Man, this test takes forever! 🙂 The results are worth the time though as the again the Tyan boards show the SMP power on the Adobe engine. In this test, lower is better as we are referring to the time it takes to complete a number of jobs. Interestingly, the Tiger MP beats the Thunder K7 by a few seconds, overall.
The tests here show the SMP advantages. The Tiger has at least a 20% increase in results on the scores here.
I separated the Cli tests in two graphs for easier viewing. The Tyan advantage is at it again, except for the case of memory bandwidth. Since I am not sure how the CliBench program tests the memory, I cannot deduce why the AMD-760 MP chipset is not pulling ahead by any more than it is.
Another of my favorite new benchmarks is the Linux compilation. The two Tyan boards are separated by about 5 seconds, leaving the single CPU system way behind. This should show the advantage that even Linux users can take advantage of using the dual-Athlon setups shown here.
