System Spec's and Benchmarks

Prelude to Benchmarks - Test System Configuration

Over the following page we'll be running the dual socket 604 Intel Xeon 3.06GHz processor based Tyan S2726UG5N server motherboard though PCSTATS standard set of server benchmarks. The specific details of how the Tyan S2726UG5N motherboard test system and client computers were configured for benchmarking - including the hardware, software drivers, operating system and benchmark versions - are indicated below.

Take a moment to look over PCSTATS test system configurations before moving on to the individual benchmark results on the next several pages.

Please keep in mind that this is a server motherboard review, and that's why there are only a couple of network related benchmarks.

NetBench Source: E-Testing Labs

NetBench is a portable benchmark program that measures how well a file server handles file I/O requests from 32-bit Windows clients, which pelt the server with requests for network file operations. NetBench reports throughput and client response time measurements. Version 7.0.2 of NetBench answers user requests for greater disk coverage and more disk-testing flexibility. To run NetBench, you need a file server, a PC running Windows NT or Windows 2000 (called the controller) to start and monitor the tests, and clients that are running either Windows 95/98 or Windows NT/2000.

Dual CPU HT Enabled 84.62

Single CPU HT Enabled 84.62

In the first two tests we see that dual CPU's with and without HT do very little to impact overall performance. We don't have enough machines in the PCStats test labs to put a real load on the Tyan 2726UGN server.

NIC_nb701 Throughput

Dual CPU's HT Enabled

Dual CPU's HT Disabled

Single CPU HT Enabled

Single CPU HT Disabled.

It seems in the NIC_nb701 portion of Netbench there's a very small difference between one and two physical CPU's but HT does not come into play here. Remember HyperThreading technology takes advantage of the "free" execution units, if most are being used the second virtual CPU has nothing to compute with.
