Files that help describe the problem:
The HP xw9400 workstation was based on two dual-core AMD Opteron 2220E 2.8GHz microprocessors mounted on a custom HP motherboard supported by an NVIDIA chipset. The system arrived with 2GB of DDR-2 667MHz registered ECC RAM that is expandable to a remarkable 64GB in the eight DIMM slots provided. At Cadalyst’s request, the HP xw9400 arrived with 32-bit Windows XP and Service Pack 2 installed, although the system is available with several operating system options—among them 64-bit Windows, Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 4 (64-bit) and 32- or 64-bit Red Hat Linux. HP notes that the xw9400 is Windows Vista ready.
Graphics on the HP xw9400 system were powered by an NVIDIA FX 3500 graphics card, and NVIDIA drivers v.18.104.22.168 were preinstalled. The system has dual PCIe x16 graphics slots. That means a second matching graphics card can be installed using an SLI bridge, or four 3D non-SLI graphics configurations can be accommodated.
The hard disk included in the test system was a 160GB SATA drive, though many other configurations are available. The xw9400 has excellent expandability supported by an 800W Delta power supply. The system I/O bandwidth includes two PCIe x8 slots and two PCI-X 100 slots that can be configured as a single PCI-X 133 slot to meet some software vendor requirements. Six-channel serial ATA and eight-channel serial attached SCSI are integrated, and the system also provides dual integrated gigabit LAN-on-motherboard.
I tested the HP xw9400 with AutoCAD 2005 using Service Pack 1 and the Cadalyst Labs C2006 benchmark, which returned a total index score of 143. With MAXBench 4 running under Autodesk 3ds Max 8 with Service Pack 3 installed, the system generated an averaged high/low score of 65.63 with the default system-level graphics driver and 145.31 using NVIDIA’s MAXtreme v.8.00.03.
