General Compute Performance for the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8800/4800 v3 Product Families

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families.

General purpose workloads, such as SPECint*2006, characterize compute, memory, and software characteristics which serve as a yardstick for a very wide variety of server usages such as compression, compilation, AI, gene sequencing, and many other integer-based applications workloads. The measured or published results help IT decision makers create a first-level assessment of various server options, analyze consolidation opportunities, do capacity planning and assess the valuation of the services offered.

General Compute with SPECint_rate_base2006*

This CPU-intensive benchmark suite, stressing a system's processor, memory subsystem, and compiler, provides a comparative measure of compute-intensive performance across the widest practical range of hardware using workloads developed from real user applications. Rate results measure the throughput of multiple tasks. The metrics are based on a geometric mean of normalized ratios. CINT2006 is for measuring and comparing compute-intensive integer performance across 12 throughput workloads or tasks (nine use C and three use C++).

Product and Performance Information

1

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.

2

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3

Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

4

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
