Matlab vs. R performance benchmarking

I’ve put a performance comparison of R and Matlab up on my website since I thinking of doing an R tutorial for the group. You can find my table of results, conclusions, and code here.

    Did you you the standard R blas? I have found significant speedups in R merely by replacing the standard blas with the Atlas blas that can be found at CRAN.

      Hi Albert,

      Yes I used the standard R blas. I’m buried at the moment but I’ll definitely try rerunning it with Atlas this weekend.

      Best,

      Dave.
