28-Way Linux CPU/System Comparison From Old To New
Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 8 May 2018. Page 5 of 5. 15 Comments

I also added in some newer test profiles after this initial comparison began, so for the remainder of the tests is just with a sub-set of the systems tested.

Including the Stockfish multi-threaded chess engine benchmark.

And Zstd compression performance.

The new m-queens test profile introduced recently.

Lastly for those wondering how the very basic C-written SciMark2 performance has evolved across some of these systems.

Beyond running this comparison out of curiosity and fun around the anniversary of starting Phoronix, the other large motivator for testing all these systems is if you want to see how your own system(s) compare. When you install the Phoronix Test Suite simply run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1806083-AR-PHX14CPUS04 to facilitated your own side-by-side, fully-automated benchmark comparison.
