PARKBENCH FFT KERNEL BENCHMARK
The computational of the fast Fourier transforms (FFTs) is the
cornerstone of many supercomputer applications. These include not
only the predictable digital signal processing, speech recognition,
image processing, and petroleum seismic analysis, but also other less
obvious applications, such as in computational fluid dynamics, medical
technology, multiple precision arithmetic and computational number
The PARKBENCH suite includes one large 3-D FFT test kernel.
This kernel may be obtained in the current
3-D FFT. The PARKBENCH 3-D FFT kernel is the 3-D FFT PDE
benchmark from the
NAS Parallel Benchmark suite.
It performs the essence of many spectral codes and is a rigorous
test of long-distance communication performance.
