IT Best Practices: Intel’s silicon design engineers need significant increases in computing capacity to deliver each new generation of silicon chips. To meet those requirements, Intel IT conducts ongoing performance tests, using the latest Intel silicon design data, to analyze the benefits of introducing compute servers based on new, more powerful processors into our electronic design automation (EDA) computing environment.

We recently tested a dual-socket server based on the latest Intel Xeon processor E5-2697 v3, running single-threaded, multithreaded, and distributed EDA applications operating on more than 500 Intel silicon design workloads. By utilizing all available cores, the server completed workloads up to 46x faster than a server based on a 64-bit Intel Xeon processor (3.6 GHz) with a single core. The server was up to 15x faster than a server based on Intel Xeon processor 5160 (3.0 GHz) with two cores.
