Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation
The SPEC OMP®2012 benchmark is designed for measuring performance using applications based on the OpenMP 3.1 standard for shared-memory parallel processing. The benchmark also includes an optional metric which includes power measurement.
The benchmark includes 14 scientific and engineering application codes, covering everything from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to molecular modeling to image manipulation. The optional energy consumption measurements are based on the SPEC Power and Performance Benchmark Methodology, which provides details on how to integrate a power metric into standardized benchmarks.
The SPEC OMP®2012 benchmark is available for purchase via the SPEC order form. This benchmark is the successor to the SPEC OMP®2001 benchmark, and licensees of the earlier benchmark are eligible for discounted upgrade pricing by contacting the SPEC office.
With the release of this benchmark, the SPEC OMP®2001
benchmark will begin the retirement process and results for that benchmark will be accepted
until January 16, 2013. After that date, only SPEC OMP®2012
benchmark result submissions will be accepted.
