The GFLOPS/W of the various machines in the VMW Research Group

This is a companion to the top performance list for the same set of machines. We are using approximately the same methodology as the green500 list.

I'm using a WattsUpPro? meter for the power readings.

The raw data for these rankings is available here: http://github.com/deater/performance_results.git

* -- the pandaboard crashes due to overheating (even with heatsinks) if N=10000 is used

* -- the pi3 overheats/throttles when running Linpack. With a full heatsink and active cooling it can reportedly achieve 6.4GFLOPS likely breaking the 1GFLOP/W barrier.
