Seismic simulation using Paradigm GeoDepth Epos* 4

Benchmark description

GeoDepth CSFWMig* workload

GeoDepth* is a fully-integrated system for 2D/3D velocity model building and seismic imaging. It enables the construction of a variety of 3D velocity/depth model types, from pre-processed, pre-stack marine/land seismic data. High-resolution imaging and reconstruction of seismic reflectivity. Metric: number of shots processed per hour.

Configuration details Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series

4S seismic processing and imaging performance on Paradigm GeoDepth* workload

Comparison based on 4S Intel® Xeon® processor X7560 based server platform compared to an existing baseline 2S Intel® Xeon® processor X5570 based server platform measured by Intel labs and reviewed/approved by Paradigm* as of 29 March 2010. Number of shorts processed per hour (higher is better). See www.pdgm.com/ for more information.

Product and Performance Information

open

1. Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel® products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/benchmarks/resources-benchmark-limitations.html.

2. Relative performance for each benchmark is calculated by taking the actual benchmark result for the first platform tested and assigning it a value of 1.0 as a baseline. Relative performance for the remaining platforms tested was calculated by dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported.

See www.spec.org for more information. TPC-C*, TPC-H*, TPC-E* are trademarks of the Transaction Processing Council. See www.tpc.org for more information.

4. Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.

5. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires a computer system with a processor supporting Intel® HT Technology and an Intel® HT Technology-enabled chipset, BIOS, and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software you use. For more information including details on which processors support Intel® HT Technology, see www.intel.com/products/ht/hyperthreading_more.htm.

6. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a platform with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Intel Turbo Boost Technology performance varies depending on hardware, software, and overall system configuration. Check with your platform manufacturer on whether your system delivers Intel Turbo Boost Technology. For more information, see www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-technology.html.

7. Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

8. Intel® products are not intended for use in medical, life saving, life sustaining, critical control or safety systems, or in nuclear facility applications. All dates and products specified are for planning purposes only and are subject to change without notice.
