New SPEC CPU search programme announced
By Darryl Gove-Oracle on Nov 11, 2008
SPEC has announced the search programme for the follow up to the CPU2006 benchmark suite. They are looking for compute intensive codes, real production apps, not microkernels or artificial benchmarks, that will cover a broad range of subject domains. They need to have both the code and workloads. There are financial rewards for completing the various selection hurdles.
