Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 16 November 2011. Page 6 of 6. 38 Comments

Slightly more time was needed to compile software under Open64 5.0 compared to Open64 4.2.4.

There are a few performance regressions in select benchmarks with Open64 5.0, but overall there was a slight performance improvement and quite a noticeable improvement in some compute tests. When using the "bdver1" compiler optimization flags, however, there was not any greater improvement in Open64 5.0 relative to the stock CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS.
