PCMark Vantage *is* multiCPU compatible - it just happens to have benchmark loads that are designed to mimic desktop use. Dual CPU Xeon = server/workstation.
As for future products, we haven't announced anything yet but watch this space...
yeah it recognise the threads but it use only one CPU (4 cores) for the hole test.
i can not understand eg. in the first test why do we have to use one 2 threads??
Every program from the 2007 and after it use 4 cores minimum??
i thing that u should set in every test to use the maximum power for every pc-server-workstations.
You have enable the 16 thread in Gaming 2 but i see that they dont count at all... im getting the same results if i have 16 or 8 threads enable no different at all.
i know maybe its pathetic but when u spent money for an SR-2 for example or for a dual Slot machine u expect full compatibility from latest and greatest benchmark platforms
dont u aggree?
Being it on Intel or AMD single core CPU's. A lucky run get's you through (though I've doen 20 runs yesterday and each one locked up) I patched windows fully, tried 5 different ATI drivers. It has to be some cache issue or sortlike. I would liek to now if the Gaming tests were run first and then the rest if the lockups would still occur...
Sorry, don't have any news on this - we haven't been able to reproduce the issue. You do state that "most" people in specific competition had this issue. Any information on their hardware configurations would be useful - we do not have very large pool of single core machines around any more, so information that would narrow down the specific configuration that causes this would be useful.
