Peace to you, Larry!               And Joy in the Lord!

After I got over a brief twinge of envy, I ended up very happy for you!          *smile*

          You must be pleased!              That's one of the most powerful machines that have been shared here!

Well-done!

That benchmark is with "hyperthreading" temporarily turned on. Theoretically higher performance but useless for gaming.

I'm a bit of a PC gamer and overclocker, but thanks to my discovery of Logos it's all being used for more Godly purposes.

What I didn't tell everyone is that my XPS 600 developed a problem with the motherboard, and I bought this new one entirely, and I hate to admit this, on credit with Dell.  I hate bills and I believe I should be debt free, but it was either have a computer or not and I chose to have one.  So all envy should remember I am owing every month.  Super Angry  Also I paid right about $2,500 for this system.  The good news is that five years ago, a top end comparable machine would be double that price.

There is always a faster machine, such as life.  The post by Thomas Bourega with a score of 1797 shows that!  Yes

I see in PCGamer that your processor is preferred for gamers since it overclocks easily.  Also your graphics card is really doing well, that's hauling!  I too am a gamer but I have never been into overclocking as it kind of makes me nervous.  Good job on your speed.  Yes

Thank you, I bought nearly every part second hand, as there's no way I could have afforded a PC like this otherwise! TBH I bought it with an annual Uni bursary, and if I had have discovered Logos then, I would have spent the money on it instead. But aw well!

Just for fun, I ran the benchmark on my file server. It is an old Socket A system with seven year old technology. I only use it for storing files and backup images but I thought it'd be fun to compare.

Dave, you asked me what is my benchmark.  As you have taken so much time to help me through problems, as well as developing the wiki method, I feel I owe it to you to find the time to try to answer your question, But can you explain to me what a benchmark is and how I go about finding it?  Confused

Hi Nicky

(Not Dave, but!)

If you look way back at the start of this thread - http://community.logos.com/forums/t/24555.aspx?PageIndex=1- you will see a link to the NovaBench benchmark utility - that is what is being discussed here.

If you download the utility at that link and run on your computer it will produce a set of benchmark numbers similar to what people are posting here.

Hope this helps

Graham

Logos runs extremely fast.  Of course, I have two SSD's in a Raid 0 configuration.  I built this computer almost 2 years ago specifically with the logos specs in mind.  Put in the SSD's over christmas-and put my original velocitiraptors (10,000 RPM) also in a Raid 0 config and use it for storage (all my docs, music, pics, basically everything but the OS and logos).

Jems;  I've wanted to do exactly what you have done with your hard drives.  That is about as good as it can get for that part of your hardware.  Ever since hard drives have been around, we have waited for them as being the slowest part of the computer.  I thought that the SSD's would have come out years ago before they have.  My system is a pair of 7200 rpm RAID 0 at 1.4 terabytes.  The write speed is 162 MB/s.  I have been thinking about after my warranty for this Dell is over, getting a couple SSD drives to boot from.

Did you overclock your CPU too?  The speed is a bit high for the 940.

 

Good job!  Yes

Yeah, I am quite impressed with the SSD's in Raid.  While the read and write times are nice, what REALLY amps this system, are the seek times, less than 1 millisecond usually. Also, on larger files, the read-write times rocket.  I think the threshold is 128k- 

When I bench my HD  with ATTO Disk Benchmark, I get these speeds transfering 128K  at doubling lengths, beginning with .5K and ending at 8192 K, overlapped I/O

Read Writes are about the same (writes are a bit faster through 128 KB (transfer size) Reads are a bit faster starting at 2048), so I'll just post 1 number for each transfer size

17 MG/s

36 MG/s

70 MG/s

162 MG/s

234 MG/s

265 MG/s

281 MG/s

287 MG/s

290 MG/s

549 MG/s

550 MG/s

551 MG/s

550 MG/s

536 MG/s

532 MG/s

When the total length of file is doubled to 256 kb, I break the 500 MB/s barrier at 64 Kb (transfer size). 

 

As for my computer, I do have it OC'd.  I have had it like this for probably a year and a half now.  I think I need to get some new ram as I believe that is holding me back from OC'ing more and still being stable.  BTW, I am on air, with my temps in the upper 20's to low 30's (cel) when it is cool, upper 30's when it is 70-80 (Fahrenheit) in my room. 

If I were you and I 1. had the money and 2. wanted to build a desktop, I'd check out the OCZ RevoDrives- or the RevoDrive X2.  They are PCI-e SSD's, the first is rated up to 540MB read, 490 MB write, the second is rated up to 740MB read, 690 MB write.  If you get the larger X2's, they rate up to 1.4 GB read an write (of course, your spending a few thousand for a 1.4 GB). All in all however, I am very happy with my system.

Jems,

I am surprised that you aren't gettting a better score than this with SSD's in RAID configuration. My score for the hard drive is 20 with just a run of the mill 500 GB Seagate drive.

Along those same lines I installed a single 40 GB SSD and installed WIndows 7 on it in a dual boot configuration  with my existing system. Though I saw my boot time cut in half I didn't see much increase in overall performance and my Benchmark on it was only 12. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed. I wiped the drive and returned it. I am beginning to think that SSD's are over rated. Or perhaps it is just the particular model I chose to try out.

On the previous page at the bottom is my score, and my hardware got a 38.  It's higher because I have a larger boot partition.  To me, that's a senseless way of scoring.  It should be entirely  on speed I think as mine is just a 1.4 terabyte 7200 rpm drive in RAID 0.  Not fast.  My Windows 7 performance test gave my drive a 5.9.  Kind of maddening when the cpu is 7.5, memory is 7.5, graphics 7.8, gaming graphics 7.8.  The Win7 test grades on disk data transfer rate which should be the same for the Novabench.  Size has nothing to do with speed.

My 2-cents worth.  ;)

That is interesting Larry. That would hold true with what I saw on the SSD I installed. It was only a 40 GB drive so the Novabench score was only 12. My WIndows index for the drive was 7.4 which would reflect the speed. I guess we should take the scores on this thread with a grain of salt. But I was still disappointed in overall performance improvements. Add to that the fact that my monitor chose to bite the dust the same day I installed the SSD and returning it was a no brainer. I can only afford so much hardware in a given month and I was not thrilled about the idea of going back to my old CRT. Also, Best Buy had an awesome sale on a 20" widescreen LCD monitor ($99). Smile

Anyhow, thanks for the eye opener on the Novabench scores.

Blessings,

Bob

If my Win7 score for my hard drive were 7.4 then my total would be in the 7's.  That's a great score for your HD and it's too bad you did not see much performance gain.  Novabench also takes into consideration the amount of RAM you have, and that has nothing to do with speed of what you DO have.  I'm not impressed with their scoring.

I still seem to get some "lag" (if that is the correct term) especially when typing notes and trying to select verse for copy even with minimal books open. Is this pretty normal?  My computer is probably a mid range computer i was just expecting it to handle Logos a little better.

 I'm not complaining, in fact i really like the program alot, and i know many could say "well you should see it on my computer".  This really the first program that i've through at this laptop that has some slowdown or lag in it

Logos 4 is a resource bear. And you SHOULD see it run on my PC!  Smile 

It's hard to quantify, but I think I noticed a nice performance bump when I increased my RAM to 8Gb. I can't tell, though, if your operating system is 64-bit or not: necessary to access any RAM you would add.

I was thinking that a RAM upgrade wouldn't hurt.  I do run Windows 7 - 64 Bit. So I probably will bump it up when i raise the necessary funds.  

That what's a blessing; I took a leap of faith that I would like the program so i jumped in with the silver base package and now that i really do like it I want to go ahead and jump up to a higher package. It just makes buying more complicated  because i am heavily invested in another Bible program that i really like also, for its good selection of resources. Now just need the money to buy more books for both programs, and get RAM. LOL!

I had heard it was something of a bear too, but i guess you never really know until you put it to good use. Thanks for the Info though, One reason that  i chose to get logos 4 was because of the forums, the videos, and the community and the ease of finding out info about the program
