    Phoronix: macOS 10.14 Mojave vs. Ubuntu 18.04 LTS vs. Clear Linux Benchmarks

    With macOS Mojave having been released earlier this week, I've been benchmarking this latest Apple operating system release on a MacBook Pro compared to Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS with the latest updates as well as Intel's high-performance Clear Linux rolling-release operating systems to see how the performance compares.

      Based on these results, Linux workstation makes much more sense.

        If there was a temperature graph alongside some of the performance graphs so that you can see how quickly thermal throttling sets in, that would be nice.

          Ouch. That hurts. I wouldn't like to be one of the apple fanboys claiming mac is the most optimized OS.

            I have a few things to say.

            - Is it possible to benchmark SQLite again, but disabling fsync on Linux so it catches the cheater?

            - Is it that x264 does not run well on macOS and as such you prefer the (currently) less useful FFmpeg bench?

              Not that I'd call myself a fan boy but even as a convinced mac user it doesn't hurt. When I actually need compute performance, I just use my Cray

                Actually, Micheal was holding it wrong, the results clearly shows it.

                  Fancy. Does it comes bundled or you have to buy separately?

                    As always, you need an adapter plug . A little hard to carry around compared to my laptop, too (https://www.hlrs.de/systems/cray-xc40-hazel-hen/)

                    Kidding aside: The tests involving IO are admittedly not that great but beyond that, it is basically a compiler benchmark. Apple LLVM is probably not even based on vanilla LLVM 6 and due to their programming paradigms, it still doesn't support OpenMP. If you actually care about GraphicsMagick etc., fire up brew, get clang 7 or gcc 8, and you're good to go. That works quite well for my code. Additionally, macOS tends to be very power conscious when it comes to scheduling. At least in the past, the battery benchmarks seemed to indicate this. All in all, the OS simply isn't made for raw throughput.
