Speeds and Feeds at Your Fingertips

A handy, consolidated spreadsheet lets you quickly compare rPerfs and CPW across different hardware generations.

Have you ever wondered how much faster POWER9 systems benchmark against earlier versions of the hardware? Well there's an easy way to find out. Go to the IBM Lab Services UKI (United Kingdom and Ireland) POWER team web page to download a spreadsheet with this information.

As you can see, the most recent update came in August:

I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoys being able to compare rperfs and CPW across different hardware generations. While the POWER Facts and Features guides also have this information, this spreadsheet puts everything at your fingertips. Check it out.
