Intel Is Landing More OpenMP 4.0 Functionality In LLVM Clang

In May the LLVM Clang compiler reached the state of complete OpenMP 3.1 support after the liberally licensed compiler saw its OpenMP support stagger for so long out-of-tree. Intel had been leading the recent efforts for getting OpenMP working in Clang and they've continued in working towards OpenMP 4.0 compliance.

How Warm Does The Intel Compute Stick Get?

The Intel Compute Stick packs a lot into a tiny package: 2GB of DDR3L memory, 32GB eMMC storage, Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor with Intel HD Graphics, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11n WiFi, USB 2.0, and a microSD card slot... All into a 103 x 37 x 12 mm package, but how warm does it get under full load? Here's some numbers.

Linux Benchmarks Of Intel's Atom Z3735F On The Compute Stick

The Atom Z3735F is what powers Intel's Compute Stick. The Z373F has a Scenario Design Power of just 2.2 Watts while being a quad-core 64-bit processor with a clock speed of 1.33GHz and a burst frequency of 1.83GHz. This low-power Atom SoC also has Intel HD Graphics that work fine under Linux. In this article are some early test data from the Intel Compute Stick with Ubuntu Linux.

Running Linux On The Intel Compute Stick

The Intel Compute Stick has begun shipping, a tiny device that plugs into any HDMI TV or monitor and turns it into a fully-functioning computer. This low-power PC ships with Windows 8.1 or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, though at the moment the Windows version is first to market with the Ubuntu Compute Stick not widely shipping until June. I have an Intel Compute Stick at Phoronix for testing.

Linux 4.1 Kernel Benchmarks With An Intel Core i7 IVB System

Yesterday I ran some fresh tests of Intel Ivy Bridge on the latest Mesa Git code to see if the performance has changed much recently for the slightly-older generation of Intel HD Graphics. Today I've done some similar tests in kernel-space with the Linux 4.1 kernel.

Mesa Git OpenGL Tests With Intel Ivy Bridge Graphics

Most often these days when running Intel Linux graphics tests at Phoronix it's with Haswell, Broadwell, or Bay Trail hardware. However, in being curious if there's any performance improvements for slightly older hardware with Mesa 10.6 or Mesa 10.7-devel Git, I've run some fresh Ivy Bridge numbers.
