|Topic||Exploring the Cell with HPEC Challenge Benchmarks|
|Abstract:|| New architectures require
thoughtful testing to explore the performance
potential of the processor. Here the HPEC Challenge
Benchmarks are used to explore the Cell processor to
understand the realistic performance as well as how
that performance can be attained. More specifically,
for the time domain FIR benchmark, we find that a
significant fraction (88%) of the peak performance
can be achieved (as expected). However, this
performance does come at significant coding cost.
