Hyper Threading Performance & CPU Core Scaling With Intel's Skylake Xeon
Written by Michael Larabel in Intel on 27 February 2016 at 12:34 PM EST. 15 Comments
As some extra benchmarks following this week's 9-Way Intel Xeon E3 v5 Skylake Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux, some Phoronix Premium readers wanted to see how well Hyper Threading worked for these latest-generation Xeon E3 processors and the core scaling efficiency of Skylake.

So for some extra benchmarks today, using toggles from the MSI C236A Workstation BIOS, I ran a number of multi-threaded Linux benchmarks when a Xeon E3 1280 v5 had just one core enabled, two cores, three cores, four cores, and then four cores with Hyper Threading.

All other settings were maintained the same.

To see all of the benchmarks, visit this OpenBenchmarking.org result file for many more data points from a small fraction of the Phoronix Test Suite's open-source, multi-threaded test arsenal.

Of course, via OpenBenchmarking.org / PTS you can also normalize the results easily:
