This is my first thread ever, I just hooked up my 12mb voodoo2's into a dell poweredge 2300 server and got 120fps @ 1024 in the donut demo, then i tried it on my single processor and got about 60, the weird thing is i had the same fresh xp installs on both,

Server Specs

Two Pentium 3 1400 133x10.5 @ 1050mhz 100x10.5
Two Upgradeware T-Slot Adapters

or

One Celeron 1400 100x14 @ 1400mhz 100x14
One Upgradeware T-Slot Adapter
One Slot Terminator Card

1gb sdram unregistered
PERC SCSI RAID w/16mb cache
36gb western digital scsi hdd
scsi cdrom
ati onboard 2mb 1024x768 MAX
3com nic
Sound Blaster live Value

desktop specs
One SL6BY Pentium 3 1400 133x10.5 @ 1400mhz 133x10.5
512x2 DDR memory OCZ
PCCHIPS M700MR with 2 ddr and 2 sdram slots
Matrox G400 Dualhead
Audigy 2 with firewire
Intel Nic

So i guess my question is wouldnt the processor with the higher clockspeed give higher framerates if their was no smp support. Im gunna put a single 1400 in and see if i still see the higher framerates. What is a normal fps running the donut demo in sli. Also i herd someware that this serverboard has something called concurrent pci or something i have no idea. I hope someone reads this, ill post pictures tomorrow if anyone cares.
