    Phoronix: Fedora 31 Performance Is Still Sliding In The Wrong Direction - Benchmarks Against Ubuntu 19.10 + Clear Linux

    The performance of Fedora 30 on multiple systems has generally been coming up short compared to the likes of Ubuntu, Clear Linux, and openSUSE Tumbleweed. With this week's release of Fedora 31 I was hopeful that the performance would be more competitive to other prominent Linux distributions, but sadly that doesn't appear to be the case. Here are some initial benchmarks of Fedora Workstation 31 compared to Fedora Workstation 30, Clear Linux 31450, and Ubuntu 19.10.

    Since this is an Intel processor I'm gonna guess it's the mitigations in the new kernel?

    I wonder what the result would be on AMD.

    Hopefully it's not really losing performance because of poor configuration or something like that. Fedora was always in the middle performance-wise, if it loses too much speed it feels like it might lose that nice compromise between ease of use and swiftness.

      All of the newer distros tested are on Linux 5.3 kernel.

        Okay, but I guess none of them are using the vanilla kernel.

          He is evaluating the performance of the distribution as a whole, including the kernel configuration.

            Anyone else getting a 404 Not Found when clicking to download the workstation netinstall image from the main Fedora download page?

              Blame Fedora's insane super-secure compilation flags:

              CFLAGS='-O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Werror=format-security -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -Wp,-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS -fexceptions -fstack-protector-strong -grecord-gcc-switches -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-cc1 -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-annobin-cc1 -m64 -mtune=generic -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -fstack-clash-protection -fcf-protection'

              LDFLAGS='-Wl,-z,relro -Wl,--as-needed -Wl,-z,now -specs=/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/redhat-hardened-ld'

                I can't find it on any random mirror server either. It seems only "server netinstall" is available for now.

                  Am I the only one that found the headline to be overplaying things/too clickbaity?

                  Still going wrong way? The benchmarks are only for Fedora 30 and 31. It does not show that it is a continuance of a past trend.

                  Secondly, in most benchmarks the results are close and in many Fedora is beating Ubuntu.

                  The displayed results dont reflect the headline.

                    Yes. I browsed two different mirrors and couldn't find it.
