LLVM Clang vs. GCC On Fedora 21 With A High-End Xeon
Out of curiosity for GCC vs. Clang on Fedora 21 in its current development state and some more workloads to stress our new high-end Intel Xeon hardware courteously supplied by MSI, I ran some compiler benchmarks using the GCC and Clang currently shipped by the Fedora 21 repository. GCC is, of course, the default C/C++ compiler for Fedora. The version used for Fedora 21 are GCC 4.9.2 and LLVM Clang 3.4.2.
With the Xeon E5-1680v3 running with the MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard I ran a range of C/C++ benchmarks. Those interested in the results can find the full showdown via OpenBenchmarking.org.
