    Phoronix: Coreprio Can Help AMD Threadripper Windows Performance, But Linux Still Leading Performance Race

    Rolled out recently was Bitsum's Coreprio third-party freeware utility designed to off better Threadripper 2970WX/2990WX performance by its own implementation of AMD Dynamic Local Mode compared to the default Windows scheduler behavior. Here are some benchmarks of Windows 10 against Linux while trying out CorePrio's NUMA Dissociater mode to see how much it helps the performance compared to Ubuntu Linux. Additionally, tests are included of Windows Server 2019 to see if that server edition of Windows is able to offer better performance on this AMD HEDT NUMA platform.

    designed to offer better
    Additionally, tests are included for Windows Server 2019
    The NUMA Dissociater mode via CorePrio did help slightly to offer better performance than the stock

    The NUMA Dissociater mode via CorePrio did help to offer slightly better performance than the stock
    but CorePrio did help to offset some of the slower

      Doesn't do as much as I thought it would have.

        Excellent test results.

        I got suspicious because the only result published elsewhere was the Indigo results, which turns out was the "only" test that the utility had the hyped performance gains.

        The rest of the gains (or losses) were in small points of percentage.

        Overall both the Coreprio scheduler patch and PTS test results shows that Microsoft has some work to do.

        With their recent embrace of Linux, perhaps they could pick up some pointers on their NUMA rewrite.

          Bitsum has a new tool out called "NUMAPref" for the Threadripper.

          Increases 7-Zip performance on TR

          AMD has been providing input to the Bitsum folks it appears. Maybe if Microsoft was more responsive?

          For Bitsum, it is definitely trial and error with this Windows scheduler issue.
