SciMark 2.0 is a Java benchmark for scientific and numerical computing. It measures several computational kernels and reports a composite score in approximate Mflops (Millions of floating point operations per second). You can run the benchmark directly from your browser, or download the class files and Java source codes to run SciMark 2.0 on a separate Java environment. Afterwards, you may want to submit the results to our database of existing scores.
|Version 2.0||Find out about our new kernels, availability of source code and class files, new units of measurement for score results, and revamped automated submission system. You can also find out how to run our special LARGE version of SciMark 2.0 for out-of-cache problems.|
|Run it Now||Contains instructions on executing SciMark 2.0 and reporting results. You can compare with other platforms on a kernel-by-kernel basis to see how your environment performs on specific algorithms.|
|SciMark 2.0 scores||We keep an up-to-the minute list of contributed scores for various Java platforms. If you submit a score, our database is updated immediately.|
|Download||If you want to run SciMark 2.0 outside your browser, there is access to the class files as well as Java and C source codes.|
|About||Find out about the design of SciMark 2.0, and why we built it. Includes details on kernels chosen for SciMark and how to get meaningful information about your Java platform from your benchmark scores.|
