The recently released Rodinia benchmark suite enables users to evaluate heterogeneous systems including both accelerators, such as GPUs, and multicore CPUs. As Rodinia sees higher levels of acceptance, it becomes important that researchers understand this new set of benchmarks, especially in how they differ from previous paper. In this paper, the authors present recent extensions to Rodinia and conduct a detailed characterization of the Rodinia benchmarks (including performance results on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX480, the first product released based on the Fermi architecture).
