Thank you for joining the Intel Community Support.
Determining the cause of the performance drop may include reviewing specific information about your setup. I would like to gather basic information about it to do further research and attempt to provide a detailed answer.
Please scan both systems using the Intel® System Support Utility. Follow the steps below:
1.Download the Intel® System Support Utility and save the application to your system:
2.Open the application and click Scan to see system and device information. The Intel® System Support Utility defaults to the Summary View on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says summary to change to Detailed View.
3.To save your scan, click Next and click Save. You can save the file to any accessible location on your computer.
4. Attach the report to this thread.
Also, are you using software to make your system work like in a cluster?
Are your systems working independently?
Thank you for showing an interest!
Please find both reports attached.
Regarding your question about clusters. I don't think so. I use them as render slaves/nodes but neither one is also operating as the repository or manager, so for example "Rush-In" does not have additional processes going on to cause the slow down in renders.
I think CPU-Z shows a clock speed drop on Rush-In so I thought that must be heat or power but Rush-Out is operating at a faster clock speed but in the same temperature zone...stranger?
Thank you for your response.
Based on the information provided about your system configuration and the reports attached, you may be experiencing hardware issues considering that overheating is not an issue.
In one of the questions you stated that you would like Rush-in back to performing well. Does that mean that you usually monitor and compare the performance of both systems? Were they delivering the same performance before you noticed the performance drop?
What you can do is basically swap hardware such as processors and video cards to check if you get the same behavior. Also, keep in mind that having identical hardware may not mean that you will receive the same performance. Please let me know if you are able to swap hardware between both systems.
Regarding the questions about Intel® XTU, I am doing further research to provide an update about it.
