(1) Acronym for Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation, a nonprofit corporation set up by many computer and microprocessor vendors to create a standard set of benchmark tests. The most widely used set of tests, known as SPEC CPU2000 contains two benchmark suites: CINT2000 for measuring and comparing compute-intensive integer performance, and CFP2000 for measuring and comparing compute-intensive floating point performance. The SPEC CPU2000 benchmark tests are also called CPU2000 tests.

SPEC CPU95 preceded SPEC CPU2000 which will be followed by CPU2006.
