There was an article posted on phoronix comparing several Linux servers including POWER9, Intel and AMD EPYX.
Analysis for this article was minimal; so in this post I dug in a bit more on characteristics of the benchmarks of what was actually being compared. I also ran the tests on my i7-4770 system to get a reference. I went through all the benchmarks to do the next level of diagnosis and characterization and provided links in the table below.
NOTE: The diagnosis pages are slowly being updated to reflect newer tools and methods.
|Timed GCC build||lower||1281.00||707.34||Diagnosis|
|Timed kernel build||lower||156.20||35.66||Diagnosis|
|OSbench: process||lower||ERROR fork()->EAGAIN||59.61||N/A|
