Project Description

The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) High-Performance Group (HPG) develops benchmarks that represent large, real applications, in scientific and technical computing, Active benchmark suites include ACCEL (for hardware acceleration using OpenCL, OpenACC, and OpenMP standards), and MPI. A new generation of MPI+X benchmarks is currently under development. Due to their widespread recognition and use, the SPEC HPG benchmarks serve as an important vehicle for communication between users and developers of tested environments.

As active members of SPEC HPG, OLCF staff work to ensure the benchmarks reflect key challenges of user applications, system architectures, and tool implementations for current and future OLCF systems.
