As my semester project, I have to measure Flops/Watts for Intel Atom, Xeon and core2duo using some benchmark(e.g. SPEC2005). Based on those results I have to compare these systems.
The second part is optimise these systems to increase Flops/Watts.
Can anyone help me to get started.
from experience, Atoms are very efficient, low power, no perfromance and can hardly do 2 things at once(2 web pages at the same time), XEON, OMG they can make your power meter spin, C2D can be throttled some and a little more power efficient, but CPU's are like a car, if you want a 700 HP car with good gas mileage- forget it
