Benchmark on Supercomputers for an Industrial Environment

  • E. Vergison


The aim of this study is to provide an industrial scientific and technical computer center with a reliable and exhaustive tool for making comparisons of performances between different computers including those of the new generation (parallel and vector machines).


Single Precision Float Point Operation Subroutine Call Basic Linear Algebra Loop Distribution 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
