Some Standalone Intel Skylake i5-6600K Linux Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Intel on 16 August 2015 at 09:55 AM EDT. 3 Comments
If you want to see how your own Linux system(s) compare to the Intel Core i5 6600K "Skylake" processor, here are some standalone benchmarks.

Just install the Phoronix Test Suite on the distribution of your choice and then run: phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1508153-HA-INTELCORE78. This result file has a number of OpenGL gaming tests as well as other CPU workloads. Running that command will automatically download/setup all of the tests, run them in the same manner as happened on the 6600K, and compare the results side-by-side in a streamlined manner.

If you just want to look at the raw result data for my first Intel Skylake Linux system running Ubuntu, go head on over to the result file.

If you missed my other posts in the past few days, I have already written a few about the i5-6600K on Linux. In the next few days will be my initial proper results for this Core i5 Skylake system comparing it to different Intel/AMD setups.
