These processors deliver groundbreaking performance to meet HPC challenges and scale for growth while maximizing energy-efficiency through Intel process technology.
High performance computing performance
Matrix Multiplication Based on LINPACK*
The LINPACK Benchmarks are a measure of a system's floating point computing power. Introduced by Jack Dongarra, they measure how fast a computer solves a dense n by n system of linear equations Ax = b, which is a common task in engineering.
The aim is to approximate how fast a computer will perform when solving real problems. It is a simplification, since no single number can reflect the overall performance of a computer system. Nevertheless, the LINPACK benchmark performance can provide a good correction over the peak performance provided by the manufacturer.
