    Phoronix: Intel Core i7 On Linux

    Back in November Intel had formally launched the Core i7 series, but Linux benchmarks were not to be found. However, in the weeks that followed, results began to emerge through the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoronix Global. Over time there were many more Linux test results from the Phoronix Test Suite community, but now we have posted some of our own Intel Core i7 numbers from Ubuntu Linux.

    Something's missing here... I've no idea what those numbers mean. How much faster is this than my 3.33GHz Core 2 for example?

      Or a Phenom or Opteron for about the same $$$.

        Run phoronix-test-suite benchmark michael-23540-28957-28437 and you will know precisely what it means compared to your Core 2 3.33GHz system.

          Except that we're not testing on the same setup. I would need to setup an ubuntu :P

            That's fine and well, but for the sake of the article -- there's nothing to compare the i7 to. Surely you see our point?

              Wouldn't have hurt to include q9650 or q9550 to have something to compare with.

              I sort of totally expected at least that much.

                If only Intel actually sent out processors to Phoronix...

                  Missing the idea

                  People, you are missing the idea. What Michael wants you to do is post YOUR results from YOUR setup.

                  That way, when someone post his from a Q9XXX, you will know. You can't expect Michael to have all those processors.

                  As soon as I get Phoronix Test Suite installed, I will post.

                    Well E8400 would be nice to add it in the charts, as for c2d family.
