SPEC CPU2006v1.2


SPEC CPU2006v1.2 measures compute intensive performance across the system using realistic benchmarks to rate real performance.




This benchmark has many different commands to use depending on what the user is looking for. For our tests, we used basic commands that run a full test.


Here, you can see the SPEC scores after full runs for Integer (int) and Floating Point (fp) tests.

Single-core runs show how fast (speed) a CPU can perform a given task. In the multi-core runs, we set SPEC CPU2006v1.2 to use all threads to measure the throughput of the system.


The additional cores/threads of this system has a huge impact on performance in these tests and really shows the amount of horsepower that a dual-socket system has over a single-socket board


Single-threaded results are still very important, but when you need lots of those to run, moving to a dual-socket setup is the way to go.


In the CPU2006 tests, we start to see the TYAN board showing its strengths with slightly higher results across the board.


Let's look at each part of this test to see where the strengths are.




Looking at the results of single-threaded integer runs, we can get an idea of speed at which the Intel Xeon E5-2670s can crunch through the different integer tests. Not all CPUs are equal here, and ones that have a higher speed will perform these tests faster. In this case, this is the stock speed of the Intel Xeon E5-2670s. Naturally, using an overclocked system or CPUs with a higher stock speed will generate higher results.


We see very good single-threaded integer results here on all tests.




Now, we run the test using all 32 threads of the dual Intel Xeon E5-2670s to measure the throughput of the system. In this test, more cores/threads will have a greater effect on the outcome.


We can see a big difference here using the dual-socket setup, with a three to four times performance boost in many cases.


The multi-threaded integer tests results are like the single-threaded integer results. The TYAN board is proven to be a strong leader in the integer tests.




Just like the integer tests, we now run the floating-point tests in single (speed) mode. The lower clock speeds of the Intel Xeon E5-2670s holds this benchmark back, compared to single-socket setups like those using the Intel 4771 have.


In single-threaded floating-point tests, the TYAN board has a good lead here.




Here, we see the results of the multi-threaded floating-point run that uses all 32 threads of the dual Intel Xeon E5-2670s. Like the multi-threaded integer test, more cores/threads will have a greater impact on the test.


Some parts of this test have the two dual-CPU systems very close to each other, while in a few other parts, the TYAN takes the lead. Both dual-CPU boards used the same CPUs and memory to run these tests.
