Benchmarks Of The Gentoo-Based Calculate Linux Desktop

With the IS.C test within NASA's NAS Parallel Benchmarks the results were not too interesting with the 32-bit and 64-bit testing.

When running our Apache benchmark in the Phoronix Test Suite, Calculate Linux Desktop 10.4 finally shot ahead of its fellow Linux competitors. Calculate Linux Desktop had the best Apache performance on both the Intel Atom and AMD Athlon II X3 systems that was well ahead of where Ubuntu and Sabayon were performing. Fedora results were not available due to technical issues.

When running the always-interesting C-Ray ray-tracing benchmark, Calculate did the best by far on the AMD desktop system but it did the worst with the slower Intel Atom netbook. Calculate 10.4 just took 115 seconds to run the ray-tracing test on the AMD system while the three other distributions each took 142~143 seconds. With the 32-bit Atom netbook, Calculate was the slowest while Ubuntu was the fastest, but the margins were not significant.
