ASUS RS520-E8-RS8 Barebones Server Review

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




AIDA64 memory tests show the RS520-E8-RS8 server using Quad-Channel memory has good memory bandwidth.




Stream is a benchmark that is widely used to measure memory bandwidth. We are just starting to use this benchmark, so we do not have any other systems to compare to. We will be using this benchmark on all our reviews in the future.




The Stream results show good memory bandwidth, which should provide plenty of performance to handle any storage server needs.




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.




The RS520-E8-RS8 server again is showing average bandwidth and compares with the Stream results.




Geekbench 3 is a processor benchmark that uses single-core and multi performance simulating real-world scenarios.




In Geekbench, we see strong scores in both single and multi-threaded scores. Just like in the past benchmarks, we are again seeing average results for the RS520-E8-RS8 server.
