Sun Fire E6900 and Hotspot dominate SPECjbb2005 under 32 CPUs
By dagastine on Jan 25, 2006
The Sun Fire E6900 (24 chip) takes the lead running SPECjbb2005 on configurations with 32 chips or less with a score of 342,578 bops. This score surpasses the previous high score of 322,719 bops run on a Fujitsu Prime Quest 480 (32 chip!). Why is this result interesting? First, the Sun Fire E6900 surpasses all other competitors in this space, faster than the IBM P5 570 and the Fujitsu Prime Quest 480. Second, and most importantly to me, this is the first of many results that highlight the performance of Sun Hotspot J2SE 5.0_06. Today's a good day for Sun Java Performance. SPEC Footnote: SPECjbb2005 Sun Fire E6900 (24-way, 24 chips, 48 cores) 342,578 bops, 28,548 bops/JVM submitted for review, Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST 480 (32 chips, 32 cores) 322,719 bops, 40,340 bops/JVM, IBM eServer p5 570 (8 chips, 16 cores, 16-way) 244,361 bops, 30,545 bops/JVM.
