2SPEC’s PurposeThe primary purpose of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) is to develop suites of benchmark programs that are effective and fair in comparing the performance of high performance computing systems, and to assure that they are readily available to manufacturers and users of such systems.
3SPEC HPG’s PurposeThe High Performance Group focuses on the development of benchmarks for high performance computers, including but not limited to, symmetric multiprocessor systems, clusters, distributed memory parallel systems, and vector parallel supercomputers.
4SPEC HPGFounded in 1994.Active sustaining members - Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Intel, SGI, Sun, & Unisys.Active associate members - Purdue & Univ of Stuttgart.Two active benchmarks - SPEC OMP & SPEC HPC2002
5SPEC OMPBenchmark suite for performance testing of shared memory processor systems.OpenMP versions of selected SPEC CPU2000 benchmarks.Two data sizes - Medium & Large.
7SPEC OMP Version 3.0 to be released soon. OMPM & OMPL on one CD. ISO C & C++ compatible src default base src.All alternate sources for peak on CD.Begun accepting results on v3.0 from Nov. 11th.Will accept results on old kits till Feb 18th, 04.Roadmap: Begin work on CPU2004 candidates.
8SPEC HPC2002Real application benchmarks in the area of Seismic processing, Chemistry and Weather forecasting.Supports MPI, OpenMP and MPI+OpenMP.Results published on both SSIs & clusters.Roadmap: V2.0 in Q1 of CY04. Updated GAMESS source. Larger data sets. New benchmarks.
