GCC 4.7 AMD Bulldozer Compiler Tuning
As the latest AMD Bulldozer Linux benchmarks, here are updated figures on compiler tuning for the FX-8150 processor when using GCC 4.7.1.
This compiler testing on the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer was done by using GCC 4.7.1 while swapping out the "-march=" compiler option value within the CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS.
