Wow, My Computer is better than I thought!


(Blende) #1

I bought my computer a couple of months ago, and i did a dxdiag cuz my friend wanted to know the exact specs. And wow to my suprise it says i have 2 Cpus at 3.2Ghz, Well! I only bought one cpu, did they make a mistake on my cuztom computer and make it better? Or is it just mean that my 3.2Ghz is Duel Channel?

I get the following Average FPS on these games:
F.E.A.R, Maxxed Graphics, Res:800X600, 48-52Frames Per Sec
Doom3, Maxxed Graphics, Res:1024X768, 55-59 Frames Per Sec

Hers the Dx Diag:

(z3r0 d) #2

probably is because hyperthreading is turned on which makes it appear that you have two processors

… that is, unless you bought a Pentium D [no relation to the Celeron D]


(Alltaken) #3

probably just hyperthreading.

1CPU acting as a virtual dual.

either that or you got a DUal core CPU but i doubt that. i don’t think you would have afforded it

You don’t really have 2 CPU’s.

Intel Pentium 4 chips have a feature called hyperthreading. Windows sees it as 2 cpu’s (virtual cpu’s), but there is really only one physical processor.

If you had 2 cpu’s, it would be a Pentium D (dual core) processor.


(bmax) #5

Hm…interesting. 3 posts saying exactly the same thing. Useless?
:o

Or was it the ol’ postcount+1…?


(Obiwan_C) #6

Or maybe they were just giving credibility to what each other said?

Obviously, but it just looks a little strange since they don’t say “I agree with…” or “As … said” in their posts. Maybe they live in parallel universes and can’t see eachother’s messages. :o

Just to clear things up…They all posted at the same time (1:00 am according to the elYsiun time) so it’s doubtful they knew someone had already posted.

Anyway, back on topic, it’s most likely just hyperthreading as other people said.

I think hyperthreading is stupid, I would turn it off in the bios if I were you (that’s just my preference).

Turn on “Threads” under the Render settings in Blender. This should make your computer render faster, b/c it will use both “virtual” cores of your processor.

(ajc158) #10

Not sure it works like that Dwarvenfury…

I think threads only applies if you have two physical cores… like me :smiley:

(digital_me) #11

Yep!!
BTW, why’d you get an Intel cpu? AMD’s run so much faster, and you can get a dual core 64bit for much less then a comparable intel.


(DwarvenFury) #12

I’ve tested it on a hyper-threaded computer, and checking the “Threads” option does speed up rendering.

ROTFLMFAO and what significant value did your (two (but better make it 3 after this)) post have to the topic at all other than +1X2?


(SamAdam) #14

here is the reason:

Memory: 2048MB DDR RAM

that, with the 6800 256MB will make textures fly.
so yes, you have a very powerful computer. have fun.
