CliBench III and Linux Compilation

The CliBench III test is especially made to support multiple processors, and thus we are seeing the improvements on the results. In most cases, the results are slightly less than double that of the single processor – and this with the single processor system having an advantage on clock speed by 70 MHz. This tests give you a nice look at how the system performs under these synthetic tests.
Anyone that has been into kernel hacking on his or her Linux system will appreciate the 60% decrease in time it takes for a compile of the latest kernel. The test that we ran here is titled LKC2000 and was developed by our own system administrator and staff member, Warren Togami.
