[THIN] Re: Which way to go...

What would be the "depends"?  I understand some workloads may benefit from
two physical cpus vs a dual-core.  Any other considerations?  Are there
particulars in the architecture (assume AMD) that would factor into the
equation?

It "depends", but without details (including overall price), yes.

So....would you take a single dual core CPU over a dual CPU configuration?

With AMD the answer hands-down is dual-core.  See HP for a benchmark paper
that shows a dual core AMD out-producing a dual proc of the exact same
specs
in the same chassis - they were showing that at iForum last year.  With
Intel, the improvement in using dual-core over dual proc is much less - but
it is an improvement.

It all has to do with memory and busses.

All,

If you were buying new server, would you go a dual CPU setup or a single
dual-core?  Why?  I am specing out our new server platform.  I've read all
sorts of benchmarks and such, but they all tend to pit a dual core vs a
single CPU.  Not quite a fair matchup.
