Technical Compute with 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.

Technical computing is the application of the mathematical and computational principles of scientific computing to solve practical problems of industrial interest. The distinction between technical computing and scientific computing is similar to the distinction between high-performance computing and high-performance technical computing. Technical computing may involve the use of large-scale high-performance systems.

Floating Point Throughput with SPECfp*_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. CFP2006 is for measuring and comparing compute-intensive floating point performance across 17 workloads or tasks.  For more information please visit: www.spec.org/cpu2006.

Open MP performance with SPECompG_base2012*

Containing a suite of 14 end-user applications that focuses on parallel computing performance using the OpenMP parallelism standard, this benchmark is based on compute-intensive applications that emphasize the performance of the computer processor, memory architecture, parallel support libraries, and the compilers. The performance metric shown is calculated from the geometric mean of 14 normalized ratios when the applications are compiled with consistent compiler options across all programs of a given language (eight use Fortran, five use C, and one uses C++). For more information please visit: http://spec.org/omp2012/.

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.
