Computer Science Expert in Performance Benchmarks

Case Description:

A computer science expert was requested for a class action suit filed against a microchip manufacturer. The suit alleged false advertising representations of its processor performance. Plaintiffs maintained that the performance of the computer’s central processing unit, or CPU, showed no improvement over previous models. Claimants admit that the processor chip achieved a higher clock frequency but challenged that it translated into improved performance.

IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an expert in computer science familiar with chip technology, PC systems architecture and benchmarking of systems and processes. The client requested a computer science expert with knowledge and experience in computer architecture, processing and performance modeling, chip caching, and systems performance analysis and enhancement who could opine on industry standards for benchmarking.
