Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review

Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Built around a e 2.4GHz dual core Athlon64 X2 4800+ CPU, and pre-installed with Microsoft WindowsXP Professional, the system should have plenty of potential pixel kicking power.

Benchmarks: ScienceMark 2.0, POVRay, SPECviewperf 8.0

ScienceMark 2.0 Source: ScienceMark

Mol Dyn: Molecular Dynamics is a method for simulating the thermodynamic behaviour of materials using their forces, velocities, and positions. Most important of the afore mentioned is the force. Primordia: This code calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbital for each electron in any element of the periodic table Lower times indicate better results.

A regular Athlon64 4000+ completes the Mol Dyn benchmark in about 72 seconds so we see a decent performance boost already. Primordia times are about the same as the single core Athlon64 4000+. ScienceMark 2.0 numbers are quite good, but we see that 64 bit computing, whether using the 32 bit or 64 bit version of the program, is slower than when running in the 32 bit environment.

POVray Source: POVray

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-Ray) is an all round excellent package, but there are two things that particularly make it stand out above the rest of the crowd. Firstly, it's free, and secondly, the source is distributed so you can compile it on virtually any platform.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

POVray is another single threaded CPU cruncher, one thing is for sure, if you plan to go with a dual core processor it pays to find out if your programs are SMP compatible! POVRay performs the same no matter if it is running on a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system. The results are pretty quick!

SPECviewperf 8.0 Source: SPEC.org

SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance.

The programs within SPECviewperf do not take advantage of dual core processors, however it seems like WindowsXP Professional x64 Edition helps.
