"In this article we have detailed some of the major highlights of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 and how we seek to drive innovation into PC benchmarking and performance profiling.

"Phoronix Test Suite 1.0 was released last June and was based upon the internal work that had built up for the past five years at Phoronix Media and with the involvement of several tier-one hardware vendors. Since the release of 1.0 Trondheim we have delivered quarterly updates to continue enhancing this software as well as to deliver new and updated test profiles. Many major companies have also started using the Phoronix Test Suite for various quality assurance and testing tasks within their organizations. The Phoronix Test Suite has come a long way, but with the release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 we hope to take it to the next level. Version 2.0 of the Phoronix Test Suite offers more than 100 distinct test profiles, over 60 run-time options, and an entire architecture for which independent users and organizations are able to build their own test profiles and suites to customize this software to their needs."
