Attributes of the performance of central processing units: A relative performance prediction model

Phillip Ein-Dor, Jacob Feldmesser

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Using readily available data on CPU characteristics—main memory size, cache memory size, number of channels, and machine cycle time—it is possible to predict relative CPU performance for a wide range of machines. Statistical analyses indicate that these characteristics explain virtually all the variance in relative performance.
