I would like to see these benchmarks (some or all, at least some multi-threaded too, i.e. where load is close to 100% on more than one of the four), but note it’s expected to get better numbers, e.g. I do roughly 2x on my Linux box (some programs there are faster with lower opt settings, I was meaning to point out, and NOT asking for threads):
$ hyperfine '~/julia-1.6.0-DEV-8f512f3f6d/bin/julia -O0 --cpu-target=core2 --startup-file=no pidigits.jl 10000 >/dev/null'
Benchmark #1: ~/julia-1.6.0-DEV-8f512f3f6d/bin/julia -O0 --cpu-target=core2 --startup-file=no pidigits.jl 10000 >/dev/null
Time (mean ± σ): 1.292 s ± 0.054 s [User: 1.669 s, System: 0.501 s]
Range (min … max): 1.196 s … 1.366 s 10 runs
And please time “first-plot”, in another discourse thread, where I showed this recently, someone said this doesn’t work on Windows:
$ sudo apt-get install gnuplot
$ time ~/julia-1.5-ea669c3d3e/bin/julia -O1 --compile=min --startup-file=no -e "using Gaston; display(plot(rand(10)))"
real 0m0,691s # without display 0m0,400s, and also try other settings.
File intensive operations like git clone, npm install, apt update, apt upgrade, and more are all be noticeably faster with WSL 2. […] WSL 2 run up to 20x faster compared to WSL 1
WSL 2 is a virtual machine, but in their words “not like any VM you’ve seen before”. They utilize a very minimal HyperV toolset to run the Linux kernel.
I’m not sure how helpful this thread is or possibly outdated:
