Intel Ivy Bridge Continues To Grind Quickly On Linux

There's many more Ivy Bridge Linux tests coming out in the next few weeks, but here's some new results today for the Core i7 3770K processor looking at the overclocking results and effects of Turbo Boost and Hyper Threading.

Complementing my Intel Core i7 3770K Linux benchmarks, Intel HD 4000 Ivy Bridge Graphics on Linux, and Ubuntu 12.04 vs. Windows 7: Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge Loses On Linux results are some new figures to share this afternoon that show the i7-3770K from one of the Intel Z77 motherboards running Ubuntu 12.04 when overclocked from 3.50GHz to 4.20GHz and 4.80GHz. As well it shows the impact that Turbo Boost and Hyper Threading have on the overall Linux performance for this latest-generation Intel hardware.

These were just some quick tests done today and pushed onto OpenBenchmarking.org, where you can find the results in full, system hardware/software details, system logs, etc. Embedded below are just some of the more interesting results. Anyone can also compare their Linux system's performance to these Intel Core i7 numbers by simply running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1205038-SU-INTELIVYB66 with the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software.

Again, all the rest are on OpenBenchmarking.org thanks to the open-source automated test infrastructure provided for Linux/OSX/BSD/Solaris users by the Phoronix Test Suite.

Other Ivy Bridge tests coming up under Linux include more HD 4000 IVB graphics results, comparing the LLVM/Clang/GCC/Open64/EKOPath compilers on Ivy Bridge, Ivy Bridge compiler tuning, Ubuntu 12.04 stock packages versus the latest Intel Git stack, Ivy Bridge OpenCL on the CPU, Glamor and SNA 2D acceleration versus UXA, DRM and Mesa comparisons, and testing the different Linux desktop environments with the open-source IVB graphics driver.
