STREAM Benchmark Author McCalpin Traces System Balance Trends

November 7, 2016

When Dr. John D. McCalpin introduced the STREAM benchmark in 1991, it had already become become clear that peak arithmetic rate was not an adequate measure of HPC system performance for many applications. Since then, CPU performance has continued to outpace memory performance measures, leading to the processor-memory speed gap, known as the memory wall. In an invited talk at SC16, McCalpin will trace the history of changing “balances” between computation, memory latency, and memory bandwidth and will explore the impact to the next-generation of HPC systems.
