TPC-DS Version 2 and Version 3

Over the past few years the industry has seen increases in performance and decreases in costs of computer and database systems.
The TPC is introducing V3.0 of the TPC-DS Benchmark to accommodate these trends and maintain the relevance of the Price/Performance metric.
The primary change in this major revision is to adjust the Price/Performance metric by a multiplier of 1,000.

The results shown for TPC-DS V3 contain results that were converted from TPC-DS V2 to the new specification.

TPC-DS is a Decision Support Benchmark
TPC-DS is a decision support benchmark that models several generally applicable aspects of a decision support system, including queries and data maintenance. The benchmark provides a representative evaluation of performance as a general purpose decision support system. A benchmark result measures query response time in single user mode, query throughput in multi user mode and data maintenance performance for a given hardware, operating system, and data processing system configuration under a controlled, complex, multi-user decision support workload. The purpose of TPC benchmarks is to provide relevant, objective performance data to industry users. TPC-DS enables emerging technologies, such as Big Data systems, to execute the benchmark. The TPC-DS Price/Performance metric is expressed as Price/QphDS@Size for Version 2 and Price/kQphDS@Size for Version 3.
