Core 2 Duo E6400 as a server CPU?

Core 2 Duo E6400 as a server CPU?

How would the performance be? I am not too sure what is the equivalent of this CPU to say the i5/i7 family or the Xeon family. Is it going to be a decent Windows remote desktop workstation? Thanks.

    For personal use you should be fine. Rule of thumb for me is never use consumer hardware in an enterprise setting. ;)

  • No money and no time to start a successful online business like SecureDargon (and perhaps no knowledge as well) :p

    So here is my noob question, what exactly is this E6400 CPU (or this family of CPU in general), is it like a generation before or after the i3 and i5 stuff came out or it is just a cheaper equivalent of them?

    How does it compare to, say, the new Intel Atom CPUs then? About the same?

    The power from a older chip is typically more, so I would try and go newer.

    But performance-wise?

    The Core 2 Duo would be better.

    (I know the benchmark test isn't 100% accurate, but it's still a rough guide...)

  • DamianDamian Member

    Performance-wise, it'll be fine for a Windows remote desktop workstation.

    Will it be remote desktop over the internet?

    The CPU isn't the newest, but for the most stuff in the private area it's more than enough. CPU should be 2-3x like an Atom. And of course remember, that for many application the i/o is an important thing to recognize, too, so the decicated will be faster than a vps even if the vps has a better cpu, since it has dedicated i/o. On dedicated servers you should always know that you have dedicated performance!

    Yes, the DC is more than 1000km away from me.... The thing is, I have some data scraping program that I need to run on Windows (written in VB.NET and C#.NET) and send to the MS-SQL DB that is sitting on the same machine, the data scraped, on average, would be just around 1000 rows a day to start with, with more to come afterwards....

    Do you think this machine could handle that?

    Yeah, that'll be more RAM-dependent than CPU-dependent. How much ram will this system have? Since it's a desktop processor, standard RAM will be cheaper, so I'd recommend at least 4gb.

    I don't know what we're talking about so I'm just going to agree with this and say the following generic lines:

    GoDaddy is the evil empire!

    Hostgator should get better security!

    I think all the regular hosting companies here are awesome!

  • Slow CPU you can find a lot better CPU models in the same price range.

    If you got it for free - it's good. If you need to pay for it - tell us what will you pay, and maybe we can point you to better options.

  • not free, but very cheap, 30 bucks a month, DC is in Dallas.

    For $30 you could probably find a decent VPS that will suit your application, and would have more reliability (RAID vs a single drive). Granted getting a VPS with 400GB space would be hard, but you probably don't need all that space anyway.

  • Not going to be a killer performance-wise, but should be better than the cheapest atoms out there.

    I had one c2d 2140 sitting at home, overclocked at 100% (from 1.6GHz to 3.19GHz), working 24/7 for 2 years :D
