The x264 video encoding performance on FreeBSD 12.1 also came out strong on both GCC and Clang, being ahead of the Linux distributions but behind Windows 10.

7-Zip was one of the few letdowns of the FreeBSD 12.1 benchmarks on Threadripper 3970X. FreeBSD 12.1 performed a great deal behind Windows and Linux performance for this compression benchmark.

For the Stockfish chess benchmark, the FreeBSD performance was at the front of the race with openSUSE and CentOS for this highly-threaded code-base.

FreeBSD was also performing well with the XZ compression benchmark, much better than 7-Zip.

FLAC audio encoding performance was competitive when using the GCC compiler while the Clang 8.0.1 code compiler was yielding a less than optimal binary.

Similarly, M-Queens performed better on FreeBSD when using GCC.
