First up was the OpenMP Rodinia benchmarks where RHEL 8.0 immediately showed how much faster it can be than RHEL/CentOS 7, which for this particular test can be attributed to the much newer default compiler. RHEL 8.0's performance for this molecular dynamics test is now in line with Fedora / Clear Linux / Ubuntu performance where as RHEL/CentOS 7.6 was in dead last.

RHEL 8.0 also offers newer Go language support though RHEL/Fedora-based Linux distributions seem to have a tendency to deliver slower Go performance than the other Linux distributions benchmarked.

The better GraphicsMagick imaging performance is also attributable to the newer compiler/toolchain on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0.
