Sun Fire X2270 M2 Sets World Record on SPEC OMP2001 Benchmark

Oracle's Sun Fire X2270 M2 server running the Oracle Solaris 10 10/09 with the Oracle Solaris Studio 12 Update 1 compiler, produced the top x86 SPECompM2001 result for all 2-socket servers.

  • The Sun Fire X2270 M2 server with two Intel Xeon X5670 processors running 24 OpenMP threads achieved a SPEC OMP2001 result of 55,178 SPECompM2001.

  • The Sun Fire X2270 M2 server beat the Cisco B200 M2 system even thought the Cisco system used the faster Intel Xeon X5680 (3.33GHz) chips.

Benchmark Description

The SPEC OMPM2001 Benchmark Suite was released in June 2001 and tests HPC performance using OpenMP for parallelism.

  • 11 programs (3 in C and 8 in Fortran) parallelized using OpenMP API
Goals of the suite:
  • Targeted to mid-range (4-32 processor) parallel systems
  • Run rules, tools and reporting similar to SPEC CPU2006
  • Programs representative of HPC and Scientific Applications

The SPEC OMPL2001 Benchmark Suite was released in June 2001 and tests HPC performance using OpenMP for parallelism.

  • 9 programs (2 in C and 7 in Fortran) parallelized using OpenMP API
Goals of the suite:
  • Targeted to larger parallel systems
  • Run rules, tools and reporting similar to SPEC CPU2006
  • Programs representative of HPC and Scientific Applications

There are "base" variants of both the above metrics that require more conservative compilation, such as using the same flags for all benchmarks.
