We reported on this a few days ago, but now the article is updated 8/17/02 with ‘streamlined’ graphs, tweaked verbiage, and addition of a very interesting Memory Speed Graph. Page Two added on 8/20/02 with additional tests. Updated 8/21/02 with another bottleneck theory and Memory Speed Graph interpretation. Read the updated benchmarks here and here. What will it take to fix the bottleneck, the conclusion asks? The author replies: A CPU than can handle the full speed of DDR memory (like the fabled PPC 7470) and a redesigned motherboard with separate bus for each CPU.
