Thanks for your suggestions for CPU benchmarks in the comments on my last post. I'm very strongly inclined to add that TrueCrypt benchmark and will be giving it a shot today. I'm also sympathetic to the calls for a compiler benchmark, but I'm not sure I'll have time to find the right compiler and project and make sure everything is set up properly, builds right, uses multiple threads, is properly timed, and doesn't compile differently on different architectures. If any of you want to package something up or at least offer some more specific advice about, say, what it would take to use gcc on Windows to build Firefox or something, I'd appreciate any tips.
Ah, and I believe I've just cracked the secret of fully scripting multi-resolution tests of DiRT 2 between that paragraph and this one. Excellent.
