Over at the Dell Blog, Garima Kochhar has posted a performance evaluation of four Haswell processor models (Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 Product Family) comparing them for performance and energy efficiency on HPC applications.

There is a clear performance up-side for all the applications and datasets studied here when using higher bin/higher core count processors. The goal of this study was to quantify these performance improvements as a guide to choosing the best processor model for a workload or cluster. This blog concludes our three part series on the impact of the new Dell 13G servers with Intel Haswell processors on HPC applications.
