Metro Redux Linux GPU/Driver Tests Are Coming

Fri, 12/12/2014 - 21:02
Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux launched for Linux yesterday at long last. The Metro Redux titles utilize OpenGL 4.x on Linux and I'm pleased to say they're in (mostly) good shape for automated benchmarking so that we'll be able to run some Phoronix Test Suite sanctioned performance tests of the Metro Redux games on Linux with varying GPUs and drivers...

Ruby Compiled With Clang Is Noticeably Faster Than GCC

Fri, 12/12/2014 - 15:36
While in our benchmark runs the performance of generated binaries between GCC and LLVM's Clang C/C++ compilers are generally quite close, there are exceptions. When it comes to real-world usage of Clang, most companies tend to just utilize Clang for now when producing debug builds due to its faster compile times and better diagnostics than GCC, but GCC still ends up getting used for producing release/production builds...
