Memory influence on fully loaded IvyBridge
« on: 03 Aug 2014, 04:03:59 pm »
Today I replaced single 4GB memory module with 2x4GB more faster ones (also working in dual-channel config).

Tests were done on fresh rebooted system before and after memory replacement:

I remember that when I bought my trusty 8-core machine (host 2901600 - crunching for seti since, as it says, November 2006), memory speed was a problem.

It was originally running on Windows XP, 32-bit, with 2GB of RAM. But it's a workstation-class machine, built on a server motherboard, and wants to run memory in 4-channel mode. Adding two 1GB RAM modules to the two I already had enabled that mode, and increased throughput by some 25%. There are graphs somewhere in Number Crunching - we spent some time talking about it at the time. In particular, running 8 shorties - 'VHAR' - at a time really bogged it down.
