Chromebook Cortex-A15: GCC 4.8 vs. LLVM/Clang 3.3

It's been a while since last publicly releasing any GCC vs. LLVM/Clang compiler benchmarks from the Samsung Chromebook with Exynos 5 Dual Cortex-A15 SoC. However, uploaded to OpenBenchmarking.org I have now released some new results.

On the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook with Exynos 5 Dual, I've upgraded the operating system to Ubuntu 13.10 and was doing some trial runs of GCC 4.8.1 and LLVM/Clang 3.3 as packaged in the Ubuntu "Saucy" archive for ARM.

For those curious about the performance, the C/C++ benchmark results can be found on OpenBenchmarking.org within 1309037-SO-SAMSUNGCH72. Via the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software you can also carry out your own tests by simply executing phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1309037-SO-SAMSUNGCH72.

If you are more interested in x86/x86_64 than ARM, see my Intel Core i7 LLVM vs. GCC benchmarks on a Haswell CPU and AMD compiler benchmarks from a Richland APU.

Embedded below are just a few of the GCC vs. Clang results on the Cortex-A15 system, so hit up the OpenBenchmarking.org link for all of the results and data in full.
