Are There any Bottlenecks on My P.C.s ?

  1. Feb 18, 2010 #1
    My 1st pc is Pentium D 820 which is Dual Core . It has 512 KB DDR Ram (PC3200) & speed of CPU is 200Mhz x 14= 2.8 GHz . When I ran Everest Ultimate Edition on my P.C. , it gives the following information :

    CPU Physical Info :
    Package Type = 775 Contact LGA
    Process Technology = 7M , 90 nm , CMOS , Cu , Low-K Inter-Layer , High-K Gate ,Strained Si
    Core Voltage = 1.3 V
    I/O Voltage = 1.3 V
    Typical Power = 95 W @ 2.8 GHz
    Maximum Power = 130 W @ 2.8 GHz

    MotherBoard Info :

    MotherBoard Name = MSI865GVM3-V ((MS-7101)
    FSB Properties:
    Bus Width = 64 bits
    Real Clock = 200 Mhz (QDR)
    Effective Clock = 800 Megahertz
    Bandwidth = 6400 MB/s

    Memory Bus Properties :
    Bus Width = 64 bits
    DRam:FSB Ratio = 1
    Real Clock = 200 Mhz (DDR)
    Effective Clock = 400 Megahertz
    Bandwidth = 3200 MB/s

    Chipset Bus Properties :
    Bus Width = 8 bits
    Real Clock = 67 Mhz (QDR)
    Effective Clock = 267 Megahertz
    Bandwidth = 267 MB/s


    The 2nd P.C. is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (Dual Core) . It has 2 GB of DDR2 Memory (PC26400) & speed of CPU is 200Mhz x 13.5 = 2.7 GHz . For the Second P.C. ,Details are as following :

    CPU PhysicalInfo :

    Package Type = 940 Pin uOPGA
    Process Technology = 10Mi , 65 nm CMOS , Cu , DSL SOI
    Core Voltage = 1.1 - 1.35 V
    I/O Voltage = 1.2 V - 2.5 V
    maximum Power = 65 - 76 Watts

    MotherBoardName = Asus M2N68-AM SE2

    FSB Properties:
    Bus Type = AMD Hammer
    Real Clock = 200 Mhz
    Effective Clock = 200 Megahertz
    HyperTransport Clock = [Trial Version ]

    Memory Bus Properties :

    Bus Type = DDR2 SDRam
    Bus Width = 64 bits
    DRam:FSB Ratio = CPU/7
    Real Clock = 387 Mhz (DDR)
    Effective Clock = 775 Megahertz
    Bandwidth = [Trial Version ]

    MotherBoard Physical Info :
    CPU Sockets/slots = 1 Socket AM2+
    Expansion Slots = [Trial Version ]
    RAM Slots = 2 DDR2 RAM
    Integrated Devices = Audio , Video , Lan
    Form Factor = Micro ATX
    MotherBoard Chipset = nForce7025-630a
    MotherBoard Manufacturer = ASUSTek Computer Inc.

    1) Are there any Bottlenecks (for speed , performance , etc ) on any of these P.C.s ? If there is any more info you need , I'd be happy to give .

    2) What is the maximum physical memory that can be put on each of these p.c.s ?

    3) Also , since both CPUs are x86-64 machines but since my windows is 32 bit (Windows XP Professional SP2) , aren't these machines being under-utilized ? (Although I can understand , 64-bit windows isn't very popular since getting drivers for programs can become a problem ) .

    4) Upon running CPU-Z , Core Voltage shown on the Intel P.C. is 1.33 Volts as against 1.39 volts for the AMD machine . However RAM Voltage is 2.5 for Intel vs 1.8 for the AMD machine . Which machine must be consuming more power ?

    5) Nero System Info says there is AWRDACPI on the machines . If ACPI is installed , why am I not given any option by Windows whereby I can make settings for Windows to automatically shut down the Printer if the Printer or Scanner is idle for say n number of minutes ?
