Linux 5.19 Looking Real Good On The HP Dev One, XanMod + Liquorix Also Tested

Written by Michael Larabel in Computers on 11 July 2022 at 09:00 AM EDT.

Across all of the benchmarks carried out, there didn't end up being a significant difference in the reported CPU/SoC power consumption between the tested kernels with this Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U powered HP Dev One.

When taking the geometric mean of all the benchmarks, to little surprise Linux 5.19 is looking damn good on the HP Dev One while Liquorix was in a distant last place. Most of Liquorix's struggles came down to I/O workloads where its BFQ configuration led to much slower performance on the NVMe storage than the other tested kernels. Linux 5.19 is looking good due to I/O improvements at least and will be exploring in closer detail some of the other areas where Linux 5.19 was performing particularly strong on this HP AMD Zen 3 laptop.

Those wanting to see all 100+ benchmarks ran across the five tested kernels on the HP Dev One can see this OpenBenchmarking.org result page for all the individual benchmarks.
