SPEC announces SPECpower_ssj2008

Today SPEC announced SPECpower_ssj2008, the first industry standard power performance benchmark. It measures electric power used at various load levels from active idle to 100% of possible throughput. The workload tested is a server side Java workload. The methodology is applicable to many workloads, and I hope in the future we will see more standard benchmarks, and application of these methods to measuring power consumption of customers' own workloads. This benchmark is the result of long hard work by dedicated engineers from many companies, universities, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Congratulations!
