In FS-Mark with testing 4000 files spread across 32 sub directories, the Liquorix kernel was the fastest followed by the upgraded Ubuntu 17.10 kernel and then the 4.14.13 generic/lowlatency kernel builds.

The Liquorix kernel was also doing well with the CompileBench workloads while in the read-back test, the low-latency kernel took a win.

In the ebizzy workload for resembling web server workloads, the low-latency kernel had a narrow victory again.

When it came to building the GCC compiler, the Liquorix kernel had a significant first place finish.

But in the much shorter task of just compiling a default Linux 4.13 x86_64 kernel build, the results were close among the four host kernels.
