SPEC CPU benchmarks are commonly used by compiler writers and architects of general purpose processors for performance evaluation. Since the release of the CPU89 suite, the SPEC CPU benchmark suites have evolved, with applications either removed or added or upgraded. This influences the design decisions for the next generation compilers and microarchitectures. In view of the above, it is critical to characterize the applications in the new suite - SPEC CPU2006 - to guide the decision making… CONTINUE READING
