In the case of JPEG-XL image encoding performance, Linux 5.16+ now put out better performance than on Windows while Clear Linux with its extra optimizations was the front-runner.

For multi-threaded workloads that do consistently peg all the cores, the newer Linux kernels don't make much of a difference for both the P and E cores being consistently loaded.

LuxCoreRender is one of those multi-threaded workloads without much change while depending upon the rendering scene it bounced between Windows and Linux for who delivered the best performance.

To no surprise, Blender has consistently delivered better performance on Linux for CPU-based rendering rather than Windows and that has been the case for years with both AMD and Intel CPUs.

Linux remains strong for most CPU renderers, even the proprietary ones.
