ABSTRACT
Multimedia applications are becoming increasingly impor-
tant for a large class of general-purpose processors. Con-
temporary media applications are highly complex and de-
mand high performance. A distinctive feature of these ap-
plications is that they have significant parallelism, includ-
ing thread- , data-, and instruction-level parallelism, that is
potentially well-aligned with the increasing parallelism sup-
ported by emerging multi-core architectures. Designing sys-
tems to meet the demands of these applications therefore re-
quires a benchmark suite comprising these complex applica-
tions and that exposes the parallelism present in them.
This paper makes two contributions. First, it presents
