Performance - Top Picks

Version 14

    Intel® architecture (IA) processors deliver high performance through a combination of means, including multi-core platforms with hardware-assisted virtualization, 22 nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors, integrated graphics, advanced vector processing instructions, and gen 3 I/O – just to name a few.  Here are links to some community posts on the topic that I think are particularly useful:



    Blog:  Expanding ISR Across the Battlefield

    Radar, signals intelligence, and electro optical/infrared capabilities of sophisticated intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems require abundant, high throughput, low latency real-time processing power.  Learn how Intel® processor-based systems meet these needs.  



    Blog:  Optimizing Mil/Aero Image and Signal Processing

    Mil/Aero applications have computationally intensive image and signal processing requirements calling for high levels of floating-point data precision. Learn about the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 instruction set feature of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family.



    Blog: Extending Intel® Virtualization Technology to the Network

    Performance of virtual systems is critical to the success of Network Function Virtualization (NFV).  Check out a new Ethernet controller that extends Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) beyond the processor itself and to the MAC.


    Article:   Flexible Performance for Network Security Appliances

    As threats escalate, security appliances need more performance and flexibility – without increasing power or footprint. Read how these requirements can be met with the new Intel® Atom™ processor C2000 product family.


    Blog:  Sub-Second Boots for Mil/Aero Applications

    See how an Intel® processor boots in half-second by combining the Intel® Firmware Support Package with an optimization of coreboot*, an open source extended firmware platform, and SeaBIOS, an open source implementation of a 16-bit X86 BIOS.


    Blog:   A New Solution for High Performance HTTP Networking

    With HTTP the primary protocol for fast-growing IoT applications developers need a cost-effective way to handle lots of sessions with low-bandwidth traffic.  Read about a server that can respond to 6.5 million HTTP requests per second and sustain 107 million open connections.


    Article:  Supercomputer Technology Reports for Duty

    A single OpenVPX chassis can achieve an incredible 19 trillion floating-point operations per second with the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family. Find out how you can bring this high performance embedded computing to deployable systems.


    Blog:  Optimize HPEC with Linux* and OpenMPI
