    Phoronix: How Ubuntu 16.04 Is Performing Compared To Five Other Linux Distributions

    As it's been a month since our last large Linux distribution comparison (a 10-way Linux distribution battle), here are some fresh benchmarks of six Linux distributions to see how their out-of-the-box performance compares. From a Core i7 Broadwell system, the updated versions of Clear Linux, Fedora 23, CentOS 7, openSUSE 42.1, Ubuntu 15.10, and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS were compared.

      Without knowing exact details on their "magic flags" I fear they do sacrifice stability/reliability for this...

        arjan_intel can probably provide more enlightenment, but their optimizations shouldn't sacrifice stability/reliability... Keep in mind Clear Linux isn't designed to be an enthusiast/desktop distro but is aimed for servers / containers.

          We don't use any of the scary flags in Clear Linux. We do have mechanism for adding AVX2 for specific libraries as an automatic runtime-detected option (this helps the math workloads like R). We also have a lot of infrastructure to make it easy for us to use -O3 for performance sensitive parts of the OS while using the normal -O2 for the bulk of the OS (and -Os for some of the size sensitive parts).

            I realy like Clear Linux idea and would maybe use it on my desktop in future, with things like Solus OS :> Continue to do great things please

              Clear Linux is rather impressive. I wonder when someone will start making a usable desktop fork of it kind of like Mint?
