(Answer) (Category) distributed.net Faq-O-Matic : (Category) Statistics, Graphs, and other Statsbox things : (Category) Client speeds database pages. : (Answer) What about benchmarks of multiprocessor machines?
The speed pages also provide the ability to enter the benchmarks of multiprocessor machines. However, keep in mind that the keyrate of any individual processor within a multi-processor machine will generally be comparable to that of identical MHz single-processor machine. As such, the overall speed for a multiprocessor machine is generally merely the speed of one processor multiplied by the number of processors within that machine.

The primary purpose of the separate multi-processor speed listing is to provide a single page that summarizes the types and speeds of the available multi-processor machines on the market against each other. Also many casual users simply aren't familiar with the availability/limits of specific processor counts for different architectures, and these multi-processor speed pages gives those users a convenient place to find that information.

Please keep in mind that the benchmark speed reported by the client is always for one processor! When submitting the speed for a multi-processor machine, you will need to manually multiply the single-processor before entering the speed within the submission form.
