Six Linux Distributions Benchmarked On The Dell XPS 9380 Laptop

With the TTSIOD CPU-based renderer there wasn't much change in performance between the Linux distributions aside from openSUSE and Ubuntu 18.10 running slower.

Clear Linux and Fedora Workstation had small leads with the Stockfish chess engine benchmark.

When it came to the time needed to compile the kernel, Ubuntu 18.10 and Antergos 19.1 was slower than the rest.

Or in the case of compiling LLVM, Fedora Workstation did it the fastest. But I wouldn't recommend compiling LLVM on this laptop with it taking more than 20 minutes.

Not that you want to run a production Node.js server on your laptop, but in the case you are a web developer testing code locally, Clear Linux had a slight advantage while openSUSE Tumbleweed out-of-the-box was by far the slowest.
