box for testing
We are just in the process of buying a lot of the new AMD interlargo
boxes and I think my bosses are quite sold on the idea of providing
one to the Debian project for testing. We use Debian extensively and
are seeing that HPC performance, specifically floating point, is not
so great on the newer equipment.
Compared to the last step (magnycours) floating point performance is
roughly half on the new processors.
Do you think access to a new box would improve this?
