    Yes, twice the score is roughly twice the number of operations.

    But in real life other issues, like RAM and disk bandwidth and the inability of applications to scale to 4 or 8 cores means that application performance doesn't increase at the same rate.

    benchmark scaling question

    Hello every1,

    I was wondering if the benchmark scaling is linear or not? What I mean is; is a cpu scoring 9000 is 3x faster than a cpu scoring 3000? Let's say we would be in a perfect world where there is no HD, RAM, VC, NIC bottleneck, would it be 3x faster? Does it do 3x more operation per seconds?

    I am asking because, when it comes to virtualization, let's say I have 10old servers, score 2000 on the cpu benchmark, for a total of 20,000points, can I virtualize them easily on 2-3x 10,000points cpu?

    thx
Working...
