Deliver HPC Solutions in Record Time with Your SMP Server

SPEC OMP* (OpenMP* Benchmark Suite), http://www.spec.org/omp/, is SPEC's first benchmark suite for evaluating performance based on OpenMP (http://www.openmp.org) applications. SPEC OMP continues the SPEC tradition of giving HPC users the most objective and representative benchmark suite for measuring the performance of SMP (shared memory multi-processor) systems.

SPEC OMPL2001* contains larger working sets and longer run times than SPEC/HPG's SPEC OMPM2001*. Application benchmarks running under SPEC OMPL2001 use up to 6.4 GB of memory and take approximately four hours each to run on a 300 MHz, 16-processor reference machine. SPEC OMPM2001 uses medium-sized workloads that require 1.6 GB of memory and take an hour and a half each to run on a 350 MHz, four-processor reference machine.

SPEC* and the benchmark name SPEComp* are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation.

SPECompL_base2006* benchmark scores (HIGHER is better).

Product and Performance Information

1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information go to http://www.intel.com/performance. Results have been measured by Intel based on software, benchmark or other data of third parties and are provided for informational purposes only.  Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance.  Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party data referenced in this document.  Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the websites of the referenced third parties or other sources to confirm whether the referenced data is accurate and reflects performance of systems available for purchase.

2. Relative performance for each benchmark is calculated by taking the actual benchmark result for the first platform tested and assigning it a value of 1.0 as a baseline. Relative performance for the remaining platforms tested was calculated by dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported.

3. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology: See the Processor Spec Finder at http://ark.intel.com or contact your Intel representative for more information.

4. Requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are only available on select Intel® processors. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration. For more information, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-technology.html.

5. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires a computer system with a processor supporting Intel HT Technology and an Intel HT Technology-enabled chipset, BIOS, and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. For more information including details on which processors support Intel HT Technology, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.

6. Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

7. Intel® products are not intended for use in medical, life-saving, life-sustaining, critical control, or safety systems, or in nuclear facility applications. All dates and products specified are for planning purposes only and are subject to change without notice.
