@K-L

I thought his main concern was with the P5020 model?

@BigD

No was concern that the killer app use only one core of the x5000/20 on two and one core of X5000/40 on four

@BigD

LOL. Well you have to do more than that. On any Workbench a must have is ClickToFront. People use Amigas without it. I don't know how they survive. And of course there's the usual use Workbench to load up DirOpus and avoid Workbench from then on. Apart from that it is nice to run 68K apps directly with a double click and see it use the resources from the native OS4 OS. Then there is screen dragging and cross screen icon dragging. A night on the town there. I've tried the "cheaper" AmigaOS clones but the look and feel just isn't there. It's not the same. So expensive yes but it also feels like the real thing.

@outrun1978

I prefer to run 68k "natively" as possible and then use RunInUAE (or any other UAE) as a fallback. I would like to see a UAE build that redirects OS calls to native OS4 calls. So would be like OS4 68k emulation but sandboxed in a way. Fuller Amiga emulation but making use of OS4 resources and screens natively.

Yeah, obviously with no SMP yet 3 cores are wasted on the P5040 and 1 core on the P5020 but I though with your Linux experience you said the Ram speed on the P5020 was ridiculously slow and the P5040 was quite a bit better and nearly at G5 Quad speeds?

@BigD

ram speed is little better on p5040 compared the p5020 but ... bad compared the quad g5

Just for remember the quad have ddr2 (4200j) 533mhz rams, x5000 ddr3 1600 rams

@BigD

As you can see on the cpu performances Post

And on ram performances post

The P5040 have good integer value but where it is really bad is on ram transfer value and this is what im say from very beginning the ram value is to much bad i was expecting better performances compared the G5 but was not like this. this slow ram made system on linux choppy but dont gave issue on AmigaOS who is much more light OS compared linux

About fpu on blender benchmark
P5020 need 1 m 19s to render 2T
P5040 need 42s to render 4T
G5 Quad need 23s to render 4T

Thanks for benchmarks!

FPU speed is not that bad (cca 70 % of 970MP performance per MHz), but integer speed is clearly the strong side of e5500.


I still suspect slow GFX card drivers as primary suspect of "choppy" Linux experience.

yes it was what i reported to a-eon in my one year experience "cpu perform well" the bad is on ram performances plus pcie performing really bad "you can check on hans website too x5000 goes bad compared the sam460 with same gpu.

note on linux x5000 is setup with the kernel parameter radeon.pcie_gen2=1 on g5 i cant because gen 1.


note2: now on quad im using my x5000 ssd with ubuntu mate .. and look like another level

you can check on hans website too x5000 goes bad compared the sam460 with same gpu


Both of those systems provide four PCI-E lanes to their video card slots, the SAM 460 is Gen1.1 PCI-E while the X5000 is Gen2 PCI-E.
SO, the X5000 has TWICE the bandwidth of the SAM460 devoted to video.

I totally respect Han de Ruiter, BUT the X5000 has the potential to complete dust the SAM460 or Tabor in respect to video card performance.

And, from what I've seen from Freescale's documentation, the P5020 and P5040 have a MUCH higher potential memory bandwidth than the current benchmarks for the X5000 are producing.
This would lead me to conclude that there are firmware issues that can be improved upon.

In any case, except for possibly the X1000, the X5000 should outperform ALL previous OS4 platforms from Eyetech AmigaOnes, to the Pegasos2, as well as the SAM440 and SAM460.

AND, AmigaOS (or for that matter MorphOS) is NOT available for PCI-E G5 PowerMac.
Further, the X5000 was not designed primarily as a Linux platform.
Also, while I use my quad G5 for Linux, my Ryzen based X64 PC would make a MUCH better platform for Linux.

IF we are to continue to post benchmarks of unsupported hardware, would you care for me to post Ryzen 1800X benchmarks for comparison to your G5 benchmarks?
I can assure you, the disparity would be as high (and in many cases HIGHER) than what you are showing with your X5000/G5 comparisons.

To conclude, we AREN'T a Linux forum. I'm sorry you didn't get the support you think you were due from Aeon or AmigaKit. BUT I'd be willing to bet that they'd offer you a full refund to STFU and go away.

This is an Amiga forum, the X5000 AmigaOne IS an Amiga computer, and some of us would like to see the SOLE company producing AmigaOne systems survive and prosper.
And, btw, I think Matt Leaman is a bit of a knob myself (not as bad as some players in the market, but support is not his forte).
But I have known Paul Gentle longer than I've known Trevor Dickinson, and I hold both of them in the highest regard.
AND, we in the US are lucky enough to have Aaron Smith at Amiga On The Lake who (unlike Matt) is GREAT at supporting his customers (both NG AND legacy).

So, if you're not with us, you're against us.
You bias before you changed your mind was as virulent as your current negative bias.
And I'm not sure I trust either position you've adopted.

Sure, the quad G5 has a few advantages. But I own one, and I'm STILL looking forward to owning an X5000/40.

MemCopy

This is a series of tests to measure the speed at which data can be copied between main memory (RAM) and graphics card RAM (VRAM). A lot of graphics are not generated by the graphics card itself, but are images or videos loaded from disk or downloaded from the internet. With videos in particular, the transfer speed of data to the graphics card is an important factor.

The following memory copy tests are performed:

Copy to VRAM - A block of data is copied from RAM to VRAM. In this test, this task is performed by the CPU with no DMA

WritePixelArray - A block of data is copied from main memory (RAM) to VRAM using the Operating System's (OS') graphics library. The graphics may or may not use DMA in order to accelerate the copy operation

Copy from VRAM - A block of data is copied from VRAM to RAM. In this test, this task is performed by the CPU with no DMA

ReadPixelArray - A block of data is copied from VRAM to RAM using the Operating System's (OS') graphics library. The graphics may or may not use DMA in order to accelerate the copy operation

The MemCopy score is the weighted sum of the tests listed above. The CPU based tests are both multiplied by 0.25 while WritePixelArray and ReadPixelArray are multiplied by 0.75. More importance is placed on using the graphics library's copy functions.

@Spectre660

Why is the test for the X5000 done without DMA?

The copy to vram is quite a bit higher than the SAM460, but the other figures are only on par, or slightly slower.

As the bandwidth of the video slot is higher, the figures of the X5000 should be higher than this, which would leave me to conclude that DMA is a significant issue.

When you combine this higher bandwidth with the much better integer performance of the P5020, there should be a bigger performance disparity.

BTW - The X1000 figures are petty outstanding. Copying to and from vram is a bit slow, but those figures for MemCopy and Write/read pixel array? Wow!

16 PCI-E lanes, even if they are only Gen1 really seem to make a big difference. This should give the X1000 a two fold improvement over the X5000, and a four fold improvement over the SAM460 in overall bandwidth.

@Beans

i dint compared a G5 or X5000 with a Ryzen ... is like compare a fiat 500 (g5) piaggio Ape (X5000) with the last lamborghini (Ryzen)
