In this paper we take a look at what the newest member of the Intel Xeon Processor family, code named Westmere brings to high performance computing. We compare three generations of Intel Xeon based systems and present a performance evolutions based on 16 node clusters based on these CPUs respectively. We compare CPU generations utilizing dual socket… CONTINUE READING
