Default Phenom Phun

Out of curiosity, I picked up an AMD Phenom 9500 (2200 MHz) and ECS A770M-A motherboard combo for USD 199 at Fry's this week. I threw in whatever other parts were in the spare parts bin*, installed 32 bit WinXP SP2, and noted a few (very few) timings.

My initial impression is that the Phenom scales better than the C2Q (as expected with the better memory architecture), but with somewhat interesting results:
Code:
                 CORE
+---------------------------------------+
|____0____|____1____|____2____|____3____|
|   .039  |   .039  |   .039  |   .039  |
|    x    |   .037  |   .037  |   .037  |
|    x    |    x    |   .036  |   .036  |
|    x    |    x    |    x    |   .038  |
+----------------------------------------+
All were testing the same exponent (20501623) using a 1280K FFT size. The timings were identical across all combinations of cores; it didn't matter which cores were idle.

If I ever get some more free time I'll test with each core running a different exponent and FFT size. Right now each core is running a different exponent (double checking) but the same 1280K FFT size, and the timings are the same as in the chart.

* For the curious or detail oriented:
RAM: OCZ Platinum series DDR2-800
Video: ATI 9200 PCI (Not PCI-E) @ 1680x1050x32
HD: Some Maxtor 10GB circa 2000 - might be 5400 r.p.m.
AMD stock HSF
All stock BIOS settings with the exception of turning CPU virtualization off.
Memory timings were 5-5-5-15 (set by SPD, although the RAM is rated for 4-4-4-12)
WinXP was run in normal (not safe) mode, AVG Free Edition was running.

That is fantastic news for the Phenom! With the C2Q, you more or less waste 1 core as the memory bottleneck comes into play (and that's with 1066MHz DDR memory).

On the flip side, your timings per core are slower per MHz than a C2Q. When running a single core, I'd place your 2.2GHz Phenom around the speed of a 1.86GHz Core 2 (looking up http://www.mersenne.org/bench.htm for 1280K FFT).

When this and the use of all cores are factored in, your 2.2GHz Phenom is approx a 2.5GHz C2Q [2.2GHz x 1.86x4/(2.2x3) = 2.5].

My Q6600 does 4 doublechecks @1280k FFT somewhere between .036-0.37s per iteration time. (default 2.4GHz, DDR2-800, G33 chipset)
So I'll need aprox 2250-2300 MHz for .039s times.

So it seems that Phenom (and AMD) is not that bad, after all...

Heh, finally the whole memory situation gets some proper info. I've had someone tell me the same thing, but I didn't feel it would be a good idea to quote them(no, I'm not telling why), so I just sat on the information.

Default Phenom (9850) fun: 4x@2750MHz - full quad - LL 10M

I'm very much sattisfied with my new Phenom 9850 B3 @4x2750MHz!

My quadcore-mashine does full 4x LL (Lucas-Lehmer) primality-tests at >38M length digits:
