For those craving some more GCC 5 compiler benchmark numbers following last week's release of GCC 5.1, here's some new comparison numbers between GCC 4.9.2 stable and the near-final release candidate of GCC 5.1.

Pardon for this light article due to still finishing up work on migrating to the new Phoronix web server while separately working to take care of thermal issues coming about in the new Linux benchmarking server room.

The GCC 4.9.2 and GCC 5.0.1 20150418 releases were built from source and in the same configuration from an Intel Xeon E5-1680 v3 Haswell system running Ubuntu 15.04 with the Linux 3.19 kernel.
