With Clear Linux, I achieved a new personal goal: building the Linux x86_64 defconfig kernel in less than 20 seconds! Clear Linux offered the best kernel build times of any distribution tested with the Threadripper 3990X.

Moving onto some CPU-based rendering workloads, Debian 10.3 managed to score a win with the Tungsten renderer.

Fedora Workstation 31 and Clear Linux were ties with the rays1bench ray-tracing test.

Clear Linux, CentOS 8, and openSUSE Tumbleweed all offered noticeably better performance than the rest when it came to the IndigoBench renderer.
