0. Intro

HPL is a portable implementation of HPLinpack used to provide data for the Top500 list http://www.top500.org/ .
To get best result in flops, I have tried different combinations: linear algebra libraries + MPI library + compiler.
I have used Intel CPUs and I got best results with MKL + Intel MPI + icc.
Below I'll show how to compile and run LINPACK benchmark with different libraries.
