Energy-Efficient Performance with New Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

Run your business with energy-efficient servers designed to deliver the best combination of performance, built-in management capabilities, and cost-effectiveness by utilizing the density optimized, energy-efficient, and compute-intensive 2-socket and 4-socket processor solutions with the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

Energy-efficient performance benchmarks come from the recognition that the IT industry, computer manufacturers, and governments are increasingly concerned with the energy use of servers. Currently, many vendors report some energy efficiency figures, but these are often not directly comparable due to differences in workload, configuration, test environment, and so forth. Development of these benchmarks provides a means to measure power (at the AC input) in conjunction with a performance metric. This should help IT managers to consider power characteristics along with other selection criteria to increase the efficiency of data centers.

All performance measurements are accurate as of July 11 2017.

Energy-Efficient Performance Using the SPECpower_ssj*2008 Benchmark

This energy-efficient server-side Java* workload provides a way to measure power in conjunction with a performance netric to compare the efficiency of servers in the data center. While measuring power at the AC input of the server, the workload exercises the various server components, hierarchy, and scalability (e.g., CPU, caches, memory) as well as the implementations of the Java* virtual machine, just-in-time compiler, garbage collection, threads, and some aspects of the operating system.
