    Archlinux is a generic GNU/Linux distro, that doesn't prejudice itself towards any given use case. Clear linux is like Alpine : explicitly targeted at a subset of use cases : container/cloud.

    Apples to oranges comparison, because Clear Linux uses a lot of non-standard parts in it's platform and other bizarre choices that mean reduced functionality and limited choice in setups.

    There's only one (awful) supported bootloader in Clear Linux, with Arch you can take your pick of all of the major ones. Can't do disk encryption in Clear Linux, so it's useless for me.

    Ubuntu is a marketing exercise, to keep corporate users happy, generally useless and has the wrong philosophy.

    and there you go
    I was asking how it compared in performance on AMD vs Intel. from previous benchmarks, on AMD, clear performed poorly compared to other distros.

    Where the Benchmarks on Antergos run, while on the Gnome-Shell?
    Having used both (and run benchmarks on both), i have to admit those are rather interesting results, at least to me.
    As someone who has also used, I agree. These benchmarks don't make any sense unless the DE, Gnome-Shell, is draining some resources.

    Antergos is Arch with an easy installer + pre-installed apps. In theory you can turn Antergos into vanilla Arch by just removing a repo and uninstalling the default software. In fact, there is a script that does this.

    One of the reasons people use Archlinux, is because Archlinux can easily install customized kernel. For example, try "yaourt -S linux-ck" and choose Processor = Native, wait for build and install, and everything is done.
    You can do exactly the same on Antergos.

    Clear Linux Spanks Again!

    Everybody gets to bend over, even Arch. It's just a matter of how many lashes....

    Nice to know. Sites rarely include Arch in comparisons. Thanks

    Yes, you finally add Arch Linux in your benchmark! Thank you, Michael. I hope you enjoy the installation process.

    Michael,

    ​​​​​Would it be possible to throw solus in the mix.
    That is the readily consumable distro that borrows clear linux's optimizations. That would make other desktop distros relate more to the optimizations maybe?

    That's good, was there a comparison to Intel, just curious how much of a difference in perf from baseline there was on AMD vs Intel? I'd prefer an AMD system and Clear sounds pretty interesting to run for compute work, either as a host or container.

    Clear can run on AMD hardware, e.g.

    Could do some new benchmarks if there is enough interest from supporters...
    That first one in March 2017 is a bit disappointing(and some what the 2nd in Sep 2017) Seems Clear performed worse than other distros, opposite of what is seen on Intel hardware? The tumbleweed results are interesting/good though Will have to look at Intel clear/tumbleweed results perhaps.

    It'd have been interesting to see how benchmarks like postgres would have done without the file system difference impacting it like cited(as well as interesting to see if the file systems used were what contributed to it's perf gains over other distros). I thought that openSUSE defaults for BTRFS have some database volumes setup to avoid perf drawbacks? Maybe postgres wasn't accounted for or postgres wasn't using the correct file location/volume that would have been tweaked(Depending how postgres was installed/setup and if it was supported like mariadb and I think virtualbox are)
