I need to prepare a benchmarking result which compares the relative performance(running time) of Rust compared to C/C++. One suggestion I got for benchmarking is the "CoreMark" benchmark for C.
However, the "CoreMark" benchmark rather seems like a benchmark aimed to test the performance of the hardware CPU, and not the language itself.
My experience with Rust is not long(3 months), so I'd really appreciate it if I could get some advice here! What would be a good target benchmark to reasonably compare performance of Rust code with C/C++ code ?? Also, what properties should a benchmark have in order to highlight the weakness of Rust in terms of running time (compared to C/C++) ??
