Benchmarks Of GCC 4.5.0 Compiler Performance

Filed under
Software

Last week GCC 4.5.0 entered the world with improvements to the experimental C++0x support, Graphite-powered automatic parallelization support, compatibility with new ARM processors, Intel Atom and AMD Orochi optimizations, link-time optimization, and GCC plug-in support. Over the weekend we decided to benchmark this major update to the GNU Compiler Collection to see how its performance compares to that of GCC 4.3 and 4.4.

GCC 4.4.0 was released in April of 2009 while GCC 4.3.0 made it out in March of 2009. We could not benchmark any release older than GCC 4.3.0 due to build problems on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. We built GCC 4.3.0, 4.4.0, and 4.5.0 from source on Ubuntu 10.04 with the only configuration being defining the x86_64-linux-gnu target and leaving all other options at their defaults. All three versions of GCC were built using Ubuntu's GCC 4.4.3 installation. For those interested in how LLVM/Clang is now performing against GCC 4.5, we will have such benchmarks of LLVM-GCC and LLVM Clang later this week compared to these GCC 4.3/4.4/4.5 numbers.

What is keeping you from switching to Linux?

I'd like to make time for switching my main system but it is not there yet. What I plan to do is however use Linux on my laptop and get used to it this way. While it will take longer than a radical switch, it is the best I can do right now. Eventually though, I'd like to run all but one system on Linux and not Windows.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
