I am plotting on dual xeon 2440 right now with 96gigs of ram and the performance is quite horrible tbh.
yours should be better, but the low frequence the xenons are running ruining the plot speed.
i need about 20 hrs for a plot on a 970 evo plus and wd sn550 nvme and 21-22hrs on a exos raid0 hardware raid with a perc 710 mini controller.
but - if you do a bit of experimenting these things can plot many plots in parralel, so thats a big plus. even with the low frequence i am plotting about 12-18 plots a day… but there are definitely more efficient ways of plotting.
1 plot per core is fine if you have the I/O to match since much of the process is single-threaded. With 2x2TB NVMe, you probably do. 2.3GHz Haswell cores are slow compared to modern high-clockrate CPUs, but not that much slower.
dont know which server you have, but i could regulate my fanspeeds via idrac if it would be working, 12th poweredge idrac issue… my temps are around 40-60°C with 100% load, so much regulation would not be possible anyway.
thank you, i had read your post before.
I am having the opportunity to buy a Haswell Xeon so based on your post, it won’t be good enough.
The interesting though is that the YT video I posted earlier, the guy claims he plots 40/day, which is definitely good enough for me if I could achieve thhat.
