- RSIM: a multiprocessor
simulator that models out-of-order superscalar processors.
- PARSEC: a
suite of parallel applications for shared-memory machines that are often
used in parallel architecture studies.
- SPLASH: an
older suite of parallel applications for shared-memory machines that are often
used in parallel architecture studies. (PARSEC is preferable to SPLASH.)
