Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite 1.6.0 "Tydal" Alpha 2
The second development release in the road to Phoronix Test Suite 1.6.0 "Tydal" is now available. This release brings a number of new user features, pts-core improvements, and bug fixes...
The automatic desktop environment detection is definetely a great feature.
I noticed a huge performance drop (up to 50%) on my old Computer with an X1600 when running KDE4 in background.
I tested version 1 or so and there were some problems while using it on a PPC architecture. Are other architectures supported now (if the game is available of course)?
And I would like to see how much compiling with flags makes applications faster, are flags supported, and the comparison with different/no flags enabled?
x86 and x86_64 are always well tested. Beyond that, I don't have any access to PowerPC hardware so that goes untested. However, in recent versions, there is more work with architecture detection and test profiles that notify pts-core whether they have architecture limitations, etc. I'd be interested in knowing how it works for you on PowerPC.

Sorry, I have no linux on a mac any more and I brought a new pc, so I have no possibility to test any more.
