AIDA64

 

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

Memory bandwidth for the R2208WT2YS server is improved over many of our systems we have tested and shows good memory write numbers.

 

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), 10 billion FLOPS = 10 GFLOPS. Linpack is a very heavy compute application that can take advantage on the new AVX2 instruction. As it puts a very high load on the system, it is also a good stress test program.

In Linpack, the R2208WT2YS server is showing average bandwidth numbers, but still has strong numbers even running at lower power.

 

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 showing improved numbers for the R2208WT2YS server.

Now we are looking at multi-core STREAM tests. The R2208WT2YS server is turning out to be well suited for multi-threaded memory bandwidth results in this test.
