Dual Processor Nodes for HPC Clusters: Additional Data for SMP Nodes
Douglas Eadline, Ph.D.
Additional results for a PIII and Athlon motherboards are presented.
The results indicate a wide range of performance that can be expected
from various motherboards and chipsets. Timing data is also supplied.
The range of performance indicates that it is possible for a cluster
of slower processors, but better SMP performance, may out perform
a cluster built from faster processors with lesser SMP performance.
