SPECrate_fp92

SPECrate_fp92

(benchmark)
A benchmark result derived from the results of a set of floating-point benchmarks (the geometric mean of 14 SPEC rates from CFP92) run multiple times simultaneously, which can be used to estimate a machine's overall multi-tasking throughput for floating-point code. It is typically used on multiprocessor machines.

SPECrate_fp92 obsoletes SPECfpThruput89.
