Moving onto some CPU-focused tests, Clear Linux was much faster than the others when it came to Parboil while Ubuntu 16.10 with its compiler newer than many of the other LTS/enterprise distributions was tended to be in second place.

Note with the Rodinia tests all of the benchmarking was done with the OpenMP-enabled builds. (The automated reporting of flags here was showing a difference just for the systems that had OpenCL libraries present but in fact were not used during these runs, just comes down to a reporting difference with only capturing one CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS string per test profile.)

Clear Linux tended to be on top for Rodinia while the order for the other distributions tended to vary.

Debian Linux 8.6 managed to strike a win with FFTW.
