AIDA64

 

AIDA64 memory bandwidth benchmarks (Memory Read, Memory Write, and Memory Copy) measure the maximum achievable memory data transfer bandwidth.

Memory bandwidth for the 7048GR-TR Workstation is looking very good. Although these are not huge increases of bandwidth, the 7048GR-TR Workstation is showing strong bandwidth numbers. Again, we see all motherboards using the new C612 chipset and Haswell-EP processors are performing very close to each.

 

 

LINPACK

 

Intel Optimized LINPACK Benchmark is a generalization of the LINPACK 1000 benchmark. It solves a dense (real*8) system of linear equations (Ax=b), measures the amount of time it takes to factor and solve the system, converts that time into a performance rate, and tests the results for accuracy.

 

LINPACK is a measure of a computer's floating-point rate of execution ability and measured in GFLOPS (Floating-point Operations per Second); ten-billion FLOPS = ten GFLOPS. LINPACK is a very heavy compute application that can take advantage of the new AVX2 instruction. As it puts a very high load on the system, it is also a good stress test program.

LINPACK running on dual E5-2699 v3 processors is very impressive, and shows strong bandwidth numbers. This is the highest LINPACK GFLOPS results we have recorded; 885 GFLOPS is very impressive. These speeds, coupled with fast DDR4, should give a real boost to application performance.

 

 

Geekbench - Stream

 

Geekbench 3 is Primate Labs' cross-platform processor benchmark, with a new scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and new workloads that simulate real-world scenarios. It also includes STREAM based memory tests which we will include on our reviews.

Here we are looking at the single-core STREAM memory tests. Bandwidth is about where it would be expected for single-core applications.

Now we are looking at multi-core STREAM tests. The speeds we are seeing are a little faster than advertised bandwidths for our Crucial Memory kits, which shows these new X10 platforms from Supermicro can squeeze out fast memory bandwidth.
