The Python and PHP benchmarks also show room for single-threaded performance improvements.

While lastly for now are the OSBench synthetic operating system benchmarks with the Raptor Talos II doing well against the EPYC and Xeon platforms.

The results for the most part are competitive with current AMD EPYC and Intel Xeon hardware, even more so if considering it's a fully open-source/libre system without any FSP/ME/PSP to worry about for those concerned about that. If you would like to compare your own system's Linux x86/ARM/POWER/SPARC performance against the results found in this article, it's trivial to conduct your own fully-automated, side-by-side performance comparison against the results found in this article. Simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1804049-AR-POWERTALO23.

Thanks to Raptor Computer Systems for providing access to this fully open-source, high-performance POWER9 system for testing. Those interested in pricing options and more information on the Talos II can find the details at RaptorCS.com.
