Up on Skype with popcorn as I see the results coming in....

This one is a piece of history for Pro Tools Native.

Since I already know all of Steve's numbers he'll be posting, I can definitely state this is quite the breakthrough and milestone for Pro Tools Native.

K everybody here is the results from my first overclocking session last night. the tweaking is all under spec, nothing outlandish and honestly i still have more headroom, but feel comfortable between voltages and temperature. simply stated.....i for the next few days am the Dverb champ!!!! regardless we can see the power of these machines now and the potential they give us...

24 bit 48k / cpu usage max available / DAE settings stock / RTAS Erors UNCHECKED / start with 48 tracks, all record enabled, then aux's using only first 5 insert points A-E / recording 5 min min. / all tests have been performed multiple times to check for consistency. / pro tools 8.0 / xp sp3

New Dverb with multi (hyper) threading OFF

64 HW Buffer / 238
1024 HW Buffer / 312
-------------------------------
New Dverb with multi (hyper) threading ON

64 HW Buffer / 344..........
1024 HW Buffer / 409
-------------------------------

now for a comparison of our past machines

Old Dverb with multi (hyper) threading OFF

64 HW Buffer / 429
1024 HW Buffer / 543

NOW FOR THE KICKER...................................

Old Dverb with multi (hyper) threading ON

64 HW Buffer / 543
1024 HW Buffer / 628
------------------------------------

tried a couple at 44.1k and could get WAY more than this!!

we have added a second bottle neck to our list though.....hard drives...UGGHHH

after oc'ing multi threading seems more stable for some reason. noticably punchier and faster response time. though all but the 8 core selection is greyed out.

it was a long night last night, the results are amazing though ehh??

Default Re: i7 Builds - Specs and Results

hi guys, New to the group. I just built a core i7 machine . . .

core i7 920
PT6 Deluxe
6 GB DDR3 1600 (Corsair Dominator)
GeForce 9800 GTX(G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express
(2) 150GB WD 10,000 rpm Velociraptor HD
(1) 600GB WD 7200 rpm HD

I tried the DVERB test at 64 buffer last night at 44.1 and was able to only get 210 dverbs (with DVERB2) . . . from some of the things I am reading on here, I should be able to get many more. I am running a fresh instal of PT 8 (though I had installed BFD and Mtron before I tried the DVerb test) and WinXp Service Pack 3 . . . is there something I am not doing to optimize my setup?

Thanks,

Justin

From what I gather, if you are getting 210 Dverbs at a 64 buffer using the new Dverb, that is pretty darn good! What were you getting at a 1024 buffer?

at this point i would be happy with an ilok that is not full of junk licenses!! at this point i actually need to buy a second ilok, transfer all the good licenses to it and have an ilok for junk.....pretty sad.

this is actually my 2nd time for having the dverb record i had it a few years back on the opteron systems for quite a while (with a lowly 140 something)

actually that is not the concern, the issue is knowing what the most powerful and more importantly stable machines on the market that we can afford to assemble. a lot of the part decision in my i7 was finding the cheapest parts available of quality. i figured out last night that i have just over 700$ into my i7 when reusing most of the parts from my q6600!! with time this will only drop.

hey albee i would be glad to help you with anything you need and willing to spend a couple hours on the phone or whatever we need to get you going. you are a great asset around here and anything you need should be taken care of.

but 1 issue now is the variable between systems. most of us are going after the same processor, but the ram and motherboard are the 2 biggest variables in the system. the bios in each board will also be laid out differently as well for tweaking in and making sure settings such as voltages and timings are correct. honestly sticking with parts that are tested and people have working and are giving help with i think is the best way to go. let the pioneers like me, sunburst, mykhal, shane, and others waste our time and money on finding parts (and OHHHH the time....) we can offer better support that way!
