"GCC 3.4.3 is available via the Image Packaging System
in OpenSolaris 2008.1 while GCC 4.0.2 was installed through the
BlastWave package repository. Sun Studio 12 (2008/10/07) was
installed manually after downloading it from the Sun Microsystems
web-site. Beyond the compiler changes, OpenSolaris 2008.11 was left
in its stock configuration with the Solaris Nevada 101b
package-set, X Server 1.3.0, NVIDIA 177.80 display driver, and
using the ZFS file-system on the entire hard disk.
"The hardware components once again consisted of two AMD Opteron
2384 (clocked at 2.70GHz) quad-core processors, a Tyan Thunder
n3600M motherboard, 4GB of Corsair DDR2-667MHz memory, 160GB
Seagate Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX 512MB
graphics card, and the display was a Samsung SyncMaster 305T
"The benchmarks we ran for this OpenSolaris compiler testing
were LAME MP3 encoding, Ogg encoding, timed PHP compilation, GnuPG,
GraphicsMagick, and SQLite. In the tests besides the timed
compilation, the Phoronix Test Suite built all of the tests from
source using the respective compiler and the resulting binaries
were used for the testing process. All stock compiler flags for
each package were used."
