Some Blog Errors Are Just Too Serious To Ignore. A Comparison of Intel Xeon 5400 (Harpertown) to Intel Xeon 5500 (Nehalem EP).

I’d like to direct readers to an important blog update/correction.

In my post entitled An Intel Xeon 5400 System That Outperforms An Intel 5500 (Nehalem EP) System? Believe It…Or Know It I blogged about an erroneous conclusion I had drawn about a test performed on these two processor models. I think the update does the blog post justice and it all serves as a good object lesson in how important Xeon topology is.  I must remember to practice what I preach (e.g., remain ever-aware of topology).

While on the topic, the following post remains as an example of the the type of workload that exhibits near-parity between Xeon 5400 and Xeon 5500:

Intel Xeon 5500 Nehalem: Is It 17 Percent Or 2.75-Fold Faster Than Xeon 5400 Harpertown? Well, Yes Of Course It Is!

    “Some Blog Errors Are Just To Serious To Ignore”

    Indeed. Like using “To”, instead of “Too”.
