benchmark The average of a set of floating-point and
integer SPEC benchmark results.
While the old average SPECmark89 has been popular with the
industry and the press, SPEC has intentionally *not* defined
an average "SPECmark92" over all CPU benchmarks of the
1992 suites (CINT92 and CFP92), for the following reasons:
With 6 integer (CINT92) and 14 floating-point (CFP92)
benchmarks, the average would be biased too much toward
floating-point. Customers' workloads are different, some
integer-only, some floating-point intensive, some mixed.
Current processors have developed their strengths in a more
diverse way (some more emphasizing integer performance, some
more floating-point performance) than in 1989.
