Following yesterday's article about openSUSE 42.1 Leap being tweaked for better out-of-the-box performance, I ran some benchmarks on the officially-released openSUSE 42.1 to compare it to the older benchmarks I did when Leap was still under development.

The tests of openSUSE 42.1 Leap official were compared to the development tests I did back in September of benchmarking the openSUSE Leap kernel flavors. The new tests were obviously done on the same Intel Xeon + FirePro V7900 (Cayman) system.

SUSE Linux 42.1 Leap Kernel Tests

OpenSUSE 42.1 Leap final ships with the Linux 4.1 kernel, X.Org Server 1.17.2, xf86-video-ati 7.5.0, and Mesa 11.0.2. XFS is used for the home directory's file-system while the root file-system is Btrfs.

All of these follow-up benchmarks were done with the open-source Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software, as always.
