    for those who have been waiting to find out how the most expected new AMD CPU Architecture (Bulldozer) is performing, here are some real tests. No more rumors

    text is relevant..the charts are a little confusing.

    The new i7-3xxx is on sale ~$1000 and a new chipset + 4 channel RAM.
    Also the "new" Sandy Bridge i7-2700k.

    Revit on a VMWare setup

    First I like to say that I am new to this forum and thank you for all of the great info.
    I was looking through the posts and could not find any examples of someone running REVIT on a VMWare machine.
    I'm thinking about it and wondering if anyone had some experiences.

    Thank you in advance.

    Somebody posted a pretty good review of using Revit with VMWare...but I cannot find it, I had even sent the web link to our IT guy since he has been considering the same thing. From what I recall it does require pretty specific server requirements.

    IMO and experience with working with a "cloud" enviroment.

    Memory is the limiting factor here. Our coud boxs have dual xeon with 48GB of RAM. We never come near using all the CPU power even with 20 users on one box. I am not sure how this affects VMware though. 20 users is about the max you can get with 48GB ram. But this depends on your project size. Workstation RAM allowances should still be used to calculate the RAM needs.
    18 users online in the screen capture. 2011-11-21_1026 - Alex_Cunningham's library

    Second is the hard drive on the server. The faster the better here for load times. But this depends on where your local files are pointed to and how the network is setup.


    IMO virtual/remote is the best way to service a multi office firm. One central location for data and remote users is working very well.

    How the new 6cores sandybridge compare with the old 6 core I7 and with 4 core sandybridge 2600K. Mentalray Max 2011. I think is relevant for Revit also (the rendering part)..
    In the picture, the smaller the better.

    This is also a very different point of view vs the chart showed here http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-M-JTvjgQbQ.../cpu-bench.jpg
    where the focus wasn`t for rendering performance (the difference is to big there between 6 core versions).

    Hi guys,
    I'm about to buy a Dell M6600. One question: Do you experience the difference in performance between the processor i7-2860QM and i7-2960XM?
    2860 it seems to have enough power...
    thanks!

    Without any first hand experience with either CPU, I┤d guess that you would only actually notice while rendering.
