Benchmarks using single problems are often of limited value or
even totally useless. E.g. the Spec benchmark measures
mainly memory throughput and the size of the largest cache. I
would like to see more Hint benchmark results because these are
are much more meaningful than single-number benchmarks. Hint is
designed to compare different machines in different
memory regimes (like cache, RAM, swap) and not different
combinations of machines, problems and compilers (like Spec).
the Hint benchmark I have used here. The Hint benchmark is
Open Source (GPL).
which the results have been generated.
The results below are roughly sorted by peak performance with
data type "double".
Thanks to Oliver
Munich) who has contributed much of the data.
If you can contribute more benchmark results, please let me
) know and I will collect the data
The fall off of the "double" performance after about 1 GB and
end of the data at about 5 GB does not occur because the machine
becomes slow, but because of the limited accuracy of the double
data type. Only the "long long" data type sufficiently exercises
The machine was kindly provided by Mikerohard for a test.
This benchmark was sponsored by ASKOS.
