These are single system results with MVAPICH. They will run on InfiniBand which is why MVAPICH was used.

The quad core runs were 2 processes per socket.

The executables were created with the latest Portland Group f90 and the optimisation flags were used for each chip. The Barcelona binary used "-tp barcelona-64" and the Xeon binary used "-tp core2-64."

As soon as I am able I will be running this test on Harpertown processors. I should then have permission to publish the details of the testing.
