With the first test, the LAMMPS Molecular Dynamics Simulator, LLVM/Clang 3.2 ended up being faster than LLVM/Clang 3.3 from this Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge system.

However, when running HMMer, we see for this scientific biology benchmark that LLVM/Clang 3.3 SVN is much faster than the current stable release of this innovative compiler infrastructure from the Intel Linux system used for today's tests.

With MAFFT, another scientific test workload, LLVM/Clang 3.3 SVN is again much faster than its predecessor. LLVM/Clang 3.3 is expected for release this summer.

The BLAKE2 cryptographic workload is also faster on LLVM/Clang 3.3 SVN.
