Fedora 16 vs. Ubuntu 11.10 Performance Benchmarks

After recently comparing Ubuntu 11.10 and Fedora 16 for boot speed and power consumption, up now are various Linux benchmarks under both of these distributions.

This is a comparison of the 64-bit performance of Ubuntu 11.10 vs. Fedora 16 in an out-of-the-box configuration. When it comes to these benchmarks, what's worth noting is that Fedora 16 and Ubuntu 11.10 are both on GCC 4.6.x and the EXT4 file-system. Some of the important differences though is that Fedora 16 is on the Linux 3.1 kernel while Ubuntu 11.10 is on Linux 3.0 and Fedora 16 has a more recent (both user and kernel-space) graphics stack. There's also various other differences from the Linux operating systems from Canonical and Red Hat.

Like the power consumption / boot performance article, three different mobile systems are being used for this initial Fedora 16 benchmarking.

The Phoronix Test Suite is supported by each platform. However, any Fedora users wishing to use the Phoronix Test Suite or OpenBenchmarking.org will want to use the latest version available from the Phoronix Test Suite web-site since the Fedora packages in its repository remain vastly outdated.
