    But this is often inconvenient. For example, delete games with SSD to test another game, delete, and reinstall my game. Another thing to install on the HDD and specify the path in Phoronix

    Looking ahead to 9.5 -

    On my system, the disk benchmarking tests generally fail to run at all. I'll SWAG that they attempt to do low-level "disk" I/O on the device, but the device which I would like to benchmark is an NVMe SSD (PCIe 4x4). It would be nice to offer some "disk" I/O benchmarks which use higher-level disk I/O requests, avoiding incompatibility with NVMe devices.

    I use steam through flatpak, anyway to make that work? Symlinks, or changing the way it's called? Thanks.

    As always, Michael you rock, and thank you for PTS - sounds like another exciting release.

    I was just running some PTS this morning (I was curious about PGO and stumbled across an old phoronix post).

    I haven't quite figured out the PGO testing but I was able to conduct a C-Ray test with three different set of CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS set (no flags, -O3 -march=native, and ClearLinux flags).

    45 second difference (!!) just by adding -O3 -march=native. The aggressive ClearLinux flags improved it only slightly (for this particular test at least).

    Code:
    phoronix-test-suite - master ❯ CFLAGS="" CXXFLAGS="" ./phoronix-test-suite pgo.benchmark c-ray
    C-Ray 1.1:
        pts/c-ray-1.2.0
        Test 1 of 1
        Estimated Trial Run Count:    3                    
        Estimated Time To Completion: 8 Minutes [09:13 PST]
            Started Run 1 @ 09:06:45
            Started Run 2 @ 09:09:51
            Started Run 3 @ 09:12:57
