Intel Unveils Dual-core Performance Benchmark Results


Following AMD's announcement for its new AM2 processors, Intel on Wednesday posted the results on 20 key dual-processor (DP) server and workstation benchmarks, providing a first glimpse of the real-world capability of the company's Core architecture.

The first processor due to launch based on the new Intel Core microarchitecture - the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series, previously codenamed "Woodcrest" - delivers up to 125 percent performance improvement over previous generation dual-core Intel Xeon processors and up to 60 percent performance improvement over competing x86-based architectures, according to Intel.

Intel's new server and workstation platforms, codenamed "Bensley" and "Glidewell" respectively, are architected for today's dual-core processors. They will also support dual- and quad-core processors built using Intel?s 65-nanometer (nm) and future process technologies.

The first processors for Bensley and Glidewell are in the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5000 series, previously codenamed "Dempsey." Shipping since March at a new low price point, they promise higher performance and lower power consumption to the value server and workstation segment.

Intel will also ship the next processor for Bensley and Glidewell in June - the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series. Based on the Intel Core Microarchitecture, the majority of these processors will only consume a maximum of 65 watts.

Benchmark results

Using the SPECint_rate_base2000 benchmark, which measures integer throughput, a Dell PowerEdge 2950 server based on the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series scored 123.0, according to Intel.

Using the SPECjbb 2005 benchmark, the Fujitsu-Siemens PRIMERGY RX200 S3 server based on the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series broke the previous record with a score of 96,404 business operations per second.

An HP Proliant ML 370 G5 server based on the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100, and using the TPC-C benchmark, which measures database performance, smashed another world record by scoring 169,360 tpmC at $2.93/tpmC8.

IBM is also in the record books with the IBM System x3650 server based on the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series, which scored 9,182 in the SPECWeb 2005 benchmark, which measures web server performance.

Other benchmarks on Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series-based servers include Lotus Domino (R6iNotes), Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 (MMB3), SPECfp_rate_base2000 and SAP-SD 2-Tier.

These benchmarks, along with additional records set by the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5000 and Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100, can be accessed by visiting www.intelstartyourengines.com.
