    Phoronix: Windows 10 Outperforming Linux On A ~$5000 Laptop, Ubuntu Beating Clear Linux

    We are used to seeing tier-one Linux distributions outperforming Microsoft Windows on hardware ranging from $199 laptops to HEDT and server processors and everything in between. Thus it came as a large surprise to us when finding Windows 10 outperforming multiple Linux distributions on a new Intel laptop. Not only was Windows 10 leading, but the performance paradigm shifted that Ubuntu was even outperforming Clear Linux, which normally is the fastest of Linux distributions out-of-the-box.

    This article should kick off a large but consistent round of what for's, conspiracies and other paranoid conclusions.

          Can you tell me if this has the 16Gb NVMe Optane cache module installed?

            No it does not.

              Perhaps some of the explanation would be clear if you made a small table highlighting which of the Intel processor security mitigation the different distributions have enabled.

                Mitigations are shown on the system table.

                But that isn't any real cause unless Microsoft quietly made some improvements in their latest build, certainly doesn't explain the likes of Clear now coming behind Ubuntu.

                  Michael is "-mbranches-within-32B-boundaries" used by all distros or only on CL? it is set as default buildflag on CL - it concerns the JCC mitigation https://www.intel.com/content/dam/su...de-erratum.pdf
                  But this is just speculation.
