Moving onto the CPU/system benchmarks, the Linux distributions were generally edging out faster as we've come to expect, but in some of the workloads FreeBSD 12.0 was quite competitive with Linux on this dual Xeon Platinum 8280 server.

In the Golang performance, FreeBSD 12.0 generally competes with at least CentOS 7 and its older packages via EPEL.

Clear Linux was leading the race with the Java benchmarks but at least FreeBSD 12.0 did well in some of the DaCapo benchmarks.
