  1. Agreed.

    Just a few things to consider:

    • does BenchMate work with legacy systems? (talking WinXP and much older)
    • does BenchMate require external dependencies that might hurt performance?
    • does BenchMate cause a higher CPU load than CPU-Z? (opening the latter can sometimes be harder than passing Spi 32M)

  2. Now that mainstream CPUs from both sides get 16 cores, wouldn't it be the right time to ask ourselves if we actually need to split CPU globals per number of cores?

    Back when the split was introduced, there were maximum three relevant classes (1,2,4) with a HUGE difference in between. But these days you have at least fourteen (1/2/3/4/5/6/8/10/12/14/16/18/24/32) and it doesn't look like it's going to get any simpler with all the 'exciting' ways that manufacturers can customise their CPU layouts.

    It's starting to get very similar to situation with GPU rankings:

    • CPUs have 2/3-digit core count, GPUs have 2/3-digit ROP count
    • Given core count can be achieved by 1 or 2 cpus (or even core types), given ROP count can be achieved by 1 or 2 cards
    • It's very rare that nVidia and AMD release graphic cards with the same ROP count (or even at the same price point) to avoid direct comparisons, Intel/AMD will likely eventually get there too

    ...and I don't see anyone discussing splitting GPU ranks per ROP count "to give guys with GTX3060 a chance and make it more affordable"

  3. Please don't follow the urge to collect memory kits. Collectors are the plague of the benching community. Items made in low volumes are hard to find as they are, and people who let them fall apart in their drawers to satisfy their ego aren't exactly helping.

  4. If that's a 9-11-9 kit then it's built from whatever garbage they had laying around at that time.

    Most likely T-series PSC.
    Might also be X-series PSC or Hynix 2Gbit BFR, but not very likely.
    If Patriot were really high on cocaine, they might have even used Elpida 2Gbit BCSE.
    Virtually no chance for Hypers or BBSE.
