    Phoronix: FreeBSD 12.1 Runs Refreshingly Well With AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X - Benchmarks Against Windows + Linux

    For those of you interested in AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper 3960X/3970X processors with TRX40 motherboards for running FreeBSD, the experience in our initial testing has been surprisingly pleasant. In fact, it works out-of-the-box which one could argue is better than the current Linux support that needs the MCE workaround for booting. Here are some benchmarks of FreeBSD 12.1 on the Threadripper 3970X compared to Linux and Windows for this new HEDT platform.

    ZFS causes some test overhead over Ext4 or UFS. In the very least the kernel module is much larger and is has some extra layers on reads. (UFS is technically FreeBSD's default still in the install tho most ppl change it nowdays..)

    I don't have too much of a problem with it because there can be a lot of tuning on those benchmarks but FreeBSD ZFS should be tested vs Linux ZFS and Default FreeBSD should be tested against Default Linux. Whatever filesystem is used for that distro. That would compare the results you'd see on unconfigured virtual cloud installs.

    I know a lot of people don't use ext4 but it is the default on many Linux distros and the default file system is what is normally tested here. I didn't realize that the benchmarks here all were done in ram and thought some were writing to disk so my mistake.

    Nice.. I wonder why KDE says 12.0 on 12.1 tho.

    Give it a rest now finally? I am writing this from a laptop. With a working WiFi, power management, function keys et cetera. Moreover, it's one of these machines with Optimus hybrid graphics with running OpenGL acceleration.

    Like I said, dude. Sour apples.

    Great article Michael. You seem to be the only one who gives the *BSDs any benchmarking love. I wonder was FreeBSD tested with root on ZFS or UFS? UFS would be more similar to the ext4 default of the Linux distros and ZFS more similar to btrfs.
    It's shown in the system table that a default ZFS file-system was used. But yeah not too particularly important with not any I/O heavy tests being used in this particular article.
