News.com: Supercomputer ranking method faces revision
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Monday, June 21, 2004 (1 comment)
Submitter An article by Stephen Shankland:

``An effort by PC makers to move beyond a single, simple speed measurement for showing computing performance is now being matched by a similar push in the world of supercomputers--and not everyone is applauding the change.

``An organizer of the Top500 supercomputer rankings has produced a broader test suite that measures multiple dimensions of a machine's performance. By comparison, a mathematical test called Linpack is currently used to rank systems on the Top500 list, which is released twice a year with much fanfare.

```For a long time it's been clear to all of us (that) we needed to have more than just Linpack,' said Jack Dongarra, a University of Tennessee professor who helped create Linpack and who's now working on a suite of tests that go beyond pure number-crunching prowess. `No single number can reflect the overall performance of a machine.'''

Working on 2.0

Folks: Work is actively progressing on 2.0 (2.4 really). Big changes (good ones) to the run model, the test specification model, and related. Should be out soon. Joe
