Debian: Squeeze vs. Wheezy On Linux And kFreeBSD

Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 11 July 2012. Page 2 of 6. 5 Comments

For many of the tests, Wheezy is performing much better than Squeeze on both Debian GNU/Linux and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD. This is largely due to Wheezy using the more recent GCC 4.7 compiler where as Squeeze is on GCC 4.4.5. However, some of the rest results do indicate some performance regressions in these computational tests while in other areas there is simply no change in performance.
