This is another first for myself and Amdmb.com. With the help of my friend Warren, we were able to setup a script that compiles a version of Red Hat 7.1 and reports the time it takes for the compilation to complete. I am sure many Linux/Unix junkies are wanting this information. Obviously on this test, lower is better, and the AMD-760 MP chipset with dual processors shows what it can, coming in almost 70% faster than the 1.33 GHz Athlon Thunderbird.
