With this small news article, we would like to point your attention to a remarkable statistic. Since the launch of the XTU benchmark, in cooperation with Intel, our engine has accepted over 10,000 XTU result submissions. This makes the XTU benchmarks one of the most popular benchmarks of this moment. We also learned that over 70% of the Haswell users here at HWBOT have benchmarked XTU. Needless to say, we are all very surprised and pleased to see so much XTU activity.
The XTU benchmark launched slightly over three months ago, in June, together with the new Haswell processor architecture. Since then, new features have been introduced. We are continuing the development process and hope to bring even more features in the future.
