You can easily try the performance on the Cholesky factorization for
instance. Make sure to have the pkg-config and hwloc software installed for
instance. Make sure to have the pkg-config and

software installed for
proper CPU control and BLAS kernels for your computation units and configured in
your environment (e.g. MKL for CPUs and CUBLAS for GPUs).
