    Default Intel Core i7 On Linux

    Phoronix: Intel Core i7 On Linux

    Back in November Intel had formally launched the Core i7 series, but Linux benchmarks were not to be found. However, in the weeks that followed, results began to emerge through the Phoronix Test Suite and Phoronix Global. Over time there were many more Linux test results from the Phoronix Test Suite community, but now we have posted some of our own Intel Core i7 numbers from Ubuntu Linux.

    Something's missing here... I've no idea what those numbers mean. How much faster is this than my 3.33GHz Core 2 for example?

    Or a Phenom or Opteron for about the same $$$.

    Run phoronix-test-suite benchmark michael-23540-28957-28437 and you will know precisely what it means compared to your Core 2 3.33GHz system.

    That's fine and well, but for the sake of the article -- there's nothing to compare the i7 to. Surely you see our point?

    Except that we're not testing on the same setup. I would need to setup an ubuntu :P

    Wouldn't have hurt to include q9650 or q9550 to have something to compare with.

    I sort of totally expected at least that much.

    If only Intel actually sent out processors to Phoronix...

    Default Missing the idea

    People, you are missing the idea. What Michael wants you to do is post YOUR results from YOUR setup.

    That way, when someone post his from a Q9XXX, you will know. You can't expect Michael to have all those processors.

    As soon as I get Phoronix Test Suite installed, I will post.

    Rarely do I post here anymore.

    I agree in the sense of the community generating meaningful results itself; results which can then be compared against each other. But, I think most people here, myself included, were hoping for something in the article to compare it against. After all, not everyone has the same OS configuration, nor Phoronix Test Suite, nor Linux for that matter. What about the audience looking for i7 Linux performance who 1) have never used it, and 2) don't have an i7 but may be considering buying one & installing Linux on that rig (or any single part of that)?

    Don't get me wrong. I love the Phoronix Test Suite for what it is, and I'm very grateful to Michael for providing this critical piece of software for free. Also, I have no reason to believe Michael isn't acting with his best intentions. However, I'm with everyone else on this issue: It's hard to make a judgment call with just one chip that's been overclocked.

    (tl;dr) Put shortly: Perhaps a follow-up article with community-submitted benches of comparable systems would be something Michael could consider.

    just my 2c.

    (btw, didn't mean to single you out, gtrawoger. nothing personal!)
