Vault Report: Single Cray XC40 node with Intel Haswell EP under STAC-A2

Cray submits unaudited results for liquid-cooled, dense compute node

Cray recently submitted STAC-A2 results to the STAC Vault. The unaudited report and configuration disclosure are now available to STAC members with a premium subscription.* 

The stack under test was a single liquid-cooled Cray XC40 compute server node with two 16-core Intel Xeon E5-2698 processors (Haswell EP), running the Cray Linux Environment. The code that Cray ran in this environment was the STAC-A2 Pack for Intel Composer XE (Rev E), written by Intel.

STAC-A2 is the user-developed benchmark standard based on financial market risk analysis. Designed by quants and technologists from some of the world's largest banks, STAC-A2 reports the performance, scaling, quality, and resource efficiency of any technology stack that is able to handle the workload (Monte Carlo estimation of Heston-based Greeks for a path-dependent, multi-asset option with early exercise)
