Superset of other benchmarks


HINT can predict the performance of other benchmarks with high accuracy. In most cases the correlation was found to be higher than 0.995 with monotone ranking. Most of the fixed size parallel and serial benchmarks, like LINPACK, NAS, SPEC, are found to be sample points of the generic HINT curve. The small problem size benchmarks like Fhourstone, Whetstone, correlate well with the left side of HINT curve indicating, low memory bandwidth and computation requirements. Benchmark like STREAM and SPECfp correlates well with the right side of the HINT curve indicating high traffic on the memory bus and large problem size.
