I have sitting here an athlon ii x2 220 and a x2 240
Both have a stock vcore of 1.4v and both hit 3.5ghz easy on stock volts.
Price for both are the same. I borrowed both from 2 different frieneds. They told me I can use them,overclock them and test them out and see which I like better before I pay them.
Both seem to run the same temps,both overclock the same for 24/7 use.
So the question goes back to, how big of a difference does l2 cache make?
BTW upping the clock speed from 2.8ghz to 3.5ghz took ~30mins off of the time it takes per-task to get done. Does that seem right? (this is on the X2 220)
I'm honestly not sure ATM. I've been trying to do some tests on my HPs and older laptops, but I have confounding variables that's making it hard (namely, some run Vista, some run 7, and some run Ubuntu). I'll look at my numbers and see what info I can dredge up
And as far as the time difference goes--what sort of percentage increase is this? Because HCC completes far, far
faster than CEP2.

Don't know why I can't see their temps though...
And it's not like the GTX580s are that
hot...they're sure running cooler than the GTX470s I have

Crunch On, (and you better hurry if you had any serious badge level in mind
and yes we are talking about HCC.
Thank you for keeping us updated! It's awesome to see how much time the GPU applications have chopped off of this-but it is a shame that our cards will be idled in two months
