HP ZBook Studio G7 Aims To Attract Linux Developers, Data Scientists
For those curious how the HP ZBook Studio G7 performance on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS compares to that of Windows, I also ran some benchmarks on the mobile workstation against Microsoft Windows 10 Pro with all available updates. Additionally are the Ubuntu 20.10 benchmarks for the very latest Linux experience against Windows.
Across a variety of GPU compute benchmarks Ubuntu Linux with the proprietary NVIDIA driver tended to perform faster than on Windows, but there were some exceptions.
Likewise, for OpenGL rendering tests, Linux came out in front to little surprise...
The OctaneBench results were neck-and-neck.
To some surprise the OpenCL-based LuxCoreRender performance was faster on Windows than either Ubuntu 20.04 LTS or 20.10.
