    Phoronix: F2FS vs. EXT4 File-System Performance With Intel's Clear Linux

    Intel's performance-oriented Clear Linux distribution recently added support for using F2FS as the root file-system so we were curious to run some benchmarks on it for how it stacks up against EXT4.

    ext4 came out 2% faster than ext4?

        Impressive how F2FS has improved over time. For my personal use I have btrfs as my go-to filesystem. It is fast enough and gives me very easy backup options and flexibility to move between different disks etc.

        Thanks for the review.

            On the topic of other features, I've noticed that a thrashed ext4 drive hurts GUI responsiveness more than on a taxed F2FS or XFS filesystem. Anyone else notice this, or have any insight?

              What are the reasons for using F2FS right now as compared to ext4? On which media would it be beneficial and why?

              I agree that the results are impressive, it is very hard to compete with ext4. On the other hand, where does the advantage of being tailored to flash storage show?

                Well, I was a little disappointed with the results especially after seeing the latest file system benchmark made by Michael, where The F2FS came out ahead in most tests.

                  Theoretically it's about improving endurance rather than performance, no?

                    Theoretically it's designed with the unique issues of a NAND flash based storage device in mind, data integrity, endurance, administrative layout, hardware design, etc.

                    Some of the implemented and future features echo ZFS and BtrFS.
