AH HA! We have the culprit!!!
Indeed, every bit helps.
Hang on friends. Bulldozer is only a couple months away - a couple weeks if you're interested in server chips.

Wasn't bulldozer supposed to be out like a year ago already
I don't know. I know it's delayed since it was supposed to be lauched in June, but I think that's been the only delay. Honestly don't know though.
I figure people have been jizzing their jeans over it for at least as long as the Intel fanboys did the same over Nahalem.
Yeah I have been some time. I won't upgrade right now, want to see how they do in WCG first.
Normally I'm the same way but I actually use 2 of the 4 rigs running right now so raw performance is important to me for other reasons. What I mean is, since the BD rig will replace one of my 1090t's, my main interest will be how it performs on normal cpu intensive tasks like transcoding, encrypting, archiving, etc. If it does well overall it will probably be a good cruncher.
BD though is going to be a different animal though since each module only has one fp unit. So you'll have 8 cores but only 4 fpu's. Of course that's also true for Intel's hyperthreaded i7's so maybe that won't mean much, but we'll have to see.
I love how my PC runs, so unless it crunches better, I ain't touching it. I do have to build a rig though, so we'll see.

Just got my I7 930, my#2 I7 2600k, and 1090t back in the game. The one I7 2600k that I will give to a friend is leaving soon. Never thought it costs this much to give a rig away.

Well, despite GreaseMonkey shutting down his farm, we are still putting some very good #'s. The heat will definitely take a toll on us for a bit. Gotta get through it!
Wait. What did I miss? This sounds familiar and could just be my memory issues again, but what happened?
edit: Never mind - found it - memory issues

I think this is the first time is weeks that we've been over 2.1M so

Great job everyone, we are on a roll!
Looks like part of yesterday came out of today's numbers.

Yep, either that or today's updates have been borked...
think the numbers are a bit off, since it too forever to get updates yesterday afaik
