I'd rather use a PIII to a Netburst machine any day simply because the latter at least consumes power in accordance with it's performance.
I happen to have one here (a ProLiant DL380 G2
w/2x 1.4 GHz Pentium III-S) and I had to install Windows XP on it to be able to run a firmware upgrade via SCSI for an older Tandberg StorageLoader. It was the only "true" i386 machine with room for a SCSI controller available to me then (and still now).
So, mr LittleCube/Hz is 2X mr OrangeBox/Hz
Impressive result! I didn't knew those PPC74xx have that much juice in them.
Sorry, no comparable results available. But I could do a openssl speed -elapsed
on OpenBSD 6.1 tomorrow as a start.
Regarding Netburst, there were a few later systems with Netburst CPUs (Xeon 7000 and 7100 series) that had cool features, like memory mirroring and/or memory hot-plug. I think of the ProLiant DL580 G3
, later systems (like the G5) no longer supported memory hot-plug. Sadly the mechanics of those hot-plug memory modules (each of them takes four DDR2 DIMMs) are bugged: it's sometimes terribly hard to unlock them and how cool is hot-plug if you can't get the module in question out of the machine?
