We will not have SPEC numbers until after the next funding round. SPEC.org is a standards group with strict membership and publication rules that restrict use of the benchmarks to group members. Membership is relatively inexpensive for academic use, but commercial entities such as Mill Computing must pay substantial fees to join or use the benchmarks. That is, the fees are not substantial for the like of Intel, but they are for us.

SPEC.org does valuable work and needs the fees to provide its services to the community. We don’t object to the fees, but find that in practice they are not in our budget.
