We will be using the tests for what's in the Phoronix Test Suite currently and the ones that get committed in the coming weeks. With that said, if there are any benchmarks not found in the Phoronix Test Suite you would like to see included in this big round of benchmarking, let us know ASAP. Ideally, you can also submit a PTS test profile to us too and we will be even happier :) So let us know in the forums so we can begin preparing for this large OS performance comparison for September.
