Mac Pro Westmere XCode C++ Build

Last updated September 06, 2010 - Send Feedback

This test builds diglloydTools (C++) using an Automator script.

Developers using Apple XCode can rejoice at shorter build times, but XCode does not scale perfectly, even with a triple-SSD RAID=0 stripe. Times shown are second build, a hair faster than the first build.

RAW-file Processing Speed — Save as 16-bit TIF

CPU usage is near the max for most of the build, but there is some kind of serialization part-way through, which reduces the 12-core advantage.
