Solution Performance

Innovatrics Automated Fingerprint Identification System* is a large-scale, easy to integrate, standard-compliant and high performance biometric identity management solution for a biometric fingerprint system. AFIS algorithm (1:N) is compares fingerprint templates loaded into memory, and is CPU and memory bound.

Hardware at-a-glance: Intel® Xeon® 8180 Platinum processor

Platform features: Multi-core, high memory bandwidth

Software tools/libraries: Intel® C++ Compiler 2017, OpenMP

“Innovatrics algorithm achieves a speed of 1040 million fingerprint matches per second with the new Intel Xeon Scalable processors. With our unique algorithm, Innovatrics provides the fastest AFIS solution available on the market. Innovatrics AFIS is a fully scalable, multimodal, easy to integrate fingerprint matching solution which continuously demonstrates best in class performance.”
– Jan Lunter, CEO at Innovatrics

Product and Performance Information


Testing conducted on Innovatrics* software comparing 2S Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor to 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v3 and to 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v4. Testing by Intel and Innovatrics. Innovatrics fingeprint identification benchmark, 14 million fingerprints DB loaded in RAM. OS: CentOS* Linux release 7.3.1611 kernel 3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64. Testing by Intel and Innovatrics May-June 2017.
Baseline: 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v3, 2.3GHz, 18 cores, turbo and HT on, 128GB total memory (2DIMM per channel ) 16 slots / 8GB / 2133 MT/s / DDR4 RDIMM.
Next Gen: 2S Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2699 v4, 2.2GHz, 22 cores, turbo and HT on, 128GB total memory, (1DIMM per channel ) 8 slots / 16GB / 2400 MT/s / DDR4 RDIMM.
New: 2S Intel® Xeon® Platinum processor 8180 , 2.5GHz, 28 cores, turbo and HT on, 192GB total memory, (1DIMM per channel ) 12 slots / 16GB / 2666 MT/s / DDR4 RDIMM. Performance measured with two instance of the application binding each instance to each NUMA node.


Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system. 

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.
