GCC 4.9 Compiler Benchmarks On A Dual-Core Haswell
Phoronix: GCC 4.9 Compiler Benchmarks On A Dual-Core Haswell
While extensive benchmarks of the GCC 4.9 development compiler are currently ongoing, here's a preview of the performance that the GNU Compiler Collection is set to offer in 2014 with its next major update. For this article an Intel Pentium "Haswell" dual-core processor was tested on a GCC 4.9 development snapshot and compared to GCC 4.8.2 and GCC 4.7.3 in a wide variety of C/C++ workloads. New LLVM Clang 3.4 benchmarks are also happening.
It would be pretty sweet if the entity you are benchmarking against other versions (in this case GCC 4.9 against previous GCC versions) was a different color so the eyes can quickly recognize the bar that represents the focus of the benchmarks.
