In some of the ParaView data analysis / visualization benchmarks, Clear Linux was able to achieve slightly better performance, but for the most part the results were quite close.

In the Sockperf socket benchmark, Debian was performing surprisingly well with its default kernel.

In the Crafty chess benchmark, openSUSE Tumbleweed was running a bit slower than the rest while Clear Linux, Fedora, and Solus rounded out the top three positions albeit with incredibly thin margins.

With the VP9 video encoding in libvpx was another case of openSUSE Tumbleweed trailing the other Linux distributions.

Debian and openSUSE meanwhile had a good showing with the Himeno pressure solver.
