    Phoronix: Linux 4.9 Is Showing A Performance Boost On More Systems

    Earlier this week I posted some benchmarks of a Core i7 6800K Broadwell-E system seeing performance boosts under Linux 4.9 and it turns out it's looking more widespread than just affecting a niche system or two. When testing a more traditional Intel Haswell desktop, Linux 4.9 Git is seeing more wins over Linux 4.8 and 4.7 kernels...

    Looking forward to another round of filesystems benchmarking, SSD and HDD.

      Will be great to see i/o scheduller comparison.

        it's a welcome towards 5 kernel.

          This is some really substantial improvements! Could you run a bisection, Michael?

            Any idea what commits caused this?

              Any chance you have any arm performance testing on the 4.9 kernel?

                Huh? These articles have been performance tests or what are you looking for?

                  He was asking for bechmark runs on ARM hardware. Nice to see some substantial perf improvements by the way.

                    Ah my apologies, somehow didn't see the word "ARM" (I guess since I'm used to it being capitalized). Anyhow, would have to see what ARM hardware I have around that's fast that would work for benchmarking and also work on the mainline kernel. I don't think my Jetson TX1 yet works on a mainline kernel and using like a RPi would be too slow until some official packages come out :/
