Yes, I would prefer Triad.

I'll update the BG/Q number.  What code is needed to observe this?  (I
think I've always heard 26-27 GB/s quoted and have not personally
measured higher.)  It would be helpful to list this somewhere on the
ALCF website.

I assume that your 97 GB/s on XC30 using E5-2697v2?  The numbers I used
come from this page which quotes STREAM Triad at 89 GB/s.

Edison uses E5-2695v2 (2.4 GHz), thus the somewhat lower number.
