In regards to the impressive open-source launch I alluded to yesterday, I am told by a company representative that "the ball is rolling" and it's being pushed to go out today. Though based upon the time now, and that the press release is going out via PRNewsWire, I would guess it may not hit the wire until midnight (EST). Regardless, the Phoronix information exposing this project we've codenamed "Dirndl" is ready.

Dirndl is just the codename being used until the information is of public knowledge (well, most of it is, if you know where to look) when the results can be properly and professionally shared. Regardless, Dirndl on Linux delivers mighty attractive results. As a final exclusive preview until the announcement happens, here are some more results from an AMD Opteron 2384 quad-core workstation.

Dirndl is twice as fast as a stock Ubuntu 11.04 installation for the multi-threaded C-Ray ray-tracing test.

Dirndl is 2.23x faster for the computational TSCP chess program.

Like yesterday's Dirndl benchmark of an Intel Sandy Bridge, the AMD Opteron wearing a dirndl also delivers great results for the Himeno program.

Full details will come in a few hours.
