What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?
Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision

cpu benchmark figures  attempted use of a CPU performance benchmark as an indicator of system-level performance. As the saying goes Many a slip 'twixt cup and lip ; for us, this means that while CPU performance and system performance are often linked, the link may be tenuous and not necessarily usable for comparison. Another popular misapplication is to test a high-performing but non-useful configuration, then present the results as if customers would actually get the measures performance. An example of this might be to test Read More

IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost
IBM's four-CPU servers, the Netfinity 5500 M20 and 7000 M10, yield top notch web-focused benchmark figures, but also very high price/performance figures for

Customers who need a lot of CPUs in a small space will find this a negative. Vendor Recommendations 5500 M20: The 5500 M20 is a fairly standard, middle-of-the-road system, with the exception of its unusual size. IBM should consider reducing the system chassis to 7U. Since it takes a year or so to redesign a chassis, IBM should play up the performance aspects of the 5500 (in the meantime), an area where Read More
HP’s LT 6000r Six-CPU Server
HP has re-entered the enterprise computing race with the release of its LT 6000r, a six-CPU server with improved performance and excellent transactional price

cpu benchmark figures  by a Compaq 8 CPU server figure, it shows a renewed interest in providing cost-effective performance. We have discussed HP's relatively poor price/performance in the past; we are glad to see that they appear to be changing their focus in this regard. System density As mentioned earlier, six CPUs in a 4U box challenges Compaq, Dell, and IBM to match it. The performance advantages were obvious from viewing the benchmark scores. It is also clear that Compaq and Dell have gotten the message, as they have Read More
IBM’s Newest NUMA-Q Server to Handle 64 Intel CPUs

Krause - June 19, 2000 Event Summary May 24, 2000 [Source: IBM] - IBM introduced the world's most powerful Intel-based server, the 64-processor NUMA-Q E410, along with the industry's most affordable technology-leading two-way server, the Netfinity 3500 M20. These products represent the high-end and the low-end of the industry's most scalable Intel-based server line for e-businesses running Windows 2000 and Linux environments. Powered by Intel's new 700 MHz Pentium III Xeon Read More

Alpha CPU history indicates that the machine will perform well, although the per-transaction cost (i.e., in a transaction processing situation, or a large database scenario) will likely be high. For example, when running the TPC-H benchmark test (for decision support environments where users don't know which queries will be executed against a database system [Source: TPCC]), the IBM RS/6000 exhibited a greater than 3:1 price/performance advantage over the previous large Read More

Network Appliance: NAS leadership: Network Appliance is the current leader in the Network Attached Storage market, holding a greater than 40% share. (NetApp is also a key player in the caching market, holding a market share of approximately 28%.) File serving: The NetFiler product can run attached to mixed (Unix and Windows NT) server networks.

Turmoil in CPU-Land

We don't envision AMD surpassing Intel any time soon (especially because of AMD's non-presence in the server market), but this stuff does make life interesting. For AMD , we envision a slight loss of momentum (as generally happens when a key person leaves), but we do not presently believe the long-term effects will hurt AMD greatly. User Read More

AMD Earnings Beat the Street! Intel Earnings Beat the Street?
Both Intel and AMD announced earnings that handily beat Wall Street estimates – on the surface. Do the numbers symbolize a new trend in the CPU market?

cpu benchmark figures  two, everyone thought the CPU wars were over, with Intel the victor. Cyrix was just about dead, and AMD looked like all it could do was deliver lower-priced Intel-like processors. Although AMD's revenues are still only a fraction of Intel's ($1.1B vs. $8B for the quarter), their growth rate is currently greater than Intel's. Intel and AMD have also been going through rounds of aggressive price cuts, with the end-users reaping the benefits. Even with the price cuts on the Athlon CPU et al., AMD is Read More

Although we still are unsure whether a 3U, two-CPU system (the 4500R) is what the market wants - even with hot-swap drives - denser offerings are now becoming a trend for Netfinity, rather than the exception. If IBM sticks to its preliminary price figure (under $7000 for a 6000R with a single CPU, 512 MB of RAM, no hard drives), it will find Read More
Red Hat Plays 'Love You, Love You Not' with CPUs

We understand that benchmarks are only an indicator of performance - but how will customers know how great your systems are if the only benchmarks to which they can refer have little, if anything, to do with their intended application. In effect, there is minimal Alpha presence on the desktop. That leaves the low-end server market as the means to improve volumes and thus lower system cost. That implies a natural Read More
