MGRID Benchmarks

In the paper

Optimizing Application Performance on x64 Prcessor-based Systems with PGI Compilers and Tools

it refers on page 5 to the MGRID benchmark. Is this benchmark only in FORTRAN or is it in c also? Where can I download this package of benchmarks?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi THX1138,

The MGRID they used in this paper was from the SPEC OMP2001 benchmark suite. Though, this version is based on the MG benchmark from the NAS Parallel Benchmarks (http://www.nas.nasa.gov/publications/npb.html). There are C version available as well: http://aces.snu.ac.kr/Center_for_Manycore_Programming/SNU_NPB_Suite.html

Hope this helps,
Mat
