[2] Performance is based on SPEC CPU2006 publishes and projections based on performance results as of February 28, 2015.  SPEC® and the benchmark name SPECCPU® are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation. For more information about SPECCPU2006, see

OpenPOWER performance is estimated from an IBM Power System S824 published result with 24 cores / 192 threads, POWER8; 3.5GHz, 512 GB memory, RHEL 7.1 and extrapolated to a single socket OpenPOWER based 12 cores / 96 threads POWER8; 3.1 GHz.

Competitive performance result is published on  NEC Corporation Express5800/R120f-1M (Intel Xeon E5-2699 v3) with (per socket) 18 cores / 36 threads; Intel E5-2699 v3; 2.3 GHz; 128 GB, RHEL 6.5.

Supporting Quotes

"Collaborating across our open development communities will accelerate and broaden the raw potential of a fully open data center. We have a running start together and look forward to technical collaboration and events to engage our broader community." Corey Bell, CEO Open Compute Project

"By leveraging the CAPI technology designed for the IBM POWER8 servers and support from the OpenPOWER Foundation team, it allowed Algo-Logic Systems to develop world class ultra-low-latency Full Order-Book in FPGA logic that will benefit the Financial Services industry."  John Lockwood, CEO Algo-Logic

"The future hardware architecture of OpenPOWER which shall include the next generation POWER processors, ultra high memory density systems, and NVIDIA's NVLink interconnect system, will provide the hardware platform for GPUdb that will unleash a massive performance improvement in every facet of operation. This will create even more performance improvements in the ability to ingest and conduct on the fly analytics on ultra-high velocity big data feeds."  Amit Vij, CEO, GPUdb

"OpenPOWER started off as an idea that immediately resonated with our technology partners to strengthen their scale out implementations like analytics.  Now, OpenPOWER is fundamental to every conversation IBM is having with clients -- from HPC to scale out computing to cloud service providers.  Choice, freedom and better performance are strategic imperatives guiding customers around the globe, and OpenPOWER is leading the way." Ken King, General Manager OpenPOWER Alliances, IBM

"We expect OpenPOWER to broaden the scope of available supercomputing solutions and products which is crucial for us as a leading provider of supercomputing resources. Integrating POWER processor technologies and high-performance GPUs opens an exciting path towards power-efficient exascale computing." – Dr. Dirk Pleiter, Julich Supercomputing Center

"The Linux Foundation's mission includes supporting open and collaborative development to advance key technologies and transform markets. OpenPOWER is already resonating across many dimensions and stakeholders for both hardware and software and the time has never been more right for cross-collaboration among these communities." Mike Dolan, Sr. Director of Strategic Programs, The Linux Foundation

"The prototype of IBM's system revealed today is the first in a series of new high-density Tesla GPU-accelerated servers for OpenPOWER high-performance computing and data analytics.  IBM plans to build upon this offering with follow-on systems, adding future-generation 'Pascal' GPUs with the NVIDIA NVLink high-speed GPU interconnect technology to help set the stage for exascale computing." Sumit Gupta, General Manager of Accelerated Computing, NVIDIA

"China POWER Technology Alliances (CPTA) was established in order to accelerate the speed of China secured and trusted IT industry chain building, by leveraging OpenPOWER technology. CPTA joining the Advisory Group of OpenPOWER will be a significant milestone for engaging China into the global POWER ecosystem, and opening the development community to drive further POWER innovations through the deep collaboration between communities." – Mr. Zhu Ya Dong, Chairman of Suzhou PowerCore

"As a new open platform, OpenPOWER provides the prototype system that conforms to the specifications in order to satisfy the demands of the development of the OpenPOWER ecosystem in China." – Mr. Zhiqiang Tian, Senior Engineer, BIOS research and development, TEAMSUN

"The development of the OpenPOWER ecosystem in China's high security level market enriches China ISV and IHV's options for a total solution from hardware to software." – Mr. Zhiqiang Tian, Senior Engineer, BIOS research and development, TEAMSUN
