    Okay, my question here is this:

    What kind of PPD can a person expect out of a LGA775 Q9550? For argument sake lets figure the cpu at stock speeds.

    I have to wonder if this cpu would equal or exceed my 4x4 server unit.

    Also, how does a person check to see what PPD a specific system is putting out?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dano

    There are some PPD calculators out there on the net.

    The first processor I ever crunched with was a Q9550. At about 3.6GHz it was giving me around 2.7K BOINC (~20K WCG). Can't remember stock, but for a Q8300 I got just after it was doing about 2.3K at 3.2GHz

    Mine at 3.5ghz put out ~3500ppd. At stock I would figure 2700-2800 can be expected.

    Yea, that's about what mine did at 3.6ghz. :toast: I used a P45 board to get to 3.8ghz, but heat made me put it at 3.6ghz. The first board I used was a P35 board and it was great with my E8400, but just couldn't feed my quad overclocked as well and would only clock 3.2ghz. :toast: That processor was great in it time and it would be a shame not to overclock it. I felt at stock that processor was way under performance. It really showed it's colors overclocked. :toast:

    thanks guys! I am not sure that it would out due the 4x4 system though. I think, at least I figured, each of the 4 processors in the 4x4 system are doing about 1200. That would be about 4800 total per day. Of course that is just a wild ass estimated guess. :laugh:

    Thinking I may just sell this q9550 and EVGA 790i Ultra. :toast:

    Yea, the Q9550 isn't going to do 4800ppd. My i5 2500k's will do around 4200ppd on a good day @4.7ghz. Now my i7 970 @ 4ghz will do around 6000ppd. :toast:

    EDIT: Yea, I'd sale it and pick up another HD7XXX AMD card.

    :laugh: Yea I wouldn't figure the q9550 would. I wish I had the rest of the hardware and a place to put this dang thing though. I would just keep it and add to the farm.

    It would make a great CPU for a 7XX0 series card if you can swing one of those. Even if you only had one 7770, you could run 8 GPU WU's on it and use .5 CPU each.

    Yea I agree with ya Ski. :toast: Wish I had the funds to do all that. I would have to sell a bunch of shit to afford parts to put that system together. :eek:

    Would need a power supply and hard drive at the very least. And of course a 7xx0 series of video card.

    Well, I can hook you up with a drive cheap, and maybe someone else can help with a PSU. I saw one 7770 for $85 shipped recently, but it's gone now. ;)

    I can help hook you up with a PSU & HDD cheap.
    Running Linux, I get about 1.8k PPD on the E8400, so I'd expect you could get 3.5k PPD (or close) with the Q9550 @ stock under Linux-64 bit.
