Thought I did. My test machine for this is described as:
Processor: AMD A10-5800k apu with radeon hd graphics x4
Memory: 7 GiB
Graphics: AMD Aruba
OS; Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
OS type: 64 bit
Gnome: 3.28.2
Disk: 308 GB

The files used came from a source patch referring to benchmarking OpenCL
functionality and includes 5 spreadsheets (xls all). Included is a python
script to run them as a batch and to write out recalc times.
So, if I understand correctly OpenCL doesn't mean much on this Linux
desktop, but I will be able to try, a little later, on a Windows 10 machine
also so I took that this would however still show the multi-corps threading
support.

I went back and reran the batch with as little else (easily possible)
running on the test machine. Performance increase varied based on the file,
ranging from ~76% - 30%

The files each contain a write up as to what the data represents and what
statistical functions are being exercised.

More (on other follow up email) on these as this we go.

Best wishes,

Drew
