For the latest benchmarking off MSI's Cubi 2 with Core i5 Kaby Lake CPU are some GCC and LLVM Clang compiler benchmarks on Intel's Clear Linux distribution.

As some fresh compiler comparison numbers are tests of GCC 6.2.0 and LLVM Clang 3.9.0 as currently shipped by default on Intel's high performance Clear Linux distribution. All other system settings/packages were maintained the same during the testing process as was the same CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS. The MSI Cubi 2 ships with a Core i5 7200U "Kaby Lake" processor.

All of these compiler benchmarks were carried out in a fully-automated and reproducible manner using the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
