Topic: Benchmarks Thread
Here's a general benchmarks thread. I'm sure a lot of people are interested in the performance of the machine.
While porting NixOS to my Novena, I timed the compiling through the installer. It compiled builds with all four cores, and tried to do four builds at once. I'm not including dependencies, only the big time sinks:
Nix - 4.5 Hours
NixOS Base - 6 Hours
Linux - 0.5 Hours
LLVM, Mesa, X11 - 6 Hours
It should be noted I'm using a hard drive, not an SSD.
I imagine some interesting benchmarks would be cryptography, FPGA applications and graphical acceleration.
