14G with Skylake – how much better for HPC?

Garima Kochhar, Kihoon Yoon, Joshua Weage. HPC Innovation Lab. 25 Sep 2017.

The document below presents performance results on Skylake based Dell EMC 14th generation systems for a variety of HPC benchmarks and applications (Stream, HPL, WRF, BWA, Ansys Fluent, STAR-CCM+ and LS-DYNA). It compares the performance of these new systems to previous generations, going as far back as Westmere (Intel Xeon 5500 series) in Dell EMC's 11th generation servers, showing the potential improvements when moving to this latest instance of server technology.
