I need to setup a server. The platform is planned to be Red Hat Linux 9.
A lot of computer simulation works will be done on the server.
I'm now choosing the processor for the server.
Should it be:
[A] 2 x Intel Xeon 2.8/512 - dual processors
[B] 1 x Intel Xeon 2.8/512 + 1 x Intel Xeon 2.4/512 - dual processors
[C] 1 x Intel Xeon 3.06/512 - single processor
[D] 1 x Intel Pentium4 3.X - single processor
Which is the fastest and which is the slowest?
Hope to get the idea of how the speed/performance be arranged accordingly from the fastest to the slowest.
By the way, what will be the other suggestions besides the list above?
Can Red Hat Linux 9 supports those processors?
P/S: One of my major target product is DELL PowerEdge 1600SC server.
