GPC Project Groups' Rules and Fees
for Publishing Results in GPC News

The following rules and fee schedules have been set for member and non-member companies that wish to publish performance numbers on-line in the GPC News. For more information on outside submissions visit http://www.spec.org/gpc/nonmember.html.

APC Project Group.

Non-Member Publishing

Non-members of the APC project group may submit performance results at a cost of $200 per configuration for each benchmark. Payment must be received before results are placed on-line. Any change in hardware or software constitutes a new configuration. Rules 2, 3 and 4 for members also apply to non-members submitting performance results for publication.

Member Publishing

  1. Paying members of the APC project group can submit as many performance results as they wish without additional fees.
  2. A configuration will be published on-line for one year, unless the submitter notifies the publisher that it should be removed. After one year, the configuration will be removed automatically, unless the submitter notifies the publisher that it should remain on-line. There are no additional fees for extending on-line publication beyond one year.
  3. The APC project group may remove configurations as a result of revisions in any given application benchmark. In this case, the vendor will be given notice by the project group and may, at no charge, resubmit the identical configuration for the revised benchmark.
  4. A new configuration is defined as any that requires a change in the hardware or software section of the submittal form.

Contact the APC project group if you are interested in publishing performance results or if you would like more information on membership.
