Benchmark puts pressure on 32-, 64bit processors

Keywords:CoreMark-Pro  processor performance  32bit processor  64bit processor  Android-based systems 

The original CoreMark was downloaded 13,000 times, and 500 scores using it have been posted. They include tests of chips from Atmel, Freescale, Imagination, Microchip, NXP, Renesas and STMicroelectronics.

Separately, EEMBC is working on several other benchmarks including a processor-agnostic suite for servers and an update of its existing benchmark for low-power controllers.

In addition, the group hopes to release later this year a systems-level benchmark for IoT end nodes. It will simulate and measure sensor input and communications output as well as MCU performance.

EEMBC also revived a networking working group. It aims to update a 10-year-old networking benchmark, targeting emerging features in software-defined networks and network function virtualisation.

"It's still a little abstract at the moment, but the working group is meeting regularly again after a six- to seven-year hiatus—it's a top priority," Levy said.
