If you want to compare your own Linux system(s) performance to the results found in this article, it's extremely easy to do so in a fully-automated and reproducible manner. Simply install the open-source Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1802029-PTS-DENVERTO89 to carry out your own side-by-side automated benchmark comparison to the results found in this article.

There is also this standalone result file with some other benchmarks / test profiles to which you can also run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1801112-FO-INTELDENV41 for comparing that data set.

Overall the Tyan Tempest S3227 with the Atom C3950 has been a very capable platform in our testing thus far and also quite performant all things considered, particularly its low TDP yet sixteen physical cores. More details on the S3227 Denverton line-up can be found at
