Sun Fire X2270 M2 Server Delivers Top Two-CPU Result on the Medium Problem Set of SPEC OMP2001 Benchmark

BENCHMARK SUMMARY

(As of Monday, 28 June 2010)

Oracle’s Sun Fire X2270 M2 server is a cloud-centric compute node that offers the perfect price/performance balance for advanced memory-intensive technical computing workloads. Equipped with two Intel Xeon 5600 processor series CPUs capable of running OpenMP applications with 24 compute threads, the Sun Fire X2270 M2 server delivered outstanding performance on medium suite of the industry-standard SPEC OMP2001 benchmark. Only 1U in size, this server demonstrates Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Studio leadership in the technical compute space.

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The SPEC OMP benchmark represents workloads often used in physics, weather modeling, computational chemistry, and mechanical design, and consists of medium and large problem sets that stress the computer's processor, memory, compilers, and OpenMP implementation.

BENCHMARK OUTCOME

The Sun Fire X2270 M2 server proves that it is the industry’s best-performing two- processor system on the medium problem set of industry-standard SPEC OMP2001, with result of  55,178 SPECompM2001.
Oracle’s Sun Fire x86 server utilized two Intel Xeon X5670 processors (12 cores, 24 OMP threads) and was running Oracle Solaris 10 with Oracle Solaris Studio 12 Update 1 compiler software
