Welcome to the Dell benchmark performance page. Here you will find information about the benchmarks and workloads Dell runs for enterprise solutions.Benchmarks provide a standardized mechanism for comparing platforms, components, operating systems, or system configurations. Dell runs benchmarks internally to characterize prototype designs and components prior to a product launch to verify our performance meets expectations. It can also assist in choosing optimal components (in terms of processor, architecture, memory types, add-in cards, etc.).Benchmarks can also provide proof points for marketing claims. Dell participates within industry-standard bodies to ensure that benchmarks developed by those bodies: closely resemble the way our customers use applications on our solutions; customers can reproduce the benchmark results with a similar configuration; that the run rules are fair and consistent to ensure a "level playing field".
