GCC 4.5 Through 4.8 For AMD's Bulldozer: While the new AMD Trinity APUs are what's exciting and being benchmarked at the moment, here are some updated compiler tests from earlier this month on an AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer system...
GCC 4.7 AMD Bulldozer Compiler Tuning: As the latest AMD Bulldozer Linux benchmarks, here are updated figures on compiler tuning for the FX-8150 processor when using GCC 4.7.1.
AMD Bulldozer Performance On Ubuntu 12.10: For those having computers with AMD FX "Bulldozer" processors, here are some benchmarks showing some of the performance improvements made -- and regressions -- in upstream GCC and the Linux kernel that can be found when upgrading to the forthcoming Ubuntu 12.10.
Preview: EKOPath Benchmarks On AMD's Bulldozer: It has been a while since last running any tests of PathScale's EKOPath compiler, but in this preview article are some AMD FX-8150 "Bulldozer" benchmarks of the EKOPath compiler compared to GCC 4.7.0, LLVM/Clang 3.1 SVN, and AMD Open64 4.5.1.
AMD's FX-8150 Bulldozer Benefits From New Compilers, Tuning: After looking at how Intel's Sandy Bridge processor performance has evolved with the new GCC 4.7 compiler and Apple's forthcoming LLVM 3.1 with Clang, here are benchmark results from the AMD FX-8150 "Bulldozer" Eight-Core processor with GCC 4.7.0 and the latest LLVM/Clang 3.1 development code along with looking at the performance impact of various compiler tuning flags for this latest-generation AMD CPU.
GCC 4.7 Compiler Performance On AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer: While we have seen that Intel's Sandy Bridge is doing well on the new GCC 4.7 compiler, has AMD's Bulldozer CPU architecture advanced at all for this leading multi-platform compiler? Up today are benchmarks of GCC 4.7.0 -- with comparative benchmarks going back to GCC 4.4 -- from an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Bulldozer setup.
AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer Overclocking On Ubuntu Linux: While in the weeks since the launch of the AMD FX "Bulldozer" processors we have looked at many areas of computing performance for the FX-8150 CPU, from the compiler tuning to multi-core scaling, one area that hasn't yet been covered under Linux is the AMD FX-8150 overclocking.
AMD Bulldozer "bdver1" Compiler Performance: It is time for another round of compiler benchmarks on AMD's latest FX-8150 Bulldozer processor. In this article is comparing the GCC 4.6.1, GCC 4.7 development, Open64 4.2.4, and AMD Open64 22.214.171.124 compilers in their stock configuration, when the binaries are built again but with the march/mtune flags set to "bdver1", and a third when being built with the "bdver1" architecture and tuning flags along with "-Ofast" for the highest-level of compiler optimizations.
LLVMpipe Performance On AMD Bulldozer, Intel Sandy Bridge: With the renewed interest in the Gallium3D LLVMpipe driver now that this software-based acceleration method is working with GNOME Shell, here are some benchmarks of this LLVM-based software driver when running some OpenGL tests on Intel Sandy Bridge and AMD Bulldozer hardware.
AMD Bulldozer Cache Aliasing Issue Fix: The "AMD F15h cache aliasing issue" fixes have landed, which address cache aliasing penalties for AMD Bulldozer (Family 15h) processors. This can lead to performance improvements for some workloads.
Open64 Compiler Tuning On AMD Bulldozer FX-8150: After recently comparing the AMD Bulldozer with the GCC, Open64, and LLVM/Clang compilers, in this article is a look at the performance of AMD's Open64 compiler when using their recommended compiler tuning options for Bulldozer when building software.
AMD Bulldozer With GCC, Open64, LLVM/Clang Compilers: Now having looked at the AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 performance on Linux, as well as how it's scaling across multiple cores/modules, in this article are results when building a variety of benchmarks under the popular compilers. The tested compilers were GCC, LLVM/Clang, and AMD Open64, including different revisions of these open-source compilers.
