    Phoronix: Running Intel's Clear Linux On AMD EPYC Rome? Still Significant Performance Uplift Over Ubuntu

    The current AMD EPYC 7742 2P benchmarking that is happening at Phoronix is an interesting Linux/BSD operating system performance comparison. That's in the works while so far are some Ubuntu and Clear Linux numbers. Yes, Intel's open-source Clear Linux platform does run fine generally on AMD hardware -- including the new AMD "Rome" processors -- and generally does still run damn fast. Here is a look at Clear Linux on this 128 core / 256 thread server with Clear Linux against Ubuntu 19.04 as well as the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10.

    Does this release of Clear have the AMD specific kernel parameters removed?

    I seem to recall Intel said they were going to remove them going forward but I never heard which release. Just checking.

    It's just not a matter of how its built/compiled alone but also other changes, which in turn would likely end up pulling in many different optimizations.
    For instance at least as far as the SVT video encoder performance is concerned, I asked Intel devs back at the OSTS conference about the differences.... At least back then their explanation for the big wins were at least then attributed to power management optimizations on Clear.

    If it's any consolation, it seems a lot of online journalists are getting hit hard with adblock, but, I wonder how much that will persist after Chrome decides to remove the Adblock extension.
    Didn't know about the kid though (I'm not a Twitter user so if it was mentioned there, I wasn't aware) but congrats - although that might be a damper on time and money for a short term, maybe one day he/she will be able to help run the family business.

    Congrats! Will you kid take over the benchmark farm one day and code crazy phoronix-scripts? Exciting times ...
    I have two kids, one just went to school. First year is hard, to change your life around this little being. But then it gets more and more fun

    Well true, any Bavarian biergarten is heaven to me Or also other fests like Frühlingsfest, Tollwood, 1 May, etc with some good Augustiner or Tegernseer.
