AMD APU Benchmarks Of LLVM Clang 3.3 vs. SVN

For the Phoronix readers that have been requesting more benchmarks of AMD's APUs and then separately for the requests of a fresh round of LLVM/Clang compiler benchmarks, your wish has been granted.

Up this weekend are some simple and quick LLVM/Clang C/C++ compiler benchmarks I ran recently on Ubuntu Linux. The benchmarks provide a glimpse of the AMD A10-6800K performance (overclocked to 4.70GHz) and running Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.13 Git kernel while comparing the LLVM Clang 3.3 package found in the Saucy archive against the latest LLVM Clang 3.5 SVN code. Testing out the latest Clang code on Debian/Ubuntu distributions is easy using their daily archive.

I'll have LLVM Clang 3.3 vs. LLVM Clang 3.4 benchmarks shortly with the 3.4 release due out later this month. LLVM Clang 3.4 is bringing a ton of new compiler features that are really exciting. The forthcoming Clang benchmarks that will be very comprehensive and be done from other Intel/AMD systems will also compare the performance to GCC 4.8 vs. GCC 4.9, the next Free Software Foundation compiler release due in early 2014 with many new features of its own.

The new LLVM Clang compiler benchmark comparison from the AMD APU Ubuntu Linux system can be found via 1312033-SO-LLVMCLANG98. Embedded below are just a few of the results so hit up that link for the rest of the compiler benchmarks. There might be some regressions! But stay tuned for the complete compiler analysis.
