Published benchmarks on Phoronix already of the Gazelle Professional include:

- Ubuntu 13.04 vs. 13.10 benchmarks to show off the performance difference for the Intel Haswell laptop with the latest Linux code.

- Early LLVM/Clang 3.4 benchmarks.

- XMir performance benchmarks compared to a pure X.Org Server with the current Ubuntu 13.10 development packages.

In this article for getting a better idea of the Intel Haswell Linux laptop performance, the System76 Gazelle Professional was compared to:

ASUS K56CA Ultrabook - An Intel "Ivy Bridge" laptop/ultrabook with an Intel Core i3 3217U CPU, 4GB of RAM, 500GB Hitachi SATA HDD and 24GB SanDisk SSD, Intel HD 4000 graphics, and 1366 x 768 display.

HP EliteBook 1611C - An Intel "Sandy Bridge" laptop which model served as Intel's Software Development Vehicle for Sandy Bridge. This laptop features an Intel Core i5 2520M with HD 3000 graphics, 4GB of RAM, and a 160GB Intel SSD.

All three laptops were loaded with an updated Ubuntu 13.04 stack boasting the Linux 3.8 kernel, Unity 7.0, Mesa 9.1.3, and the GCC 4.7 compiler.

These comparison benchmarks were limited to other recent Intel mobile laptops within our labs and the benchmark results are for reference purposes comparing the high-end Intel Haswell laptop performance to previous-generation Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge laptops. All benchmarking was handled in a fully automated manner using the Phoronix Test Suite software.
