Several test profiles were updated this night on OpenBenchmarking.org
for Phoronix Test Suite
has been updated against the latest 2.2.1 upstream release.
has also been updated against its latest upstream code.
- John The Ripper
is now running off version 1.8.0.
now uses the latest upstream release of 1.11.6.
is also now using the latest upstream code too.
- Last but not least, OpenSSL
has been updated against its latest upstream release and a few other tweaks made.
Those updates are on top of the hundreds of other tests
available for automated execution and setup via the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking platform. Some other newer tests worth mentioning are HPCG
and HPCC + Open Porous Media
With the fresh round of test profile updates for these Linux / open-source CPU/system tests, one could assume I am on the heels of some fresh benchmarking. That is true; however, if you were hoping for a launch-day article next week covering an important hardware launch, sadly those hopes were quashed on Friday thanks to the snow storm still delaying UPS/FedEx shipments in the Chicago area... I have some interesting hardware stuck from delivery but there will be some interesting Linux hardware reviews then later next week. This weekend though I'll run some fresh benchmarks on older CPUs though and will hopefully share those results on Sunday for those curious about the latest Intel/AMD Linux CPU performance with the very latest kernel and other software components.
