The SPEC ACCEL benchmark tests performance with a suite of computationally intensive parallel applications running under OpenACC. PathScale used their ENZO 2015 compiler to create an OpenACC executable and ran it on an AMD FirePro S9150.
The result:  The code running on an AMD FirePro S9150 delivered the fastest parallel computing solution compared to the previous SPEC ACCEL leader, the PGI 14.2 compiler suite generating code for an NVIDIA K40c.
