Btrfs Benchmarks: Btrfs Is Not Yet The Performance King
Likewise, with FFmpeg the file-system had not made a huge impact with this real world test.
The results at GnuPG file encryption were close between the tested file-systems, but EXT4 ended up being about 2% faster than Btrfs.
Btrfs failed to take the lead again when it came to the Java-powered Bork File Encrypter. 51 seconds was needed to encrypt the sample file atop an EXT4 file-system, but 63 seconds (or nearly 24% longer) was needed when using the Better FS.
