Other people have tried to answer you directly, but I think a
broader response may also be helpful.

There is no such thing as a benchmark for the assessment of
automatic parallelization. Automatic parallelization is too
diverse a field to be coherently represented by a single benchmark,
or even a single family of benchmarks.

I suggest the following questions:

Do you have an application or area of applications you want to study?
Do you have a platform or architecture family you want to study?
Are you interested in a particular programming language, or family?
Are you studying parallelization as part of a broader inquery?
