I'd say that SPEC INT (2000 / 2006) is more relevant for Atom (SPEC FP would be irrelevant OTOH). Similar code size for, say, Mozilla Firefox or GCC itself would be important. >> -O2 is not supposed to give best benchmark results. > > O2 is wide-used so performance improvement could be important for users. But not at a 5% size cost. Please also always check the compile-time effect which is important for -O2 as well.
