Ok so probably no chances to use CB194 as a 40/56/100GbE cards (without internal Mellanox SDK for mt4113 chip).
What is maybe possible to make, is:
CB194a as a IB and do ~110GbE via EoIB (dual port and x16 PCIe 3.0)
so few CB194a cards for $17 + ~$200 IB switch ;)
probably don't make any...
This is my FV:
Model 6241, came with 8x E7-8880 v3 and 256GB DDR4 from Germany.
8880 v3 are super super slow, so replaced to 8x 8894v4 - and just worked, no issues at all (and upgrade to 2TB, 64dimms), no firmware upgrade.
for example upgrading HP DL580 G8 4x E7-8895v2 to "G9" 4x...
Single core performance like overclocked E5 1660 v3 (or not overclocked i7-8700k)
Multicore just slightly faster than i9-13900ks...
looks like slightly upgraded Xeon Platinum 9282 from 2019 (2nd Generation Scalable, 56 cores too)
IPC is on the i7-8700k / i7-7700k / i9-7940X / TR...
I think it can be thermal paste on CPU pads or LGA pins. SMI is between CPU and Jordan Creek chipset, swap CPU's between books and check.
I have experience just with 2 of them:
4x 8895 v2 - about 37000 in R23
4x 8894 v4 - about 62000 in R23
8x 8894 v4 - not working in CB R23 (too many...
Yes, I ran 4x 8894 v4 on DDR3 but inside HP DL580 G8/G9 with SPI board from G9 (also in theory support DDR4 only).
DDR3 was maybe 1% slower than on DDR4 in benchmarks (in R23 even slightly faster- lol, ~62000 points).
When having HP DL580 G8 and G9 at the same time you can also...
Yes, if you are talking about 1 or 2 NVMe it's not a problem and everywhere will achieve 3.4-3.6GB/s but still closer to CPU1 is better
Page 22 (page 40 in PDF)
So slots connected to the CPU1 are the best:
Any slot in "Storage book" (one of them...
You are super close ;)
E7 v2/v3/v4 support 24 DIMMs per CPU.
so it is "6 DIMMs" per CPU channel
or "3 DIMMs" per Jordan Creek mem buffer chip channel
Not possible here :/ (possible on E5 v2 even on DDR3 -1680v2 also possible with E5 v3, I think up to 2600 or slightly more when overclocked -...
Yes, it's on the NVMe. 1 for system (970 Evo +) , and 12 for data (older 970 Evo not plus), one Mellanox 2x100GbE, one Geforce 1050.
It's almost like a standard PC.
I have 2 "books" for SATA 2.5" drives (not using it, but tested and seems to be quite fast, ~7GB/s to cache per "book", 8x SSD...
I skipped LGA3647 after bought LGA2066 10gen i9 and see almost same results as 1660v3 ;) (10 cores vs 8)
but you are right coworkers here are using i9 or 5950X (now first 7950X "arrived")
and when don't have to re-compile everything they are fine:
Spec is like this:
GPU slot divvied into 2x...
Builders don't require lot of them
4xNVMe is very good especially when PCIE 4.0
1x NIC 2x 100GbE is ok
RTX connected to PCIe 3.0x4 ;)
memory is a problem - should be supported by NVMe drives if not possible to install 512GB.
so AM4 AM5 and Z790 is ok
btw. @DaveLTX please make the CPU-Z test because I am fan of the Passmark you are fan of the CB CPU-Z will be independent.
And I am not fan of anything history of my PC's that I personally was working on: AMD 286, Intel 486, AMD K6, AMD A64, Intel Core2Duo, i5, 1650v2, 10885H.
Probaly your bar...
Agree (in most cases ;) ) and this was the reason to make experiments like this:
2x2697v2 <- first builder
4x 8895v2 <- second builder
TR3970X <- third one
4x 8894v4 <- mistake (better to use 5950X, AMD is slower but not that much)
8x 8894v4 <- fifth try (yes, faster than 7950X and 13900kf...
