Lenovo announced that it doubled its x86 world record benchmark count with 46 new benchmarks based on the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor, more than any other vendor in the latest Intel benchmark cycle. Lenovo’s ThinkSystem and ThinkAgile portfolio of servers, now with 88 total world record benchmarks, continues driving their lead in data center performance.

“Lenovo is committed to innovation that drives superior customer experience with an intense focus on increasing performance, reliability and sustainability. These benchmarks are a clear indication of our success in those areas,” said Bev Crair, Lenovo VP of Development and Quality.

The Intel Xeon Scalable Processor benchmarks cover workloads that range from application development, data management, Java performance to analytics. As part of these benchmarks, Lenovo’s XClarity Provisioning Manager allows our customers to select an operating mode that simplifies what is normally a highly complex process, increases their productivity and accelerates their time-to-value.

Lenovo focuses on workloads that reduce customer complexity and increase performance. These workloads fall into 5 categories: Applications, Data Management, Application Development, IT Infrastructure and Web Infrastructure. The world record benchmarks enable significant customer advantages, such as the STAC-M3 suite which more than a 7x times performance increase over the equivalent result from a prior benchmark publication on the SR650. This large increase was accomplished by using the recently announced Intel SSD DC P4800X Optane drives in the Lenovo SR650 server.
