Phoronix: LLVM 2.7 Makes Its Debut With Many Features
Last week we compared LLVM and Clang against GCC following the release of GCC 4.5 and found the newer compiler infrastructure that's sponsored by Apple to not perform as well as the GNU Compiler Collection in a number of areas at this time, but today LLVM 2.7 is out. Version 2.7 of the Low-Level Virtual Machine brings forward many improvements to both core LLVM itself and the Clang compiler front-end...
Is there any chance there will be new benchmarks comparing various versions of GCC to LLVM 2.7?
I think the most important versions of GCC to test are 4.2.1, GCC 4.4.3 and GCC 4.5.0. FreeBSD is stuck on GCC 4.2.1 while most distributions use GCC 4.4.3. GCC 4.5.0 is not really used, but it will be in the future, so seeing it included in such a comparison would be a nice touch.
