03 Jun 2016 Oracle Advanced Analytics: SPARC T7-4 Beats 4-Chip x86 E7 v3 [53122]

from the Oracle BestPerf blog: "Oracle's four-chip SPARC T7-4 server can deliver up to 3.5x better performance than a four-chip x86 server (with Intel Xeon Processor E7-8895 v3 chips) running Oracle Advanced Analytics data mining features. The SPARC M7 processor per core performance is up to 2x faster than the per core performance of the Intel Xeon Processor E7-8895 v3. Oracle Advanced Analytics is an option of Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition (12.2)..."

13 Apr 2016 SHA Digest Encryption: SPARC T7-2 Beats x86 E5 v4 [51719]
BestPerf Blog

Brian writes in the BestPerf log, "Oracle's cryptography benchmark measures security performance on important Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) functions. Oracle's SPARC M7 processor with its security software in silicon is faster than current and recent x86 servers. In this test, the performance of on-processor digest operations is measured for three sizes of plaintext inputs (64, 1024 and 8192 bytes) using three SHA2 digests (SHA512, SHA384, SHA256) and the older, weaker SHA1 digest. Multiple parallel threads are used to measure each processor's maximum throughput. Oracle's SPARC T7-2 server shows dramatically faster digest computation compared to current x86 two processor servers..."
