    Phoronix: Debian 11 Performance Uplift Is Looking Great For Intel Xeon, AMD EPYC

    This past weekend marked the release of Debian 11 "Bullseye" as the newest version of this major Linux distribution that is also the basis for many others. Given the popularity of Debian stable on servers, our first round of Debian 11.0 benchmarking is looking at the performance relative to Debian 10.10 on latest-generation Intel Xeon "Ice Lake" and AMD EPYC "Milan" hardware.

    Kernel Details:

    - Transparent Huge Pages: always
    More than anything else this proves that Debian is fundamentally still a server-oriented OS, with Ubuntu having switched over to the saner upstream approach of "madvise" a long time ago.

      Looks to me like the performance improvements are simply from having better support for the newer hardware. I'm wondering if you ran benchmarks of these two on a 5-year old server, would you still see performance gains with Debian 11?

        Could we have a sequel ? Debian 11 Performance Uplift Part Deux : single socket showdown ? 5950x vs intel

        Part3ld boys: z230 hp vs what amd equivalent you have.

          I'm more interested in debian base for docker images. Debian-slim has always been a decent tradeoff of resource usage, performance and stability.
          Musl is improving year over year, but for some workloads is either not as reliable, or notably slower. The reliability issues with some systems drove me to use debian-slim much more.
          (e.g. gunicorn and alpine = weird errors)
