Benchmarks In continuing with my articles exploring the my SPARC-based Sun Ultra 5, I'm going to cover the topic of compiler optimizations on the SPARC platform. While many are familiar with GCC compiler optimizations for the x86 platform, there are naturally differences for GCC on SPARC, and some platform-specific issues to keep in mind.

Gentoo Sparc

Hey, excellent article. I use Gentoo Linux on my ultrasparc and the best thing about it is everything is compiled with a common set of CFLAGS -- so any optimization settings I make are carried through all installed apps.

If you really want to get the most from your UltraSPARC you should really check out gentoo linux.
