Fuel V12 DCD R16K 900MHz 4GB

Unread postby ClassicHasClass » Fri Aug 22, 2014 11:20 pm

UPGRADED!!! See end

I'm making a new thread since this really is a "new" bigred -- new machine, new motherboard, new PIMM, new RAM, thanks to mopar5150. The only things carried over were the old hard disk, the SCSI card, the FireWire card and the DAT; I also installed the front bezel from the first bigred because it's a little nicer. I even installed a Pioneer 305S since it's a 40X CD-ROM drive (besides DVDs).

Just to see if the bump in cache speed makes any difference, I did a little testing in dhrystone, which is not a great benchmark but is easy to configure and run. When it was 700MHz, I got

Code: Select all

cc -Ofast=IP35 -o dhrystone dhry21a.c dhry21b.c timers.c

Dhrystone Benchmark, Version 2.1 (Language: C)

Please give the number of runs through the benchmark:
Execution starts, 10000000 runs through Dhrystone
Execution ends
...

Code: Select all

Register option selected?  YES
Microseconds for one run through Dhrystone:     0.4
Dhrystones per Second:                       2792636.2
VAX MIPS rating =   1589.434


At 800MHz,

Code: Select all

Register option selected?  YES
Microseconds for one run through Dhrystone:     0.3
Dhrystones per Second:                       3194754.5
VAX MIPS rating =   1818.301


I ran each one about three times and the numbers were stable. That's a 14% increase ... as expected from the simple ratio of clock speeds. Oh well. 14% is still better! And it runs very well.

It looks just like it did before except for the new drive, so refer to those pictures. Internally the M-Audio was replaced by the Audigy that mopar5150 provided, and he also threw in a USB card that works well. I'll let him comment on those, since I don't know if they're in the Fuel aggregator yet.

And after I posted that, it occurs to me that there's no way dhrystone could have tested the cache speed difference anyway, because the entire thing fits into cache and then some. Any benefit from 350MHz to 400MHz would have been well below the noise floor.

I should post a picture with the door open. The black Pioneer 305S I have really looks sharp in there, like it was made for it.

Any reason why you swapped the M-Audio for the Audigy? It otherwise looks like a very nice upgrade indeed, but that part seems to be a step backwards!

Purely laziness, since it was already installed in the new machine. I don't notice much difference, though I don't have it connected into anything particularly hi-fidelity.

IBM T221. 22", 3840x2400. Was a very nice screen up until recently but now there are a large glut of 24"-ish 4K displays with better connectivity options. These new models have pushed the T221 prices way down.

Not better for an SGI, however. Two or four DVI connectors is within reason for several SGI models. HDMI, thunderthighs, even dual-link dvi is something of a speed bump for anything from Sillycum Graphics.

It looks possible some day tho, which is nice. Maybe Classy can pave the way on this :P

4K at 22 inches seems rather packed. is there some sort of retina-like functionality you'd use this for? sounds like anything like icons and interfaces with hardcoded fonts would be pretty much unreadable?

"retina-like functionality" ?? GAG ME WITH A SPOON !!

Now that I've had my buzzword-revulsion attack, 4Dwm has no problem with the display but Windows sure does. And Loonix. Too bad Irix is not modern :( It takes about fifteen minutes to adjust everything in Indigo Magic.

In actual use, mia has one that he likes for text because his eyes are good and you can fit a lot on-screen. Otherwise, for a lot of uses, the high resolution is not an advantage. I mean, Thunderbird, who cares ? But for photos and some graphics it's absolutely another world. It's a little bit of a pain in the ass sometimes - for example,a screenshot when shipped to the rest of the world is huge. Or a 1024 x 768 jpeg imported is kinda dinky. Very sharp but dinky.

But for playing with photos off the camera, there's nothing like it. Not on an SGI, anyhow. We don't have thunderthighs, hdmi, any of that crap. And I've noticed that Classy takes photos occasionally, so ...

If someone were to experiment with those dvi-to-whatever adapters and get a current high-res screen working on V12, it'd make a nice addition to the hardware list. A high-res flat panel you could buy in a store would be great.

hmm.... i don't think the interface of anything graphics related will be usable at this kind of resolution. sure, content will look crisp but a photoshop, maya, illustrator, lightroom interface? or anything else that comes with lots of icons or narrow sliders for that matter.

aaaaaanyway, that's a pretty nice fuel the OP has here. wish i'd have had something like that back in the day. :)

I'll get you a screenshot shortly ... at this moment doing a ground-up rebuild in the vain hope of getting this O350 p.o.s. to be even a little bit reliable. But I can tell you right now, you're mistaken. Indigo Magic sings at high resolutions :D
