AMD Professional Graphic Cards on Single Socket Intel Xeon System
FirePro V7900 on a single Xeon sytem: 20.92 and 35.84 scores raise suspicion that SPECapc for 3ds Max 2011 is CPU-limited
FirePro V8800 also scores higher results than on Dual Xeon system
FirePro V9800 results still vary between higher amount of memory and higher latency
Here is where things got interesting indeed, there has been much expectation on how well the new Supermicro X9SCA with the Intel® C204 PCH chipset and E-Series Xeon would perform. Impeccably. What we found interesting on our findings was that the actual FirePro professional graphic cards performed better on the single socket than the dual socket - as a clear evidence how Sandy Bridge architecture is more efficient that the older Westmere. Once more and still maintaining the lead over its older siblings in many areas was to be that of the FirePro V7900. Bear in mind this new card is AMD’s first of possibly many to come.
