As promised, home PC run:
Check your BIOS under North Bridge configuration. There should be an option DCT Unganged Mode. Instead of Auto, set it to "Enabled" or "Always".
Unganged mode = Dual channel
Ganged mode = Single channel
That can be the problem. In my M5A97, if you set the voltage mode as "Manual" instead of "Offset", the cool and quiet, C1E and SVM features are automatically turned off and those options disappear. I had to select it as offset and set a - or + sign followed by a value to increase/decrease it.
no i think its a phenom limitation. heard about it somewhere. will try it though
also my ram is crazy. getting spd read errors sometimes XD
got a download link? i can only find the trail version
I am having yet another crazy thing. Yesterday, the usable memory was 4014 MB. Today it is 4012 MB.
Cracked links not allowed here.
They're both dual-channel, only different ways of handing it.
Didn't know it. Thanks for adding.
Ganged = dual channel but 64 bit
Unganged = dual channel but 128 bit. Right?
*I have a A10 5800K I'm playing with atm.
To the person who's post I just removed: We don't care / don't want to know / don't discuss such things here.
just figured it out. there are two options.
unganged and auto.
if i leave it at auto its single channel. lol. and gives microcode initialization errors sometimes. lol.
it just wont run dual channel.
A10 5800K @ 4.2ghz. 2200mhz northbridge:
theres no differnce :X
Phenom/phenom ii's are equipped with two 64 bit memory controllers. When you use unganged mode you use both controllers giving you 128 bit memory access. Ganged mode uses a single controller giving you 64 bit memory access. C2/3 chips do not have good enough memory controllers to run ganged memory fast enough to gain performance. Phenom I B3/Thuban E0 chips on the other hand can, certain applications will show improvements with ganged memory (super pi), but for the most part unganged is the way to go.
Does anyone have a 3930k/3960x/3970x with 2133Mhz memory or faster in quad channel mode? I would love to see how my 3820 fairs up against the other skt2011 setups but so far, I'm the only one.
i have a 3820 too
now in quad =)
One thing's evident from the posts. Intel's caches are faster than that of AMDs at least for now. I was looking at the scores of the FX8350 and the i7 3770 and there are huge differences in the cache speeds no matter what the clock speeds of the FX are. That being said, maybe that is one of the reasons why i7 leads the FX in low threaded benchmarks.
nope. there is a lot of black stuff behind the lines. AMD cant use the same way intel calculates stuff, or soemthing like that. it was in a thread on the new 9xxx fx tweakr chips.
Intels favorite song is ... "anything you can do.. I can do better..I can do anything better than you"
Anyways, further tweakings.
NB at 2.85 GHz, memory at 1629 MHz and CPU clock at 3.768 GHz
I got this setting stable finally. In my old motherboard(Asus M4A88TD-M EVO) it would fail(NB anything above 2.83)....
any chance you could throw a table in the op dude?
only it would make comparisons much easier
just make sure everyone who gets in the table uses 3.00.25 and they will all be valid
No, there is. A 200mhz increase isn't going to put up big numbers.
True and not true. AMD's IMC obviously is pretty weak compared to the competition. It is true that AMD struggles with Intel's monopolistic instruction sets but really, it doesn't matter who's at fault considering AMD users are the ones getting screwed.
A comparison table would be nice.
Separate names with a comma.
