LLVM Clang vs. GCC Compiler Benchmarks On FreeBSD 11.0
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 27 August 2016. Page 4 of 4. 16 Comments

With improvements made in GCC 6, the MP3 encoding performance on FreeBSD 11 is much faster with this latest stable compiler compared to LLVM Clang 3.8.

There wasn't a big difference in the resulting Apache web server performance when compiling it under the different compiler options.

Well, those are the latest compiler benchmark results to share on Phoronix. Similar to our compiler comparisons under Linux, GCC 6 overall still continues to outperform LLVM Clang while in other tests the results tend to be competitive between these competing compiler stacks. Once LLVM Clang 3.9 is officially out I'll be back around with more benchmarks along with development benchmarks of GCC 7 from Ubuntu/Fedora Linux.
