      Michael said clearly that he made up the codename.

        There were compiler tests a few months ago that included ICC and IIRC the performance difference wasn't as pronounced as in these tests.

        The company in question may offer something "special" to Phoronix readers if the release is pushed back to next week
        Alright!!! I hope it's one of those slick new Samsung Galaxy Tabs 8.9

            And yet, you waste your time posting on these threads. XD

                @Michael:
                While you're dressing up mesa, please put Wine in a Dirndl, too, and walk them through PTS together. I sense that some sexy bar(graph)s could arise from these tinkerings.

                  As for what this release pertains, speedups like 2x, 2.5x etc indicates to me that this is a combined cpu+gpu (gpgpu) compiler
                  I tend to agree. The compiler big boys might skip a percent for maintainability, but will hardly leave factors of two or three hanging loose. And while there can always be delays when converting from proprietary to open-source licenses, what over-hyped developer-oriented event in Bellevue next week could possibly give a marketing type pause to consider the timing of this sort of developer-oriented release?

                    I think, after some research on Internet, that the company in question could be pathscale, which developps compilers. They announced one year ago that they were developping a new gggpu compiler, conccurrent of cuda and opencl, that they intend to make open source . See these links :
