Uh, ok. What would you deem relevant? Boot up time? How long does it take to launch candy crush?That has to be ironic, SPECint has absolutely nothing to do with the real world, it is purely a synthetic benchmark :
Nearly all of those are completely irrelevant to real world workloads performed by your average user. Even for me, someone who knows what all of those tests entail it still means nothing.
00.perlbench C Perl Programming Language Derived from Perl V5.8.7. The workload includes SpamAssassin, MHonArc (an email indexer), and specdiff (SPEC's tool that checks benchmark outputs). 401.bzip2 C Compression Julian Seward's bzip2 version 1.0.3, modified to do most work in memory, rather than doing I/O. 403.gcc C C Compiler Based on gcc Version 3.2, generates code for Opteron. 429.mcf C Combinatorial Optimization Vehicle scheduling. Uses a network simplex algorithm (which is also used in commercial products) to schedule public transport. 445.gobmk C Artificial Intelligence: go playing Plays the game of Go, a simply described but deeply complex game. 456.hmmer C Search Gene Sequence Protein sequence analysis using profile hidden Markov models (profile HMMs) 458.sjeng C Artificial Intelligence: chess playing A highly-ranked chess program that also plays several chess variants. 462.libquantum C Physics: Quantum Computing Simulates a quantum computer, running Shor's polynomial-time factorization algorithm. 464.h264ref C Video Compression A reference implementation of H.264/AVC, encodes a videostream using 2 parameter sets. The H.264/AVC standard is expected to replace MPEG2 471.omnetpp C++ Discrete Event Simulation Uses the OMNet++ discrete event simulator to model a large Ethernet campus network. 473.astar C++ Path-finding Algorithms Pathfinding library for 2D maps, including the well known A* algorithm. 483.xalancbmk C++ XML Processing
Huh ? Wouldn't it be strange if I were to hate on something that I will buy ?
