SPEC releases CPU2006 benchmark

Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation logoAfter releasing SPECviewperf 9 on tuesday, the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation releases their CPU2006 benchmark:

“CPU2006 is SPEC’s next-generation, industry-standardized, CPU-intensive benchmark suite, stressing a system’s processor, memory subsystem and compiler. SPEC designed CPU2006 to provide a comparative measure of compute-intensive performance across the widest practical range of hardware using workloads developed from real user applications. These benchmarks are provided as source code and require the user to be comfortable using compiler commands as well as other commands via a command interpreter using a console or command prompt window in order to generate executable binaries.”

Although SPECviewperf 9 is free to download, CPU2006 isn’t; a retail version costs 800 USD, an upgrade 400 USD and a license for Educational/non-profit organization is 200 USD. It can be purchased through their online-ordering system.
