    It surprises me that Fedora does worse in all gaming benchmarks compared to Ubuntu.
    I always thought that Fedora would ship with a more up to date kernel/Mesa and even gnome/mutter?

      In majority of cases, Fedora release synchronizes with GNOME release. Both new kernel and Mesa needed to go through a quality check before getting into a stable repository.
      About gaming benchmarks, an average difference of 5 frames above 30 Hz is hardly a big deal considering the hardening features implemented in Fedora. Additionally, frame rate is only a portion of an entire context.

        Clear Linux might be fast but they are not friendly at all. Due to this article I was poking around the Clear Linux web site and tried to determine what version of the kernel and Mesa was currently shipping. Sadly the web site is one big suck! Maybe it is partly due to my knowledge of Fedora and the location of everything, but I can find all of that stuff relatively easily. Beyond all of that their approach to packaging seems to be a bit strained.

        In the end I'm not convinced there is huge advantages for me with Clear Linux. by the way the kernel and Mesa version could be having a significant impact on APU performance which is good reason to want to know that info.

          Does it have trash like SELinux and AppArmor disabled? They affect performance.

            Did you not look at the recent benchmarks? The a̶f̶f̶e̶c̶t effect of SELinux is minimal.

                Minimal? It's even 100% slower in schbench, 90% slower in stress-ng, 12% slower in Apache:

                  Maybe it is a commercial project to shrink server CPU demand for a while. 🤔
