SunStudio 12 Compiler establishes World Record on Woodcrest chip!


Imagine That!
However, here it is. The latest submitted results for our Constellation Blade Server, now called Sun Blade Server 6000 system, makes it official.
The Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5160 Intel Blade Module of this Server  delivers World Record Performance on SPECint2006  of 21.0, which is higher than any announced benchmark for either the Core2Duo or Opteron chips.  These results beat even the Intel Compiler results for an Intel Chip!
New Sun Systems with SunStudio compilers and Solaris 10 on Intel chips are leading the way with performance. If ever there was vindication needed what Intel chips are capable of bringing to Sun systems and what Solaris is bringing to Intel to help expand the x86 marketplace, this is it!

Sun also announced World Record Performance  on the SPEC OMPM2001 benchmark for the Dual-socket dual-core AMD Opteron Model 2222SE based Opteron Blade Module of this server with a score of  13847 for 4-threads

Required Disclosure:

Sun Blade 6250 (2xDual-core , 4 cores, 2 chips, 2 cores/chip, Solaris 10):  SunStudio12 SPECint2006 - 21.0

Comments:

As a followup, Intel's submission is now official. You can find it here on SPEC's pages.
The Sun numbers still beat them, but just barely. Its still wonderful to see that we meet Intel's best numbers.
