Back in April I did some very rough performance measurements of my new notebook vs. my desktop machine:
Back then I got the following numbers for a complete build of CMake:
Desktop, AMD Athlon XP2000+: 3:59 min
Notebook, Intel Core 2 Duo: 1:15 min
The conclusion was that it's time to upgrade my development machine. I did that last week.
So, the new machine is a Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad. How long will this new CPU take to build CMake, in all its quadcore glory ?
Here's the number for make -j4: 0:33 min
