CPU, as a central component of a computer system, has been required as a unit which can dynamically handle more and more threads, and thus single thread application can benefit from thread-splitting or thread-rotating, multi-thread application can benefit from physical level threads-oriented optimizations, together with dynamic power consumption/frequency adjustment, the computing power of a processor system then to be determined. By current computer architecture, it is considered that physical memory (mostly managed by hardware side) and virtual memory (mostly managed by operating software side) together as a memory system is a non-divisional part of forming a processor system. And thus, in order to suit the trend of multi-threaded computing environment, a bottleneck effect of the memory system needs to be minimized in order to gain the most execution rate of a processor system at a certain frequency.
SciMark Processors is a software pack in SciMark serials to measure computing power of a processor system by executing its instructions single-thread and multi-thread. It will automatically show efficiency of threading.
Professional Edition is more suitable for advanced users. It is more focusing on showing advance of multi-threading and stability of such system by executing extended instructions, iit is a software to show how multi-processor system can improve total computing power straight clearly.It will also show how multi-thread system demands more system resources.
