NOTE: Originally this post included a report using the STAC-M3 Kanaga (scale) tests in addition to the baseline tests (STAC-M3 Antuco). After submitting the reports, Intel discovered that the Kanaga database was missing some dates, which meant the results were not valid. Hence, the STAC-M3 Kanaga report has been removed.
