CAP Bench: a benchmark suite for performance and energy evaluation of low-power many-core processors

Abstract : SUMMARY The constant need for faster and more energy-efficient processors has been stimulating the development of new architectures, such as low-power many-core architectures. Researchers aiming to study these architectures are challenged by peculiar characteristics of some components such as Networks-on-Chip and lack of specific tools to evaluate their performance. In this context, the goal of this paper is to present a benchmark suite to evaluate state-of-the-art low-power many-core architectures such as the Kalray MPPA-256 low-power processor, which features 256 compute cores in a single chip. The benchmark was designed and used to highlight important aspects and details that need to be considered when developing parallel applications for emerging low-power many-core architectures. As a result, this paper demonstrates that the benchmark offers a diverse suite of programs with regard to parallel patterns, job types, communication intensity and task load strategies, suitable for a broad understanding of performance and energy consumption of MPPA-256 and upcoming many-core architectures.
