Benchmarking is as much a science as it is an art, and at times involves a leap of faith for the benchmark consumers. Most people trust provided benchmark suites to be complete, accurate, and consistent. By default, when comparing one processor to another, the benchmark scores are the authority used as a relative measure of performance. Rarely do the benchmark consumers understand or verify the underlying stresses that the benchmarks place on the processors. This study unmasks the stress points of the popular embedded benchmark suite, the EDN Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium Suite (EEMBC), using the technique of Benchmark Characterization (BC).
