An old SPECmark benchmark result derived from a set of floating-point and integer benchmarks. It is the geometric mean of ten SPEC ratios of the outdated 1989 SPEC benchmark suite. The use of SPECmark89 is strongly discouraged, having been superseded by CINT92 and CFP92.

- Spec rate
benchmark Results of the throughput measurement using SPEC benchmark suites CINT92 and CFP92. With the throughput measurement method, several copies of a given benchmark are executed. The method is particularly suitable for multiprocessor systems. The results, called SPEC rate, express how many jobs of a particular type (characterised by the individual benchmark) can be executed […]
- Spec ratio
benchmark Results for each individual benchmark of the SPEC benchmark suites, for example CINT92 and CFP92, expressed as the ratio of the wall clock time to execute one single copy of the benchmark, compared to a fixed “SPEC reference time”, which was chosen early-on as the execution time on a VAX 11/780. See also SPEC […]
