benchmark (Or VAX Unit of Performance, VUP) The processing
power normally attributed to a Digital Equipment Corporation
VAX 11/780. Future VAX systems were rated according to this
scale (e.g. VAX 8350's being 2.7 VUPs per CPU). A MicroVAX
II is normally associated with 0.9 VUPs and at a later time
the MicroVUP was coined to rate VAX workstations. The use
of the VUP by Digital Equipment Corporation has been replaced
with more standard benchmarks (SPECint and SPECfp) in the
DEC Alpha processor systems.
