

Any word on SLI through Linux from nvidia?

Anyhow, I just got my dual core 275 (how did you get (2) 875???) and I look forward to exploring things with them this weekend.

Talking Re: Dual OPTERON SLI BENCHMARKS

Venturi, I think that I speak for everyone who reads your posts that you are doing us all an awesome favor. Everytime anyone asks you for some benches, you do whatever you can to get them ASAP...

Thanks bro!

I was wondering if you could tell us all how well your 275 DC Opterons overclock.

Also, how did you get all of this hardware? Doing a rough estimate of your system at market values, I get about $10,000. That's not even counting all of the hardware that you constantly trade in! I know that you won't discuss the price of your system, and I agree with you fully. I'm not asking you to confirm a price point, I just want to know if all of your equipment was bought personally or if you are connected (As you appear to be).

Last question: I am a linux newbie. I am having trouble running my Athlon 64 Proc on 64 Bit Linux Installs on my Geforce 6600 GT. There is a problem addressed by nvidia with Geforce 6 Series of GPUS and 64 Bit Linux Installs. Using the same Linux OS, I can load the 32bit version (i386 or i586) but not the 64 bit version due to video problems. I just wanna know if you experienced any problems with your 6800 Ultras And/Or Quadro FX 4400's

Whoever you want me to kill, I will for that system.

Just kidding of course. NICE COMPUTER!

I can overclock the Opterons without consequences to about 2.4ghz, up from 2.2 stock. The HT will go past the 222mhz point, but I see errata in certain apps beyond 222mhz HT. Remember that this is a software overclock (Win)- it would be nice to do this in the BIOS instead. On the other hand - drivers are still being developed and a good driver will be a greater quality/speed solution than any overclock.

I have downloaded and installed the 9.3 Linux load on my quadro system and I seem to have 3d acceleration and most of the bells and whistles - HOWEVER I do not have any SLI features.

The Suse distribution seems to handle the Nvidia card well. I hate to admit ignorance, but I have not worked with the G or RedHat in a couple of years. In addition, I did go through several painful hoops to get the SATA raid to perform as I would expect.

Some advice on Linux, dual opterons, and AMD64:

Make use of this forum at http://lists.suse.com/archive/suse-amd64

-in there you will see many people, problems, solutions etc. I highly recomend it.

I will answer the third question as accuratly as I can while still remaining vague:

No, I did not spend as much on the box as you might expect - most of it was done through relationships and leveraged positions. It wasn't free either. But I really am enthusiastic when it comes to this stuff.

On a side note:
On the official release MS Win Enterprise Server 2003 64 bit OS
Doom III / ROE with the new 76.71 -64 bit driver
1600x1200 Ultra settings 8x AA and all eye candy
SLI:

133.4 FPS

... now if John could make the Doom III engine multithreaded ...shudder
Anyone know of any current multi-threaded games? (Yes-I already did the patch 1.17 Quake 3) I have found several 64-bit games, but my quest is for multi-threaded 64-bit games.

Thanks a lot Venturi!

Maybe I'll try Suse 9.3, being that it was JUST released. I already tried Suse 9.2 Pro. I did try Centos 4.0 and it was just released but who knows, mebbe it'll work. Thanks for the link too. Much appreciated.

That was exactly what I was looking for

Oh yeah, one more question... You've been posting tons of benches for your system, but your system is so damn advanced that it's impossible to compare it to other benchmarks lol... I was curious as to which was faster for gaming in windows: Your 6800 Ultra SLI Setup or your Quadro FX 4400 SLI setup?

In all honesty - the quadro SLI is faster than the same spec (512) 6800 ultra. HOWEVER since it is only about an 8% speed differential,,,I would not reccomend it for a 100% price differential. yes, it is very much faster and yes other benefits are incurred, but the retail on the quadros is more than twice that of the regular ultras... unless you can also use the quadros for professional reasons -stick with the 6800 ultra SLI.

Default Re: Dual OPTERON SLI BENCHMARKS

To be honest with you bud, I don't have enough for either right now. I'm going to college for IT and I'm pretty broke. However, I was just curious and I conduct as much research on these sorts of things as possible. It's much appreciated.

If anything, I was expecting the Quadros to be slower for gaming. I've seen benches of a Quadro FX 4400 vs. a 6800 Ultra in Workstation apps and in some apps the Quadro has like a 300% speed increase over the 6800 Ultra for some reason... but that's only in pure workstation apps.

Either way, thanks again man.

Thank you, I do my best.

SLI for Linux us on the wat but don't expect full SLI support till July. There will be Quad monitor support with OpenGL support across all 4 before that though.

I got my 875s through the usual PR, hardware review channel. And how did you get 275s?

@jasteele:

You shouldn't have ant problems with NVIDIA cards under 64-bit Linux. What issues are you seeing?

I got a 4 of the 875 for a quad dev program and board, but I had to go and "buy" the 275s for my personal rig.

Anyone need some slightly used opteron 252s???
