So, the hpcc is probably explainable by my having done dumb stuff with the libraries. That makes sense.
But I’ve enabled PBO2 with board defaults and am using the enermax TR2 cooler. I have verified that my temps are 55-60c, decently far away from the 68c where TR2 begins to throttle. I even raised the temp throttle limit on the aorus extreme to 80c with no effect (two pbo2 scores).
Anyone have any ideas as to what the issue might be? It’s sorta odd… it’s been a long week so perhaps I’m also just not thinking clearly and I’ve done something obviously dumb. I’ve tested on fedora 28 (not shown) and got similar results, though.
Performance covernor confirmed, except there is a UEFI bug on the Aorus Extreme right now where the performance governor for hyperthreaded cpu 16 is… missing? From the acpi tables or whatever?
PBO2 or higher where appliccable override and set their own caps, is why; so that’s on a par. Monitoring your temps is the way to go for this, like you did.
Cannot help in regard to the actual question am afraid, but much as you’re gonna hate me saying this, Windows has its uses. Have you run it through its hoops there, compare what you get with what “most” are getting?
Would at least alleviate (or showcase) certain aspects of this equation.
On the surface, it shouldn’t be as 3200 is the sweetspot for the IF, timings becoming the primary factor once there.
Below the surface… could the ECC chip affect the IF directly?
If you have info on this, i’d love to know please.
am now wondering about tracing too… Googleing that now.
No idea about the strange relative performance of your 2950X vs your 1950X. But working mpi libraries made a ~10X difference for me with hpcc.
I think getting the libraries set up correctly might be a necessary first step, at least if the results are to mean anything. Also, notice that the compiler options superimposed on many of the charts differ between your (and my) results vs the benchmarks.
So I swapped out to gcc 8.2 and then to just running indigo (which doesn’t recompile itself anyway) now using tight timing samsun bdie memory at 3200 with pbo and all that. Still only getting around 1.8 in indigo and not the expected 2.0+
Indeed. But pts shows about 2 for the 1950x as well.
As does tech report.
Ddr2666 Dr/Ds is not really much slower than 3200 Sr/ss, either. Which is not entirely unexpected. I’m sure 2666 sr/ss is slower… but not Dr/Ds.
