AIDA64

 

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

AIDA64 memory tests show the TD350's memory bandwidth is on par with other systems we have tested.

 

 

LinX

 

The 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.

The LINPACK results for the TD350 are rather low compared to other systems' scores. We believe this is because of the power saving features of the TD350. LINPACK puts a very heavy load on the system, which is something a server like the TD350 would rarely see.

 

We would also suggest using tri-channel memory in the TD340 to bring this score up to par with the RD340.

 

 

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 in the average range, and matches up to our AIDA64 memory tests.

Now we are looking at multi-core STREAM tests. The TD350 is able to achieve very good multi-core bandwidth results with the E5-2620 v3 processors and DDR4 memory. This will help in high I/O related tasks that the TD350 might see in deployment.
