Liquorix 3.11 Kernel Benchmarks
Phoronix: Liquorix 3.11 Kernel Benchmarks
It's been several kernel releases since last benchmarking the Liquorix kernel, an optimized version of the Linux kernel that's advertised as "built using the best configuration and kernel sources for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads." In Liquorix having out their version of the Linux 3.11 kernel since late September, here are some benchmarks comparing Liquorix to recent mainline versions of the vanilla Linux kernel.
Facepalm- please measure LATENCY for Liquorix
I thought we already went through this. Having Liquorix benchmarks without measuring LATENCY is quite meaningless.
Regarding Liquorix being useful or not, it has Debian packages and usually I get new version of Linux kernel from Liquorix sooner than it gets into Debian Sid as "official" Debian kernel. So for me it's useful if for no other reason than getting last Linux kernel into my Debian Sid system sooner. I haven't seen it break anything on my dev machine yet, so it is stable enough for desktop usage at least.
If it gives more latency than stock kernel or not I cannot tell, as I haven't done any measurements and I wouldn't know how- measuring latency is HARD.
different use case - interesting!
Some professionals really should!

This shows once more there are different use cases which cannot be pleased by one kernel only !!!
