SPEC Ships CPU2000 V1.3

As of November 1, 2005, SPEC is shipping Version 1.3 of its popular CPU2000 benchmark suite. All new orders for SPEC CPU2000 will automatically receive this version; licensees of previous versions can receive a free update by contacting the SPEC office at and providing their license information.

SPEC CPU2000 V1.3 provides additional platform support and addresses several issues and bugs that were discovered in V1.2. All of the changes are meant to improve the usability and portability of the CPU2000 tools and benchmarks. The workloads have not changed, and results generated with V1.3 are comparable to results with Version 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2. (On its results pages, SPEC will not distinguish between versions).

For details on the changes, please see changes_in_V1.3.html.
