    Phoronix: Fedora Workstation 33 Performing Very Well - Runs Past Clear Linux On Intel Tiger Lake Notebook

    Following the recent AMD Zen 3 tests on Intel's Clear Linux a user expressed curiosity over the Intel-backed Linux distribution on Tiger Lake hardware given I hadn't done a multi-distribution comparison there yet. Using the Dell XPS 9310 as my lone Tiger Lake notebook I ran some benchmarks of Clear Linux, Ubuntu, Manjaro, and Fedora. For a change, Clear Linux wasn't the distant front-runner.

    Wow. Quite impressive for Fedora 33. I am wondering if this performance lead holds for workstation class hardware such as EPYC and Threadripper. Also, what is mainly responsible for this?

      So Fedora is the new king of throttling? Doesn't sound like Fedora got better - sounds like the test laptops got worse.

          Fedora is based. Sane defaults and just werks! No neckbeard freetardism bullshit.

            I've used openSUSE for more than 10 years. With KDE. I was a real KDE fanboy. Last year I switch to Fedora (just trying it out) and see if I can tune Gnome to fit my workflow. Mean reason: lack of polish on the KDE front.

            I have to say: Fedora is one hell of a polished distribution. OpenSUSE is still great (I run it on my servers), but as a workstation Fedora is very well executed.

              The Fedora Workstation is awesome! It’s more than just benchmarks. They got hired devs and QA wizards who actually do the boring parts of software as well.

                What the heck have they been feeding the hat felt?

                  Glad to see a reasonable display resolution on this laptop. I was half expecting Dell to push something totally braindead like 4k resolution on a 13" screen. "Because XPS!!111" But honestly, a 13" screen is pretty miserable for anything beyond a quickie task, not sure why they bother with high spec XPS models in such a small form factor.

                    As I recall, the 13" XPS does offer a 4K option for those that want it (and I think the XPS is marketed as a 13.3" screen, which is around 3% bigger!).

                    Because not everyone wants a new messenger bag to haul around a larger laptop as they ride their bicycle to the next gig, but still have a need for a high-spec model?

                    Because everywhere the owner goes they can plug into a larger monitor, so it is really about the portability of the laptop, and watching videos of cats while on the train?

                    Ultimately, I am sure Dell knows what sells, and builds to that market. That some people may over or under buy is not Dell's problem.
