General Compute Performance with New Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

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 new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

General purpose workloads, such as SPECint*2006, characterize compute, memory, and software characteristics, which serves 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.

All performance measurements are accurate as of July 11 2017.

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++).
