Early GCC 7 Compiler Benchmarks On Linux: Some Performance Improvements
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 12 September 2016. Page 4 of 4. 15 Comments

N-Queens is faster on GCC 7.0 than GCC 5 or GCC 6.

The Apache performance appears slightly faster when compiled under GCC 7.

For many more of these early GCC 5/6/7 compiler benchmarks, see this OpenBenchmarking.org result file. Aside from the performance changes, for an early look at some of the functionality improvements coming for GCC 7 see last month's tentative feature overview with the committed work as of the end of August.

Up next will be some fresh GCC vs. Clang compiler benchmarks. Like all the benchmarking done at Phoronix? Consider a tip or joining Phoronix Premium.
