This paper examines scalability of computational performance with the Intel(r) Sandy Bridge multicore architecture, particularly when used on Mercury processor boards. We look specifically at two device types, an 8-core Xeon (E5-2648L clocked at 1.8 GHz) and a 4-core Core i7 (2715QE clocked at 2.1 GHz). These are relatively low-power devices which are suitable for use on embedded processor boards.
Performance Comparison Between Intel(r) Mobile-Class and Server-Class Processors for Embedded Defense Applications
Mercury continually evaluates new processors to better understand their performance and applicability for defense embedded applications. In this paper, we've highlighted the results from our recent tests comparing Intel(r) mobile-class versus server-class processors.
