Building upon earlier Ubuntu 14.04 LTS benchmarks and tests of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, here's a nine-way Linux distribution comparison done from the same hardware.

Tested distributions for this Core i7 4960X EE + AMD Radeon testing were:

- Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Oracle Linux 6.5
- Oracle Linux 7.0 Beta 1
- CentOS 6.5
- openSUSE 13.1
- Debian GNU/Linux 7.4
- Fedora 20
- RHEL 7.0 RC1

All tests were done from the same hardware with the same settings when testing all nine Linux distributions this week. All distributions were left with their default packages/configurations.

Benchmarking across all of these Linux distributions were done in a fully-automated and completely reproducible manner using the enterprise-ready Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software.
