SciMark: Java Benchmark for Scientific and Numerical Computing

SciMark is a Java benchmark for scientific and numerical computing. It measures several computational kernels and reports a composite score in approximate Mflops (Millions of floating point operations per second).


It is a composite Java benchmark measuring the performance of numerical codes occurring in scientific and engineering applications. It consists of five computational kernels: FFT, Gauss-Seidel relaxation, Sparse matrix-multiply, Monte Carlo integration, and dense LU factorization.

There are benchmark results for various VMs from Sun, IBM, Apple, BEA, HP running on different platforms from JDK 1.1 to JDK 1.7. Go and check it out. It is interesting!
