To re-create the results above or generate your own submission-quality SPEC CPU2006 results using PGI compilers, you will need the following:

  • The SPEC CPU2006 benchmarks, which can be purchased through www.spec.org
  • A copy of the PGI compilers, which can be purchased by contacting PGI Sales or calling 1-888-672-1081
  • A valid "config" file, which contains configuration and compiler options information for a given benchmark run; the links in the table above refer to pages with information and links to valid config files that can be used as-is to generate SPEC CPU2006 results

Once you have each of these components, follow the instructions included with the SPEC CPU2006 benchmarks to initiate a run using the SPEC benchmarks run harness.
