Combined with the processor-enhancing capabilities of the HP Super-Scalable
Processor Chipset sx2000, the HP Integrity Superdome server delivers outstanding
performance, scalability, and simplified management at an exceptional value.
With its latest SPECint_rate2000 and SPECfp_rate2000 benchmarks announced in
July 2006,
the HP Integrity Superdome with Dual-Core Intel® Itanium® 2
processors demonstrates a superior level of performance, functionality, and value
within enterprise-class high-end servers. The Dual-Core Itanium 2-based Integrity
Superdome’s SPECint_rate2000 result of 2367 is higher than any other 128 core
system
1
, and it is higher than the SPECint_rate2000 results for the largest systems
from Sun and IBM. Its SPECfp_rate2000 result of 2837 is superior to SGI’s
Density optimized Altix 4700, and it’s faster than the largest systems from Sun
and IBM.

benchmark record with HP-UX 11i v2
The NEW
HP Integrity Superdome
Superior performance
#1 64p/128c performance result
on SPECint_rate2000
Almost twice as fast in
performance as the Sun SunFire
72p/144c in SPECint_rate2000
and 20% better than SGI’s Altix
3700 128p/128c result.
28% better than IBM’s p5 595
32p/64c result.
A full disclosure report describing these
benchmark results has been filed with the
Standard Performance Evaluation
Corporation (SPEC). This report describes the
benchmark HW and SW configuration in
detail. Similar reports from other vendors are
the source of the comparisons provided
above. Summaries of all tests are published
by SPEC and on the Internet on SPEC’s
World Wide Web Server. With these
benchmarks, customers can objectively
compare the performance of different
vendors' servers in specific areas.
