Chrome 89 vs. Firefox 86 Performance Benchmarks On AMD Ryzen + Ubuntu Linux
Curious about the latest standing of the newest Firefox and Chrome releases on Linux, here are some quick benchmarks carried out on one of the systems locally. A larger comparison will come soon while this is just a quick one-page article for those eager to see some new browser numbers for AMD on Linux.
The Ryzen 9 5900X was at stock speeds - the reported CPU frequency is due to a kernel bug working its way to 5.11/5.10 stable still.
Similar to what we are used to seeing on prior Firefox/Chrome releases and with other hardware, Google Chrome is overall still delivering noticeably faster performance at least with the benchmarks available. So nothing really new here, just the very latest numbers and no surprises.
