LLVM/Clang Performance On Intel Sandy Bridge

Compiler

Lately there's been a lot of compiler benchmarks on Phoronix, particularly when looking at the performance on AMD's Bulldozer architecture and their FX-8150 system. However, here's some more compiler benchmarks, but this time under Intel Sandy Bridge.

Among the recent compiler articles have been:

- GCC 4.6, LLVM/Clang 3.0, Open64 Benchmarks
- Open64 Compiler Tuning On AMD Bulldozer FX-8150
- AMD Bulldozer With GCC, Open64, LLVM/Clang Compilers

Those are just the compiler articles on Phoronix this month so far. I also have some Sandy Bridge results comparing GCC 4.6.1, LLVM/Clang 2.9, and the LLVM/Clang 3.0 SVN code. Testing was with the stock compiler flags, etc.

This isn't a normal full-length article, but for those interested in the results can find and play with them on OpenBenchmarking.org. The testing happened last month from a ZaReason Chimera notebook with plenty of RAM, a fast SSD, and an Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor.

From OpenBenchmarking.org you can easily compare the performance to other systems, etc. These are just some extra results I had handy from this ZaReason notebook, so I just wanted to get them out there now for those interested Linux users.
