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.

Perhaps I've misjudged gcc on SPARC by not properly performance tuning the flags I've been passing when I've used gcc. It'd be quite interesting to see the benchmarks in comparison to the C/C++ compilers included in Sun's Forte Compiler Collection.

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

If you really want to get the most from your UltraSPARC system you should probably be running Solaris...
