V8 D.I.Y. Workstation Benchmark

Very interesting. The guys at Legit Reviews benchmarked their self-built workstation from the off the shelf S5000Xvn Intel motherboard.

"That was half a year ago and it seems that AMD still doesn't have a quad-core processor on the market. For now, one can purchase two quad-core Intel Xeon X5365 processors (3.0GHz) and the Intel S5000XVN Workstation Board to create their own 'V8' system. The heart of the platform is the Intel 5000X-series chipset that powers the S5000XVN workstation board that utilizes FB-DIMM memory modules."

Vendor built or user built, the results are consistent:

And before you think that this is embarrasing for AMD, there's more:

More power for half the performance. No wonder their workstation market share is tanking.

Legit Bottom Line: Without even lauching a product line, Intel has been able to make AMD's QuadFX platform look like weak sauce thanks to their 'V8' demo systems.

The claim of Sharikou has been extremely correct on performance, performance per power, fraggin' stuff, paper launches, etc .. if he replace the word Intel with AMD and vice versa :)
