Workstation Processors Duel: AMD Opteron against Intel Xeon
I don't think there is a need for synthetic benchmarks like Sisoft or PCMark as well as games in a workstation article.
I use FLUENT 6.2.16, (Windows and Linux versions), but I'm curious which one did you folks use...64bit one or 32bit one?
As well, which model, solvers/settings did you use? Sometimes, you see one benefit over another.
I don't think there's anything unique about FLUENT's results though, given that engineering apps like these are often properly written to take advantage of multi-core/CPU solutions.
FLUENT also supports clustering. But you need low-latency (expensive) networking to really benefit.
Don't agree with any of this personally test HT and it out performance AMD, any day.
