    Phoronix: Intel Xeon Cascade Lake Running Even Faster With Clear Linux - Six Linux Operating Systems Benchmarked

    Following the initial launch benchmarks earlier this week of the Intel 2nd Gen Xeon Scalable "Cascade Lake" 8280 processors, I proceeded to run some benchmarks of different Linux distributions (operating systems) to ensure the Linux support panned out across the major platforms and while at it also comparing the performance between these different flavors of GNU/Linux. With this powerful Gigabyte Server sporting dual Xeon Platinum 8280 processors for a combined 56 cores / 112 threads, 12 x 32GB DDR4-2933MHz memory, and Samsung NVMe storage, Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu 19.04 Beta, Fedora 29, CentOS 7, Debian 9.8, and Clear Linux were tested to look at the performance of the brand new Cascade Lake.

    Hi Mike,

    Great follow-up post to show some optimizations.

    Is it correct to assume that Clear is running OpenCV and Tensorflow with VNNI-enabled binaries?

    If so, I'd love to see a follow-up with these tests and potentially other inferencing loads run on a wider range of systems too.

      Holy bone crushing silicone. The turbo is off the charts for that many cores.

        56 cores. Are you measuring your kernel compile time in minutes or seconds, Michael?

          It's always reported in seconds.

            I haven't yet had the time to dig in to see if Clear is doing any VNNI optimizations but plan to do some VNNI benchmarks in the days ahead.

              Wonder if Red Hat and Oracle Linux perform (or not) the same as CentOS...
