FreeBSD 12.1 Runs Refreshingly Well With AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X - Benchmarks Against Windows + Linux

The Golang build performance of FreeBSD 12.1 on Threadripper 3970X was on-par with the other Linux distributions, which in turn was much better off than the Windows 10 performance.

Though when it comes to the Golang performance, the garbage collection speed is a great deal slower still than other platforms.

For the most part, the Java performance of FreeBSD 12.1 on the AMD Threadripper box was comparable to the various Linux distributions under test, which isn't too surprising since all the operating systems were tested with OpenJDK 11.

For the OpenMP-threaded GraphicsMagick, the performance was very good for this threaded image manipulation program on FreeBSD. FreeBSD 12.1 ships Clang OpenMP support finally in base and that default compilation stack was running really well for GraphicsMagick as well as when using FreeBSD Ports for running GCC 9.2 to be in common with the other Linux distributions being tested.
