The Performance Of Six Linux Distributions On The HP Dev One
For the Linux graphics/gaming performance there was some fluctuation depending upon the Linux kernel and Mesa in use by each of the Linux distributions. Clear Linux did come out ahead in some of the tests with it being the only distribution tested opting for the performance governor by default while the others default to ACPI CPUFreq Schedutil.
Even with Clear Linux using the performance governor by default rather than Schedutil, it didn't equate to any measurably higher CPU power consumption or CPU core temperature for the HP Dev One during this Linux gaming testing.
For workstation visualizations with ParaView, the default Pop!_OS 22.04 was tied with Clear Linux for the best performance.
Meanwhile for the WireGuard VPN tunnel software, Clear Linux delivered significantly better performance than all of the other tested Linux distributions while showing no difference in the CPU core temperature or power consumption for this AMD Ryzen 7 PRO SoC.
