Graphics/Benchmarks

For this benchmarking we used the stock compilers available through the Ubuntu 14.04 "Trusty Tahr" archive, which provided GCC 4.8.2 and LLVM Clang 3.4 -- the current stable versions of each compiler. The CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS set were "-O3 -march=native" to optimize the generated code performance for this particular hardware. GCC 4.8 introduced AMD Jaguar support while LLVM Clang 3.4 followed with the support. GCC 4.9 will already land AMD Excavator (bdver4) support.

Drop cap display problem

On stories using a larger image at the top, the drop cap often appears down in the story abstract, instead of at the beginning of the text. If you provide an email address, I can send a screen capture shot.

Layout
