    Actually, they do: for someone who does not follow LLVM development, it's informational to know it still doesn't support it.

    Then again, this could be just mentioned in the text too

    yes,exactly. “we did not include openmp tests, because LLVM does not support it”.

    LLVM seems to be very fast at matrix multiplication, though.

    So my summary of the results would be:

    * LLVM is great at Successive Jacobi Relaxation.
    * GCC is great at C-Ray.
    * LLVM has no OpenMP support, so don’t even try to use it for scientific code, except if you want to go all the way and use explicit MPI (which makes the SciMark test somewhat less useful).
    I said just about any time, not any time. Yes GCC spanked LLVM/Clang in C-Ray.

    As these forums have proven time and time again, nobody reads the text. You might as well just skip the openMP tests without explanation if that's what you're going to do.
