TPC-Pricing
The TPC Pricing Subcommittee was chartered to recommend revisions to the existing pricing methodology so that prices used in published TPC results are verifiable. In the course of this activity, a decision was made to develop a single pricing specification that is consistent for all TPC benchmark. This specification is now complete.

Goals Addressed by the Pricing Specification

The TPC revised its existing pricing methodology so that prices used in published TPC results are verifiable. In the course of this activity, a single pricing specification was developed to be consistent across all TPC benchmark.

 
Comparability With Existing Results
  • No significant change in what is priced.
  • The adoption of the pricing specification will allow all current results to be comparable with results that use the pricing specification.

Existing Benchmark Specification Updates Required
  • Each benchmark specification must be updated to recognize the Pricing Specification.
  • In the rare case where there may appear to be a conflict between the Price Specification and a Benchmark Specification, the language in the Price Specification takes precedence.

Pricing Specification Version 1.7
  • The current version (V1.7) of the Pricing Specification was accepted in the November 2011 meeting. The specification has been edited and updated to account for SSD devices.
  • All results published under prior pricing rules are comparable with those published under the new version.
