Ubuntu 7.10 vs. Ubuntu 8.04 Benchmarks

Back in December we looked at the initial Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 2 performance by comparing it to Ubuntu 7.10. In that article we had found the performance between the two releases to be roughly the same. Now that we're nearing an end in this development cycle as Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) will be released later this month, we've ran a new set of benchmarks comparing the latest Ubuntu 8.04 packages to the previous Gutsy Gibbon release.

These benchmarks today are quite simple as we have just taken Ubuntu 7.10 and Ubuntu 8.04 Beta with all updates as of April 3, 2008 and then ran Bootchart, Doom 3, LAME encoding, timed disk reads, Gzip compression, and RAMspeed.

Testing was done on a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 with an Intel Core Duo T2300 (1.83GHz) processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 80GB SATA HDD, and ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 128MB. The ATI Linux driver in use was Catalyst 8.3. For those not familiar with the latest packages in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, it contains (among many other packages) the Linux 2.6.24 kernel, GCC 4.2.3, GNOME 2.22, and X.Org Server 1.4.1 Pre-Release. This is in comparison to Ubuntu 7.10, which ships with the Linux 2.6.22 kernel, GCC 4.1.3, GNOME 2.20, and X.Org 7.2.
