Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 Product Family General and Technical Compute Performance

The Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v5 product family-based entry servers are small-business servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v5 product family that deliver outstanding performance at a great value, enabling small businesses to manage their IT investments smarter.

The latest family of Intel® Xeon® processors E3 v5 product deliver powerful performance for the best user experiences, high productivity and great efficiency. Intel ran a series of industry standard benchmarks to demonstrate this gain in performance with the new family. The benchmarks ran include general purpose workloads, such as SPEC CPU* 2006, Stream Triad, and LINPACK 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 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.

Integer Throughput with SPECint*_rate_base2006

SPEC CPU* 2006 is a benchmark to measure system efficiency during integer and floating point operations. It consists of an integer test suite containing 12 applications and a floating-point test suite containing 17 applications that are extremely computing-intensive and concentrate on the CPU and memory. Other components, such as disk I/O and network, are not measured by this benchmark. SPEC CPU2006 contains two different methods of performance measurement: The first, "speed," determines the time required to complete a single task; the second, "rate," determines the throughput—that is, how many tasks can be completed in parallel. Both methods are additionally subdivided into two measuring runs: "base" and "peak," which differ in the way the compiler optimization is used. The "base" values are always used when results are published, and the "peak" values are optional. For more information, please visit: http://www.spec.org/cpu2006.

Memory Bandwidth with STREAM

STREAM has become a defacto standard for measuring a platforms memory bandwidth. STREAM performs a series of reads and writes to/from very large arrays to determine memory bandwidth. There are four different outputs of STREAM (Add, Copy, Scale & Triad). Most use the Triad result. For more information, visit: http://www.cs.virginia.edu/stream/.

Floating Point Performance with Intel® Optimized LINPACK

LINPACK is a benchmark which performs a series of linear algebra computations. At the heart of LINPACK is DGEMM, a matrix multiply routine. LINPACK is typically used to measure a systems peak floating point capabilities. SMP LINPACK is a version which only works on a single compute node.

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/benchmarks.

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.
