What does D-S mean or stand for ?
Dhrystone benchmark test was used to check the CPU performance of old system computers in the mid 1980s. Its main objective was to see how long it would take for the CPU to compile,execute and compute the number of iterations per second.
The resultant code would be generated and the D-S was calculated this way.It was a good way to gauge the computational efficiency of PCs.
