R vs. RRO (OpenBALS vs. MKL)

The Revolution R Open (RRO) just released a new version based on R 3.12 (Intel MKL). I installed this on Mint 17.1. Now I want to compare its performance against the vanilla R 3.12 I installed on Manjaro a few days earlier, which as compiled against OpenBLAS. I used the benchmark test provided here.

RRO + MKL: 7.347 sec
R + OpenBLAS: 7.557 sec

Now it's a tie.
