mold is a faster drop-in replacement for existing Unix linkers. It is several times faster than LLVM lld linker, the second-fastest open-source linker which I originally created a few years ago. mold is created for increasing developer productivity by reducing build time especially in rapid debug-edit-rebuild cycles.

Here is a performance comparison of GNU gold, LLVM lld, and mold for linking final debuginfo-enabled executables of major large programs on a simulated 8-core 16-threads machine.
