Title Application performance on accelerators
Abstract This document describes an accelerator benchmark suite, a set of 11 codes that includes 1 synthetic benchmark and 10 commonly used applications. The key focus of this task has been exploiting accelerators or co-processors to improve the performance of real applications. It aims at providing a set of scalable, currently relevant and publically available codes and datasets. This work has been undertaken by Task7.2B "Accelerator Benchmarks" in the PRACE Fourth Implementation Phase (PRACE-4IP) project. Most of the selected application are a subset of the Unified European Applications Benchmark Suite (UEABS) [2][3]. One application and a synthetic benchmark have been added. As a result, selected codes are: Alya, Code_Saturne, CP2K, GROMACS, GPAW, NAMD, PFARM, QCD, Quantum Espresso, SHOC and SPECFEM3D. For each code either two or more test case datasets have been selected. These are described in this document, along with a brief introduction to the application codes themselves. For each code, some sample results are presented, from first run on leading edge systems and prototypes.
