  • Good benchmarks to check AVX2?

    Good day Phoronix folks,

    So, I built a Ryzen APU powered system for Christmas this year and it has been running ClearLinux without issue. I've noticed that on Ryzen, Clear's glibc doesn't automatically select the "haswell" lib/binary path which includes binaries which are compiled with -march=haswell instead of -march=westmere. So I wrote a simple patch which enables the haswell platform for Ryzen processors. Then I went ahead and ran the CPU benchmarking suite which, basically indicated there really wasn't any substantial performance impact of doing this.

    Are there any other particular tests I should do to offer more insight?
