FlamMap FSPRO Small Benchmark

FlamMap is a fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.) over an entire FARSITE landscape for constant weather and fuel moisture conditions.

The software models forest fire. Basically, the program calculates fire behavior for multiple weather scenarios based on historic weather observations, then runs a Monte Carlo simulation of an existing fire to get burn probabilities across a landscape.

I shared these FSPRO results with the developer of the application and he was impressed. He remarked at how much faster the E5-2687W Xeons were than the X5690s (they currently use X5690s in their lab).

Sungard Adaptiv Analytics v4.0

SunGard Adaptiv Credit Risk application is a component of SunGard's comprehensive suite of risk management products ( This workload is a scaled down version of the full application. At its core, the application utilizes a proprietary Monte Carlo method financial engine to determine the future value of a fictitious portfolio.

This package consists of a Microsoft Windows based .NET application and two data files - a sample market data and a sample portfolio, which provide input to the financial engine.

I'm running out of clever ways to point out how much faster the E5-2687W system is, so I'll let the graph speak for itself.
