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.

    “ Surely it has hardware based spyware. There's no way I'd use this for anything”

    Only idiots make false accusations without any proof in public.
    Why would anyone wants to spy on a foul-mouth imbecile like you?

    Ironically, comrade sonny73n, you're the one being foul-mouthed. Not d0x360. Reply

    The additional and permanent hard-wired coin-cell battery makes me suspicious that it's there for backdoor access. Reply

    There is no second battery, there is a 1.0 F supercapacitator that properly powers the SRAM of the FPGA. Reply

    "a 1.0 F supercapacitator"

    yeah. right.

    capacitors do come in different sizes, they also have them on enterprise ssds for the same reason as Someone else has stated. the one you linked to, is for car stereos, VERY different use cases. Reply

    " VERY different use cases."

    a Farad is still a Farad, so someone is fibbing.

    Boy that was hard to find.

    29a, exactly. Reply

    the size alone shows that.
    go look at ssds for the enterprise market with the power back up feature, and you will see.
