A suite of scientific and engineering programs that are
representative of applications run on high-performance computers has been collected
in a joint effort of several US research and development orgainizations. The
codes are being used for benchmarking computer systems as well as for the
purpose of evaluating new concepts and developments in high-performance computing.
The Perfect Benchmarks codes are available free of charge for non-commercial use. Signing of a licence agreement is necessary.
Official reports of Perfect benchmarking results can be found in CSRD technical reports "Perfect Report 1", "Perfect Report2", and addenda. They can be ordered in hardcopy from email@example.com.
If you are iterested in obtaining these codes please fill out the
no-cost licence agreement (PostScript
format) (PDF format) and fax it to us
