hmm....

Does it show you that stat anywhere? or do you just have to calculate it yourself.

CL2 SDRAM

As I understand, apple ships PC133/3-3-3 with all their Macs. You however have CL2 (2-?-? i think? or ?-2-? maybe). Is this aftermarket, did you remove the existing RAM? Or did Apple just ship your box with CL2?

CL2

It came with CL3 ram. I bought 2 256mb sticks from OWC that are CL2.

i think you have to calculate it yourself but i don't know.
I'd like to see how fast a dual 800 is.

Distributed Net's most recent public release under OS 9:

13.85 MKeys/sec

Under OS 10, I get much slower results... like 4-5MKeys/sec.

As for SETI@Home

I just tried the OS 10 version and I calcuated it out to roughly 6-something hours per unit.

Arn, is that iTunes under OS 9 or OS X?

It's eerie--you are seemingly the first person on the planet to have received a dual 800.

Dual 800 results

Here goes:

A Dual-800 with 768megs of RAM. This unit does not have a Superdrive. CD-RW only. Apple "TwinView" Graphics card. Aside from those build-to-order requests, it is a stock unit.


Cinebench 2000 test:

Shading (4D): 7.08 CB
Shading (OpenGl): 9.06 CB
Raytrace (Single): 9.93 CB
Raytrace (Multi): 17.22 CB


Throughput V1.5 test:

CPU 213.3
FPU 213.6
Altivec 220.5
Copypits 252.7


Altivec Fractal test:

(Stock settings except Maximum Count set to 65536)
6.2 Gigaflops


Processor query:

7450
Unknown Rev.
PVR 0x80000201


That's all I've got so far. I love this wonderful beast!

quake etc


Unfortunately, I don't own Quake 3... I downloaded the demo and the newest client... but didn't get it working after a quick try. I may pick up Quake 3... but someone else might beat me to the benches... or if anyone has detailed instructs on how to set it up with the demo/client.

The Quicksilver dual800 did come with OS 9.2.1

SETI@Home is not multi-processor (or Altivec) aware. If you want to test it's true SETI speed and I'd love to see the results if you do, you would need to run two copies of the software simultaneously. Supposedly the UNIX version running from the command line in OS X is the faster version available on the Mac and the OS would basically give each program a seperate processor to work with.

Just for your info, my 733 PIII at work takes around 9-10 hours to complete a work unit. If the 800 MHZ finished in around 6 hours, that's a pretty big difference in speed, considering it's only a 67 MHZ jump. Running two copies could finish a work unit in an average of 3 hours....

It's official

Contrary to popular belief, and to what you are lead to believe by the benchmarks posted here, it appears that apple is now "officially" shipping the dual 800s.....

http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2001/aug/20pmg4.html

Whatever... I guess the postings of benchmarks must be fabrications...

I wonder why they didn't come out last week and say they were shipping them?

As blakespot said to Arn, "It's eerie--you are seemingly the first person on the planet to have received a dual 800."

uhhh...

My Sawtooth G4/450 completes a SETI unit in about 5.25 hours. What gives?

The GUI version of SETI is MP enabled, in that the GUI code is a separate thread, allowing it to be dispatched to a second processor. If you want to run command line only, you'll have to run two at a time in order to push both processors.

The SETI@Home bench was on OS X...

With RC5 the OS X version seemed much slower under OS X than the OS 9 version...

I'm not sure which version of SETI you're using... but I'll give the OS 9 version a try when I get home (tommorrow evening).
