Phoronix: The "Dirndl" On AMD Opterons Are Impressive
In regards to the impressive open-source launch I alluded to yesterday, I am told by a company representative that "the ball is rolling" and it's being pushed to go out today. Though based upon the time now, and that the press release is going out via PRNewsWire, I would guess it may not hit the wire until midnight (EST). Regardless, the Phoronix information exposing this project we've codenamed "Dirndl" is ready...
I'm really curious as to how this would affect two things:
2) MLT (used by Kdenlive to composite video effects)
I recently started video editing on a similar rig (2x 2352's, same mobo that I bought after the phoronix review of the initial barcelona release), and while I'm fine editing SD video (10 effects on three layers, smooth as butter. scales to 8 cores real well), I would love some performance increase for when I do projects in HD.
I suppose the implied wish here is for an MLT benchmark in the PTS, preferably with the frei0r plugins.
Anyways, the improvement in floating point is mighty impressive, I'm excited.
