Blade server beats racks

By Chris Mellor, 25 Apr 2016

Huawei's FusionServer E9000 blade server has set three SPEC world records.

The SPEC CPU2006 tests measured the performance of the 2-socket E9000 based on Intel's Xeon E5-2600 v4 CPUwith up to 22 cores, and 20 per cent more performance than the preceding E5-2600 v3. The scores were 74, 1790, and 1120 in the SPECint_base2006, SPECint_rate_base2006, and SPECfp_rate_base2006 test cases respectively. The E9000's score in SPECint_base2006 beat rack server performance. Huawei says it's the first blade server in the industry to outperform rack servers in this test. ®
