Benchmark Description

SPEC CPU2006 is SPEC's most popular benchmark, with over 8000 resultspublished in the three years since it was introduced. It measures:

  • "Speed" - single copy performance of chip, memory, compiler
  • "Rate" - multiple copy (throughput)
The rate metrics are used for the throughput-oriented systemsdescribed on this page. These metrics include:

  • SPECint_rate2006: throughput for 12 integer benchmarks derived from real applications such as perl, gcc, XML processing, and pathfinding
  • SPECfp_rate2006: throughput for 17 floating point benchmarks derived from real applications, including chemistry, physics, genetics, and weather.
There are "base" variants of both the above metrics that requiremore conservative compilation, such as using the same flags forall benchmarks.
