Testing Methods

Now down to the testing.  This testing is going to include a few what I would consider server based testing.  I wanted to do some HDD based testing with this,  but the main thing we wanted to relay here is you can add SSD’s to this, and these systems do full SATA3 (6Gbps).  So if you have any of the new SSD’s that also support that you can realistically look at full speed of those drives.  So my main testing was CPU and Memory performance.

With that being said,  I will be posting results, and amperage results for idle, and full load using our Extech Power Analyzer / Datalogger.

The Processors we have to test are the following.

  • Intel Xeon E5-2620 (6c 12t 2Ghz)
  • Intel Xeon E5-2640 (6c 12t 2.5Ghz)
  • Intel Xeon E5-2670 (8c 16t 2.7Ghz)

The memory setup is identical in each machine with 4 sticks of Hynix 16GB PC3-12800R.  This gives each machine 64GB of memory.

The hard drives are also identical in each machine.  2 Western Digital RE4 500GB drives.  This gives 1TB of space in each machine.

We will be using Sandra, Unixbench, Passmark, and Cinebench R10/R11.5 for these test to see how well the system does. We will be using Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise, and CentOS 6.4 64-bit for our Operating Systems.
