A benchmark suite from SPEC, which contains six benchmarks in C performing integer computations. They can be used to estimate the performance of CPU, memory system, and compiler code generation.

The individual programs are Logic Design (2x), Interpreter, Data Compression, Spreadsheet. The approximate size of the suite is 85500 lines of source code without comments.

The benchmark suite can be used either for speed measurement, resulting in SPEC ratios, or for throughput measurement, resulting in SPEC rates
