Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Congratulations!
Would also love to see some type of performance numbers (CPUid or Passmark benchmarks).
Curious to know how much power are you using idle/full speed.

I built something quite small, efficient (50W idle), quiet and somewhat powerful few months ago ( https://futures.io/tech-support/36604-skylake-x100-z170-ddr4-6.html#post557800 ). I love it, and I can run 4 4K monitors with a Quadro K1200 (although I'm just running a couple of monitors now).

Thanks for sharing your build.

I saw your build. Very neat!

I have never run a benchmark tool before but I am very curious to see what kind of numbers this machine will produce. I will try and get you the numbers using the tools you mentioned sometime this weekend.

Thanks.

So I ran Passmark benchmark. The results are below. The CPU test gets a 99% percentile rating. My AMD 8350 (no overclock) gets a 75% rating. I am feeling pretty good about putting in all those hours researching and putting together the Xeon system

Xeon Results:

AMD CPU only result:

Adding this comparison chart from PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End. I am feeling pretty good about my choice vs the i7s.

Thanks for sharing. Those are incredible results.

Your CPU mark is out of this world. I didn't know they were so powerful.

I think if you put an NVMe SSD m.2 your machine may fly!

Look at the impact of an m.2 on my overall results (i7-6700K with an m.2 memory and Quadro K1200 on a 4K monitor)

All of this in a very small case, no noticeable noise, and 120W consumption at full power (around 50W idle). My office is too small (9'x9'), heat and noise would create a very uncomfortable place to work 14 hour days!

Wow! I almost bought the samsung m.2 drive but I was already spending way more than I wanted to. Maybe later on, I might still do it and move my database over.

There is nothing I can do about the RAM. I have overclocked mine to 1866 and thats the max I can go.

I left my K1200 in my old machine. This one is using a GTX 960 to run three 40" 4K monitors at 60Hz just fine. I am sure the K1200 is going to perform better but as long as I can see my charts, it should not be a problem.

Nice! What sort of performance improvements do you notice? Are you able to utilize all the cores? I'm in a similar predicament and about to build a Xeon setup.

I moved my system over and brought it up for the first time. During startup, my system reads a lot of data from a SQL Server database and the file system. I managed to capture a screenshot to confirm that all cores were being used at that time. I can tell that my system load time is cut in half, if not more. I am hoping that I get similar results when the system is dealing with real-time market data.

EDIT: NxCore API utilizes only 1 thread when reading tape files. When I ran one of my programs that only uses the NxCore API, I could see that a single thread was being used while it accessed the downloaded tapes. SQL Server reads use all 32 threads.
