    Phoronix: Liquorix 3.8 Kernel Has Some Performance Wins Over Linux

    The Liquorix kernel is a modified version of the Linux kernel with out-of-tree patches and a kernel configuration that is highly-optimized for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads. It's been one year since last benchmarking the Liquorix kernel against a vanilla Linux kernel, but now we have some benchmarks of the Liquorix 3.8 kernel compared to the latest stable Linux kernel.

    Yeah, it's probably just that my win 7 machine has a lot more memory than my old xp machine had. I don't think it's trashing the page file anymore.

    Can you please point me how do you "tweak" this out, if ,say, you compile kernel on your own?

    What are you talking about, Windows XP was notorious for that problem. They have seemed to solve it with Vista/7, though.

    Please mesure LATENCY when benchmarking Liquorix!

    Hi,

    All these benchmarks show is that there are no major performance regressions in Liquorix.

    This kernel is LATENCY optimized. It is supposed to have better LATENCY than other kernels. Michael, can you please stop doing only throughput oriented benchmarks for desktop kernels and add some latency benchmarks?

    This is very embarrassing. And it's the 2nd time Phoronix screws up like this and puts benchmarks that have little relevance. Don't get me wrong. I love Phoronix and I read it almost daily, but I'd like to see it get better and to stop doing embarrasing things like this article.

    Hi, "my" in the sense - my configuration and compilatiion + a few modifications sources [made to build was possible] and e.g patch to removal of info: fast tsc failed. So ... for example, running a version of Brazos:

    AMD APU E-350-1

    AMD APU E-350-2

    AMD APU E-350-3

    Ubuntu.pl/e X t 7 3 kernels

    our script - NeteXt'73

    Greetings

Of course, it must be emphasized that Steven kernels are really good - btw I in recent years do not use BFS and BFQ.
