AWS New I/O optimized I4i - Geekbench

Go back to list

Geekbench 5 is a standard benchmark suite aiming to create a score from different system performance. From its outputs, we capture:

  • Single score: CPU performance
  • Multi score: Whole system performance

Assertions

  • With less vCPU than its predecessor, the i3en produces almost the same performance than i3. From 12 Intel Cascade-Lake vCPUs versus 16 Broadwell vCPUs.
  • The i4i with the latest Ice-Lake processors is far ahead
