The Dense LU Matrix Factorization with the C-written SciMark goes up by 30% on the AMD workstation and 49% for the high-end Intel system and its $999 USD processor.

Himeno benchmarks have already been delivered in previous articles for the AMD Opteron and Intel Sandy Bridge systems. For the Intel Gulftown system, installing Dirndl causes a performance boost of 329%.

Likewise, Dirndl on the Intel Gulftown hardware improves the multi-threaded C-Ray ray-tracing performance by over 75%.

Stay tuned for next week. Many Phoronix readers will be especially excited to hear what is being open-sourced and made available free to the public. There may also be some sort of "special treat" to Phoronix readers depending upon the date of the official announcement.
