Benchmarks Of 45 Linux Systems From Atoms, Athlons & Phenoms To Xeons

For curiosity sake and as part of a more interesting article coming later this week in celebrating 11 years of Phoronix with its birthday on Friday, here are a range of CPU benchmarks on 45 different Linux systems with quite a range of hardware from low-power Intel Atoms and many AMD APUs to dual socket Opterons and Xeons. There's also a mix from laptops to nettops to desktops and servers.

Yesterday I ran a set of interesting CPU-focused benchmarks on 45 of the Linux systems within my custom-built basement server room that represents many of the systems powering the upstream daily open-source testing at The tests ran yesterday were primarily processor focused as not all of these computers/servers are equipped for handling GPU testing, etc. This article is basically to provide a look at many different old and new, low-end and high-end systems. The software stacks for the different systems vary based upon what they're testing day-to-day within the server farm, so take these results as you wish. Most of the systems are running Ubuntu 14.04/14.10/15.04 with recent Linux kernel versions.

When some other data is added to these results later in the week, it will be even more interesting. Here's the data being presented in this article:

2 x Xeon E5540
A10-7800 Radeon R7
Athlon 5150
Athlon 5350
Athlon II X3 425

Core i7 3517U IVB
Core i7 3517UE
Core i7 3770K
Core i7 3960X + HD 6770
Core i7 4600U
Core i7 4770K

Core i7 720QM
Opteron 2384
Pentium G3258
Phenom II X3 710
Sempron 3850
Xeon E5-1680 v3

This represents a majority of the systems running daily Linux benchmarks in my basement. All of the benchmarking was, of course, driven in a fully-automated and standardized manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
