I have a new Computer (Thinkstation: Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 (2.4 GHz x 16) and want to compare its Performance against two others (Dell: Xeon X5560 2.9GHz x 8, Tri: i7-4790 3.6Ghz x 8). On first two Mathematica 11.0 is installed. On last Player pro 11 is installed. If I use Mathematica BenchmarkReport with 8 Kernels started (LaunchKernels) the Tri PC only gets a Rating 2.25 vs. Dell 4.18 and Thinkstation 5.38. It makes no sense to me from the clock Speed of the CPUs. So the question is if Player pro does Benchmark differently? Can someone confirm or test?
Remark: If I use LaunchKernels instead of 8 the results are: Tri: 1.98; Dell: 2.74; ThinkStation: 3.63. Again the Tri is way off. Without Multi threading it is: Tri: 1.48; Dell: 0.92; ThinkStation: 1.4.
