10:41 <Migi32> what is a FLOP actually? There are many floating point instructions, and I imagine + is way faster than /

10:42 <Migi32> and Intel even has a sqrt floating point instruction

11:03 <desti> i think it's mul

11:46 <PovAddict> Migi32: a useless way to measure CPU speed, that many people refuse to admit it's useless

11:48 <Migi32> PovAddict, well it beats MIPS. What do you think is a better measure?

21:28 <MTughan> 'lo nickuwo

21:58 <PovAddict> can you name an Intel CPU model and an AMD CPU model that are roughly equivalent in speed?

22:01 <MTughan> Me?

22:01 <Romulus> I guess Me is what turned me to OSX, MTughan

22:01 <MTughan> forget me

22:01 <Romulus> 10-4, MTughan.

22:01 <MTughan> I have no idea what AMD specs are like.

22:01 <MTughan> And equivalency depends on the benchmark you use.

22:01 <PovAddict> anyone who's here :P

22:01 <PovAddict> I mean order-of-magnitude equivalent

22:02 <MTughan> I believe AMD processors have historically been faster at FP than Intel, and vice versa for ints.

22:05 <PovAddict> I just want to make a point... BOINC grouping GPUs into nvidia and ati is like saying a Pentium I 33MHz and a Core Duo are equivalent, while <insert Intel CPU here> and <insert AMD CPU here> are not

22:06 <MTughan> There's another place where they differ.

22:06 <PovAddict> but I don't know enough about hardware to fill in those <things> with similar-enough CPUs :P

22:06 <MTughan> Nvidia's slightly faster at single precision, but ATI has a massive advantage with current hardware in double precision.

22:06 <MTughan> I don't know how GF100 compares.

22:07 <PovAddict> but you can have two nvidia cards with very different speeds

22:07 <PovAddict> and BOINC isn't prepared for that

22:07 <MTughan> But the Nvidia cards can be compared to other Nvidia cards better than Nvidia to ATI.
