For the single-threaded POV-Ray compiler test, Open64 5.0 was marginally faster than Open64 4.2.4 in both the stock and "bdver1" configurations. The Bulldozer-specific optimizations continue to noticeably boost the performance for this ray-tracing benchmark.
For the multi-threaded ray-tracing test, Open64 5.0 slightly regresses the performance under the AMD FX-8150 system. The bdver1-specific optimizations continue to be of no use in C-Ray 1.1.
There is no difference to report when it comes to Ogg audio encoding.
Using bdver1-specific optimizations continues to regress the MP3 audio encoding performance. However, Open64 5.0 is slightly faster than Open64 4.2.4.
