LLVMpipe Performance On AMD Bulldozer, Intel Sandy Bridge
Phoronix: LLVMpipe Performance On AMD Bulldozer, Intel Sandy Bridge
With the renewed interest in the Gallium3D LLVMpipe driver now that this software-based acceleration method is working with GNOME Shell, here are some benchmarks of this LLVM-based software driver when running some OpenGL tests on Intel Sandy Bridge and AMD Bulldozer hardware.
What is interesting here is that Bulldozer does well.
All the negativity associated with Bulldozer just doesn't seem to be based in fact. For a first generation processor the unit is not really that bad. If AMD can up the number of instructions per cycle even a little bit it will be a strng performer moving forward.
I would think AMD has it in them.
It shouldn't be a problem, remember when AMD actually lead Intel.
