New CoreMark-Pro benchmark from @eembc_org targets 32-, 64-bit processors #MWC15 #MIPS

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC ), a trade group of 47 chip and system designers, released CoreMark-Pro. The suite of benchmarks for 32- and 64-bit processors expands the original CoreMark, a single performance test released in 2009 for microcontrollers and processors. The CoreMark-Pro suite provides a much richer set of metrics for high-end chips and also provides an extension of the group’s AndEBench, a suite of tests for Android-based systems. The consortium also is working on systems benchmarks for the Internet of Things and networking infrastructure. CoreMark-Pro consists of five integer and four floating-point tests. The integer workloads include JPEG compression, Zip compression, an XML parser, the SHA-256 security algorithm, and a more memory-intensive version of the original CoreMark. The floating-point workloads include ...
