Benchmarks: Windows

For both systems, we installed Windows: Windows 10 Pro on the small 8-core Dhyana system, and Windows 10 Enterprise on the big dual 32-core Dhyana Plus server. With AVX/AVX2 not working properly, our range of testing was limited. As mentioned previously, some software didn’t even want to run on one system or the other, such as CPU-Z on the server.

Corona 1.3 Renderer

PoV-Ray 3.7.1

Agisoft Photoscan 1.3.3: 2D to 3D Image Conversion

3D Particle Movement v2.1 (non-AVX)

AppTimer: GIMP 2.10.4

AES Encoding

Geekbench v4 Crypto (Single Thread)

From the numbers we can see that our 8-core Dhyana processor falls somewhere between the 6-core Ryzen 5 1600X and the 8-core Ryzen 6 1800X, due to clock speeds, but on particular tests it gets hammered by even the Athlon 200GE. The dual 32-core Dhyana Plus server seems to be in all sorts of a mess, often beaten by the Ryzen 7 1800X, or can now be easily beaten by the Ryzen 9 3950X. The one benchmark where it did really well was Corona – a memory/NUMA agnostic integer based renderer – it seems like a match made in heaven.

    Ok, moron. Last time I checked those are independent states, not US property. But wasn't Ukraine invaded under, I don't know, Obama? Reply

    I agree with the other guy. Trump was elected with promises among which reining back global military intervention was one of them, and I believe this is honestly one of his personal stances. Ukraine was a member of the USSR, one of the closest to Moscow, I would say it was quite greedy for NATO to try to turn Ukraine(do you really need to shit on their doorsteps?) and not a core interest of the US to see that through bearing the risks that come with military intervention.

    Feel like I'm in a bizarro world entering this comments section. You're not the only one, but you in particular have managed to demonstrate a lack of both basic reading comprehension and general knowledge of the semiconductor market in the span of just five nearly incoherent sentences. It's like you have the memory of a goldfish with a laser focus on missing the point on any topic in order to verify your worldview, truly astonishing. Reply

    Really excellent journalism. It's nice to see hard (pun intended) facts addressing what people just have been speculating and spinning. Reply

    Holy shit! The Obama administration was actively supporting the theft of American intellectual property! Biggest news in this misdirect of an article. Reply

    I love how people immediately jump into conclusions about the administration, despite knowing absolutely nothing. Dunning-Kruger effect at full force here Reply
