    Integer and floating point throughput on SPEC* CPU2006

Integer and Floating Point Throughput

SPEC* CPU2006 is a benchmark to measure system efficiency during integer and floating point operations. It consists of an integer test suite containing 12 applications and a floating point test suite containing 17 applications which are extremely computing-intensive and concentrate on the CPU and memory. Other components, such as disk I/O and network, are not measured by this benchmark. SPEC CPU2006 contains two different methods of performance measurement: The first method, "speed", determines the time required to complete a single task. The second method, "rate", determines the throughput, i.e. how many tasks can be completed in parallel. Both methods are additionally subdivided into two measuring runs, "base" and "peak", which differ in the way the compiler optimization is used. The "base" values are always used when results are published, and the "peak" values are optional.

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. Results are "measured estimates" by Intel using the SPEC benchmark software cited and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance.

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

5. 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.

6. Available on select Intel® Core™ processors. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires an Intel® HT Technology-enabled system. Consult your PC manufacturer. 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.

7. 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.
