Intel publishes 13 Linux benchmarks to help speed test distros


With the occasional exception, Intel has offered healthy Linux support in recent years. Proof positive may be a gift to the community this weekend: the chip designer's Open-Source Technology Center just gave Phoronix 13 miniature, OS-level Linux benchmarks that it had previously reserved for its own use. The tests are humdrum affairs like decompression tests, but they could give a significant lift to developers testing distributions, drivers and other Linux code where squeezing out a sliver of added OS performance could make all the difference. The collection has just been uploaded as part of the Phoronix Test Suite; hit the source link if you're wondering just how speedy that Slackware installation might be.
