Hi,
i'm facing a massive upgrade of our renderfarm, i'll go rack route and i need to know the speed ratio between these processors:

- xeon 5507 quad core 2.2ghz 4mb cache
- xeon 5620 six core 2.4ghz 5.86GT/s12mb cache

Then again, another question: a cheaper solution is to build I7 single processor units. I wonder if, given current prices, it's possible to build two I7 which are cheaper and faster than a single 8 core machine.

thanks,
Paolo

Check out whether they are here:

xeon 5620 is quad-core, not six-core, so you probably meant 5680?

Mine new server is Core i7 930 2.8 GHz, so if you want to check some scene, just send me it..

Hi Sensei,
thanks this is a very exhaustive chart !
I'll check about 5680... regarding testing, i've some I7 here (920 and 950) so no problem.
One question: i seem to understand this chart lists the speed of SINGLE processors.. is this right ? In other words, Xeon's value is not about double processor setup (which is the thing Xeons are for).

thanks,
Paolo

yes, I think so these are results from one cpu machine.
