    Phoronix: Making The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X Run Even Faster - By Loading Up Intel's Clear Linux

    One of the interesting takeaways from my pre-launch briefing with AMD on the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X was AMD actually recommending Clear Linux for use on this 64-core / 128-thread HEDT processor and the platform to which they've found the best performance. Yet, Clear Linux is an Intel open-source project. In any case, here are benchmarks of how Clear Linux performs against other Linux distributions on the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X within the System76 Thelio Major. And, holy crap, with the Threadripper 3990X on Clear Linux I managed to build the x86_64 default Linux kernel in under 20 seconds!

      I usually use T2 Linux to run things faster - https://t2sde.org ;-)

        It certainly was.

        On another point, I'm waiting for the day AMD employees begin submitting patches for Clear Linux.

            It certainly wasn't.

            Big win for TW. - Look carefully.

              Hmm, I'm less inclined to jump on the Arch bandwagon now.

                It is interesting how the brain interprets input according to our expectations.

                Consider again the sentence I quoted in context of the article.

                  Those are some of the more interesting benchmarks I have seen in a while. I have to wonder why Fedora is lagging Centos. What limits are Redhat imposed on Ferdora?

                  Any one read any thing about the thermal foot print/ power draw of this processor? I am wondering if companies can suddenly start halving the size of their data centers or if the power/cooling will just mean you be forced to put fewer in a rack.

                    I have said it before I guess I can say it again....

                    Just come out with a swupd bundle called "kernel-native-amd" that sets all the params and provides the modules.

                    FWIW: I am still having issues with Clear Linux running on a Ryzen 5 3500U.

                    KVM and IOMMU issues (and yes they know).
