HPC Benchmarking Results for Intel Broadwell Processors

Over at the Dell HPC Community Blog, Ashish Kumar Singh, Mayura Deshmukh and Neha Kashyap discuss the performance characterization of Intel Broadwell processors with High Performance LINPACK (HPL) and STREAM benchmarks. “The performance of all Broadwell processor used for this study is higher for both HPL and STREAM benchmarks. “There is ~12% increase in measured memory bandwidth for Broadwell processors compared to Haswell processors. Broadwell processors measure better power efficiencies than the Haswell processors. In conclusion, Broadwell processors may fulfill the demands of more compute power for HPC applications.”
