Pity Michael had to steel their thunder but I am looking forward to rebuilding my Gentoo system with this
Yeah, I'll probably do that as well at some point I hope it can compile wine. Anything but the most basic of optimisation with gcc causes crashes with wine at the moment. Would love to squeeze a few more FPS out of it
Hope distributions will provide kernels compiled with it, maybe different kernels for specific processors (Phenom, Turion, i7 etc.). Or maybe the full distribution compiled with performance optimisations.
Wasn't pathscale already involved in Open64, and path64?
Either way, I have my doubts about anything truly far-reaching being announced, but if it's something nice and compiler related, then any article is going to have to be pretty well thought out (including which benchmarks are run, and what they're compared to), or else everybody is likely to rip it to shreds.
