    Phoronix: FreeBSD 12 Runs Refreshingly Easy On AMD Ryzen 9 3900X - Benchmarks Against Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

    While newer Linux distributions have run into problems on the new AMD Zen 2 desktop CPUs (fixed by a systemd patch or fundamentally by a BIOS update) and DragonFlyBSD needed a separate boot fix, FreeBSD 12.0 installed out-of-the-box fine on the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X test system with ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO WiFi motherboard.

    You could choose Ubuntu 14.04 as well..

      It is hardly a surprise that FreeBSD beats all the other BSDs on basically everything. Still, reports from the other BSDs are always appreciated.

        Whats precisely wrong on him choosing 18.04 LTS? Which is the latest LTS available and what majority of people planning on long-term installation would go with.

            By choosing such old distribution it doesn't tell much about current stack performance.

              Valid point, but there are currently systemd bugs that stop newer distros from booting on these CPUs.

                "current stack performance" is exactly nil, when the systems won't even boot. Besides, LTS is liable to get newer changes, especially hardware support-related ones, backported.

                  People typically pick the latest LTS version for production use so this test shows how their system is going to perform in real life. It's a valid and useful benchmark.

                    What test are you referring to?
                    Previous BSD benchmarks have always been a mixed bag of results with most versions winning in some area.
